    For the filling:
    8 ounces cream cheese, regular or reduced fat, at room temperature
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1 large egg white, at room temperature
    2 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

    For the cupcakes:
    1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
    5 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup water
    1/4 cup Canola oil
    .16 cup unsweetened apple sauce
    1 tablespoon white or cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the filling: with a hand mixer, beat together cream cheese, sugar, and egg white until smooth. Stir in the chopped chocolate pieces. Set aside.

For the cupcakes:
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin, or line the tin with paper muffin cups.

2. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla.

3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients, stirring until just smooth. Do not over stir.

4. Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Spoon a few tablespoons of the filling into the center of each cupcake, dividing the filling evenly. This will fill the cups almost completely.

5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops are slightly golden brown and the cupcakes feel springy when gently pressed.
