Whole Wheat & Flax Chocolate Chip Muffins (with applesauce)

Submitted by: LISAUNFILTERED

Introduction

Yummy and Healthy! (This recipe modified from my original recipe with canola oil... has 50 less calories and 6 less fat grams)

These are a little high in fat, but it does have GOOD fats in it. If you want to save yourself about half the fat, use applesauce instead of oil. You will reduced the calories by 50 calories, and you will save yourself 6 grams of fat. (I was using a base recipe for muffins and adding my own additions, i.e. flaxseed and whole wheat flour instead of refined, so I kept some of the ingredients the same.)

In fact, I'm adding this recipe twice, again with applesauce in the ingredients, for the next time I try this recipe. So if you want to use applesauce instead of canola oil, see my recipes.
