Yesterday was my birthday. I am 37 years young. I had an amazing day. Jon got me the most amazing present ever. He got me a mint great Electra Cruiser, equipped with a basket and a bell. I have wanted a cruiser for years and I am so, so happy! I took it for a spin around the block with our pup Bella in the basket. She loved it. As did I. Since I am 100% dedicated to this journey, I stayed on plan with my food all day. We cooked a lovely dinner at home, enjoyed a couple of low carb libations and even saved room for this sweet treat. If felt so great at the end of the day to know that celebrating does not have to equal a binge. I ended my day with a full heart and a happy tummy.
Note: I realize that cupcakes normally call for frosting, but the gooeyness of these, combined with the melty chocolate chips just screamed cupcake to me and not muffin. This recipe was inspired by a recipe from the lovely and talented Carolyn at All Day I Dream About Food
