Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

Every now and again, I get a little hankering for some chocolate – especially during the holidays! I gave into temptation the other day and picked up a bag of dairy and soy-free chocolate chips — don’t freak out, I grabbed fresh raspberries too! Home I went to bake Paleo Chocolate Raspberry Muffins, dairy and grain free.

My kids didn’t know what to think when they got home from school!

Makes 2 dozen.
