These triple chocolate chunk muffins are extra delicious because they are healthy too! I guess I should use the term healthy loosely, but they are under 300 calories a muffin which is amazing considering they have gooey chocolate inside! I figured these would be a great weekend treat and something you can bake for a party, picnic, or Sunday morning.
I love anything that involved chocolate and muffins are one of my favorite morning treats so this combination works perfectly together. The recipe is not too hard and anyone who loves baking will appreciate this recipe. There is something about muffins that just make me all warm and fuzzy inside and the comfort of chocolate just adds to that feeling!
3/4 cup oats
3 egg whites
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup hot water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
O Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with foil cupcake liners, or spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
O In a blender, (or food processor), mix all of the ingredients together, except for chocolate chips. Blend until oats are ground and mixture is smooth.
O Place mixture in a bowl and gently stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop mixture into prepared muffin pans.
O Place muffins tins in the oven for 10 minutes.
You can substitute the sugar with a sugar substitute to make these muffins even healthier. I am drooling over these muffins already and cannot wait to try them out! These would be great for a breakfast on the go during the week and even great for a lunch time snack! No matter who tries these muffins they are guaranteed to want more!
