It's hard having a food photographer for a mom.
I thought a great snow day baking project would be these Triple Chocolate Muffins I have made a bunch of times. My oldest was asking for chocolate cake. My middle was asking for chocolate cookies. My youngest was asking for a sweet treat.
I thought these would be great because they are secretly healthy muffins. There is no flour at all in the recipe, (it uses oats instead) and it whips up quick in the food processor. It's easy to make with the kids and they feel like they have a little personal chocolate cake just for them.
The only problem is that I feel compelled to photograph them first. My poor family needs to wait until I'm done in the studio before they are allowed to even get near them.
It's hard being them :)
