Ingredients

    1/3 cup wholewheat flour
    1/4 cup agave nectar
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/4 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    6 oz/170g fat free vanilla yoghurt
    3 egg whites
    1/2 tsp almond extract
    7oz/220g unsweetened, canned, chopped cherries

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease or line 6 or 12 cups of a muffin tin.

2. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in medium bowl and mix well, then stir in the yogurt, agave nectar and almond extract.

3. Beat egg whites in small bowl with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter until just blended.

4. Gently fold in the cherries and divide the batter evenly between the 6 or 12 muffin cups.

5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until tops are puffy and edges are set – the centers will still be slightly “moist” when you remove them from the oven, but they will firm up while cooling.

6. For the cupcakes, you may wish to add some frosting (not included in calorie count)

  • I mixed this up the night before eliminating the need to soak oats for 1 hr. In the morning, it was easy to fill muffins tins and bake. The flavor/texture was OK - I think we prefer other muffin recipes but you don't know if you don't try. :) - 5/30/11
