Directions for: Healthy Chocolate Muffins


¾ cup unsweetened apple sauce

½ cup sugar

¼ cup honey

1 large egg

¾ cup vanilla Greek yogurt

2 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup all-purpose flour

½ cup whole wheat flour

½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

½ tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

½ cup mini chocolate chips and a few extra for sprinkling on top


1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the applesauce, sugar, honey, egg, and vanilla Greek yogurt.

3. In another bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

4. Whisk together the dry ingredients and add gradually to the wet. Stir to combine but don’t over mix; make sure the flour has been incorporated (a few lumps is okay). Mix in the chocolate chips.

5. Grease a muffin tin and divide the batter. Top with a few more chips on each muffin.

6. Bake for 5 minutes at 425ºF, bring temperature down to 375ºF and keep baking for another 13-15 minutes or until a toothpick pulls off clean form the center of a muffin.
