Healthy Chocolate Morning Muffins
May 01, 2016

This was a great recipe! I just made a few tweaks: Didn’t want to overmix the muffins, so waited until the end to add the chocolate chips. I also saw the sugar content was 20 g, so I cut the brown sugar and chocolate chips in half. My glasses were dirty after I spilled flour on them, so I couldn’t read the measure and put in 1/3 cup cocoa powder instead of ¼ cup. I didn’t have soy milk, so I used skim cow’s milk. The only applesauce I could find had high fructose corn syrup so I put that aside and substituted nonfat unsweetened yogurt instead. After adding the first egg, I realized I had to break it first, so fished it out and tried again. I think I got the leavening and salt right. Added ½ cup walnuts at the end to make it a little healthier. Added the oil after they started going into the muffin cups because I forgot it with the wet ingredients (canola oil, didn’t have grapeseed oil). I got a full dozen + 6 mini muffins out of this recipe. I noticed that they came out nice on top but a little gooey on the bottom, so I swapped the oven off the broil setting and put them on bake, on the bottom shelf, for a few more minutes. With the changes, the muffins came down to 12 g of sugar and 158 calories each (13 muffins assumed), making them just healthy enough to eat when no one is looking. Meanwhile my family gobbled up the muffins and took away my car keys.
