Notes: Do you get the play on words? They are coconut muffins, and cocoa/walnut muffins…funny huh? I woke up and this popped into my head and I started laughing. I usually have song lyrics in the morning, but since this project began it has all been food. Be careful when cooking chocolate things not to over bake them. Just stay near them and check them when you want. Enjoy these for breakfast, or frost them with something creamy and have them as a dessert. You can add different nuts too if you like.
