MAKEOVER: Low Fat Dark Chocolate Muffins (by ELVISINTHEHOUSE)

View the original recipe for Low Fat Dark Chocolate Muffins

Introduction

These muffins are satisfying enough that I was able to omit the chocolate chips from the recipe, which allowed me to use a whole egg instead of egg whites and add some oil, and still reduce the calorie count. Sometimes I add a couple of tablespoons of chopped walnuts on top before baking.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 c. old fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
    1 c. non-fat milk
    1 c. whole wheat flour
    2/3 c. brown sugar
    1/3 c. unsweetened applesauce
    1 egg
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    6 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped (optional)




Tips

Makes a decadent breakfast.


Directions

Soak the oats in milk for about one hour.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and then spray the muffin pan with cooking spray.
Combine the oat mixture with the applesauce and egg, and mix until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix until just combined. Do not over-mix of the muffins will be tough. Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan, forming a total of 12 muffins. Top with chopped walnuts, if using.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until done. Remove from pan and enjoy.
