Triple Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup Oats
  • 3 Egg whites
  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Plain Greek yogurt (or plain low fat yogurt)
  • 1/2 tsp Cream of tartar (or 2 tsp. vinegar)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Hot water
  • 1/2 cup Baking stevia or 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar
  • 1/2 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil cupcake liners, or spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. TIP: Remove the inner paper lining of the foil cupcake liners (paper liners tend to stick to muffins)
  2. In a blender (or food processor), mix all ingredients together, except for the chocolate chips. Blend until oats are ground and mixture is smooth
  3. Place mixture in a bowl and gently stir in 1/2 of the chocolate chips (set the rest aside). Scoop mixture into prepared muffin pans
  4. Place muffin tins in the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove muffins from the oven (but don’t shut oven off) and distribute the other half of the chocolate chips on top of each muffin.
  5. Place muffins back into the oven and bake for an additional 2-5 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Cool muffins before removing from pan and enjoy!
