Description

140 calorie chocolate muffins … and they taste wonderful!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • ⅔ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs, Beaten
  • ½ cups Dutch-Processed Cocoa Powder, Sifted
  • 1-½ cup Applesauce
  • 1-¾ cup Unbleached All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare muffin pans (recipe makes 18 standard-sized muffins) by spraying them with non-stick baking spray or lining with paper liners.

In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar until light in color, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and cocoa powder; mix until smooth. Fold in applesauce. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix just until combined (don’t over mix).

Fill cups about 3/4 full with the batter. Bake 22-25 minutes or just until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a couple crumbs attached. Cool for 5 minutes before removing muffins from the pan and placing them on a cooling rack to cool completely.
