Directions:

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a mini-muffin tin with paper liners or grease with oil.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients except for chocolate chips and walnuts. Blend just until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips and optional walnuts. Fill each mini-muffin liner with batter.
  3. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool for about 5 minutes. Transfer muffins to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  4. While cake bites are cooking, in a glass bowl, melt chocolate and honey in 30-second increments in the microwave; whisk. Whisk in oil until smooth and shiny. Place wire cooling rack with cake bites over a foil-lined baking sheet or parchment. Drizzle glaze over top or dip cake bites into the glaze. Repeat until all cake bites have a glaze topping. If desired, top with walnuts.
