Double chocolate rye muffins inspired by Green Kitchen Stories


There is an amazing couple out there that makes healthy eating so easy and delicious and has been an inspiration for millions of people, me  included, Luise and David from Green Kitchen Stories. I’ve cooked many recipes from their blog and app and I completely love them.

Since I got a big batch of rye flour and I wanted to play a little bit with it, the first place I checked for inspiration was Green Kitchen story. They’ve got a recipe for double chocolate rye muffins, which I wanted to try since a long time. I used it as a base and created my own version of it.
