The past few weeks, my kids have been bored with breakfast. I knew I just had to create these chocolate piñata breakfast muffins in order to create some excitement with the most important meal of the day. They are gluten-free, delicious and filled with a surprise crunchy center. Plus, they are make breakfast fun again! The muffin is a lightly sweetened and decadently rich with cocoa. Truly a great way to start the day right? The best part is that in the middle of these soft chocolate piñata muffins are a crunchy filled center. Talk about an exciting way to start the day! Since chocolate and coconut go so well together, we filled the chocolate muffins with Bakery on Main’s NEW coconut cacao Bunches of Crunches.
To create a “frosting” on these breakfast muffins, we simply spooned coconut greek yogurt over the top. Coconut chips are the perfect breakfast “sprinkles” too. Bakery On Main’s NEW Bunches of Crunches is a unique chocolate superfood “GRAIN-ola”. It is made with oaten clusters loaded with superfoods such as chia seeds and cacao. They also include ancient grains such as amaranth and millet with 10g whole grains per serving.
Whether you stuff muffins with them or snack from them right out of the bag, you will love the flavor and nice crunchy texture. These Bunches of Crunches are even delicious simply in a bowl of milk or dairy-free milk alternative.
