Chocolate Raisin Walnut Muffins

Hubby went for a badminton game today. Usually I will eat out, get some simple takeaway or order McDonald's online whenever he does that. Today I decided to bake myself some salmon. However, it wasn't enough. By 11pm I was hungry again.

Hubby went for a simple dinner after his game and the portion was too small. Similarly he was hungry at 11pm.

So I decided to make something quick and muffins sounded good to both of us tonight.

I made 6 small muffins using the cake cups I had. We only ate two since we are conscious of late night binge eating. The next day, the muffins turned out even better when I had one for breakfast. It was moist and not too sweet for me as I reduced the sugar. When I came back during lunch time and wanted to bring the rest of 3 muffins left to office for tea, they were mysteriously gone. Yeah, Hubby gobbled them down, yet he refused to admit that they were good. ;)
