Double Chocolate Mini Muffins

I love to find new brownie recipes, but I think I have so many now that I don’t think I will ever have time to try them all.  This one sounds especially healthy — not too sweet — using natural ingredients for the sweeteners.

This recipe is adapted from a recipe from the blog Paleo Spirit, but I made these ones egg-free to fit my family’s allergies. These little treats are moist and good for any chocolate craving, but are still very healthy and sweetened with fruit! You can make these in an 8×8” pan, but the mini muffins make portion control much easier!
