Chocolate Chip Coffee Muffins & Meal Planning Made Easy

Because school is starting very soon, I have been trying to get things in line for our dinners.  Everything seems to go crazy once school ramps up and we will still need to eat in the middle of that chaos.  Last week I started putting dinner ideas on my Plan to Eat calendar.  That went over well, so this week I added snacks and breakfast muffins.  I thought I’d share the recipe to these Chocolate Chip Coffee muffins with you.  I hope you enjoy them!

The winter produce from this garden is truly delicious and quite special. Take a peek at Sunbird Farms’ organic goodies this year. I’ve actually enjoyed all of the produce planted here.
