Keto strawberry, almond, and chocolate muffins

We had strawberries sitting in the fridge so when I saw this recipe I was delighted. Chocolate and strawberries are a great combination. The recipe itself was very straightforward. The flavour of the muffins was sweet from the strawberries and then you got the dark flavour of the chocolate. The texture was excellent with a crunch from the chocolate chips. The combination was delicious. I kept the baked muffins in a box in the fridge because of using fresh fruit. It didn’t matter as they were gone in three days. This recipe is worth trying.
