Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate Brownie Week.
Chocolate Cherry Chia Muffins from Muffin Revolution (Richmond, CA)
This grain-free, paleo-friendly and Non-GMO muffin was satisfying and less sugary sweet than most muffins or brownies (thank you!). Sweetness was supplied by dates and fruits.
The texture was slightly more coarse—it was made with blanched almond meal/flour—than processed white grain flours. The chocolate flavor was pleasing; and the cherry and chia flavors were so well incorporated they might be missed.
So, while this is technically a muffin and not a brownie, if one were to bake a less-sweet, paleo brownie it might be similar to today's chocolate cherry muffin.
The Muffin Revolution muffins also contained fruits and vegetables (apples, bananas, blueberries, cherries, zucchini) and eggs.
