Let’s talk pomegranates.
Pleazzzz tell me you have had pomegranate seeds or arils as they are properly called, but who am I kidding we are SO not proper over here.
Pomegranate seeds are the most delicious thing about winter, I mean why should summer have all the fun?
Now, normally I don’t mix fruit and chocolate. Unless…..unless it’s chocolate and bananas. But I mean it’s chocolate and bananas, so that just does not count. Actually, I can not think of anytime were I have ever mixed my fruit (other than bananas) with chocolate.
I know. I know. What about Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Chocolate Mousse with Raspberries or Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake. Nope, none of those will fly around here. We like our fruit as fruit and our chocolate, well very chocolaty. What can I say, we don’t mess around when it comes to chocolate.
So I have no idea what come over me when I decided to make chocolate chip muffins……..with pomegranate seeds.
While I have changed my tune! These muffin are soooo good. I mean like lick the muffin wrapper clean good (trust me I have done this……several times now).
You guys, words do not describe this muffin’s deliciousness. The pomegranate seeds just make these muffins…..not the chocolate! WOW! I can not believe I just said that, but it’s true. The chocolate really just helps the pomegranate seeds shine.
Oh, yeah. Did I mention these are butter free and whole wheat?
Pop um like candy!
The most moist muffin you’ll ever eat. No, seriously.
