Royal Recipe: Cocoa Walnut Muffins
What could be better on a cold day than freshly baked, warm muffins? Not a whole lot, which is why we are in love with this recipe for Cocoa Walnut Muffins. The walnuts are rich in potassium, which is a natural electrolyte that helps your muscles function normally (among other things). Serve with Greek yogurt and berries for a yummy and healthy winter snack.
