If you are looking for something similar to a conventional sugar packed dessert than this is definitely not the recipe you care for. But, if you want dessert that is good for your body, not too sweet, packed with fiber, nutrients and screams antioxidants than you came to the right place.

It's light but filling and the best part is that it's sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, hence, guilt-free...it's practically a new world wonder!
There are so many flavors in one little muffin- ghee gives this dessert a hint of caramel, hazelnuts taste like nutella, cocoa powder tastes like chocolate and goes fantastic with sweet chopped cherries.

There is no need to roast hazelnuts in advance, let the hot oven do the work for you. I don't not like making extra steps in my recipes if the end result can be achieved much easier. So, no roasting the nuts beforehand. You're welcome. 🙂
