I have been working on my life goal of being able to cook everything and anything which I document on This recipe was the result of shopping for ingredients I hadn't yet used. This experiment proved to be delicious. I baked these 2 times the first week I came up with them just to be able to smell the aroma it filled my home with. For lavender lovers, this is an immediate hit. You taste it throughout while also biting into chunks of dark chocolate. These muffins fill its surroundings with a lovely lavender sent when left out.
