Chocolate Garbanzo Muffins

Many of us going through cancer or its treatments strive to eat a healthier diet.  However, at the same time, we all feel the need to indulge a bit in our diets, whether that’s because we are having trouble tolerating certain foods and want something we will have an easier time handling, we crave something sweet when we are having trouble tasting things that are blander, or we simply want to “reward” ourselves for getting through another day of kicking cancer’s butt.  Here is an interesting, tasty, somewhat indulgent, surprisingly healthy, and extremely easy to prepare recipe for satisfying our sweet tooth along the way. They are great to go with morning cup of coffee or tea or just as a quick snack during the day.  They are gluten and dairy free, and contain no white flour, white sugar or butter/margarine.  Try it out and let me know what you think!  In healing,
