Depplicious Muffins (or Chocolate Muffins)
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups of whole wheat pastry flour (or 2 cups all purpose flour)
  • ¾ cups cane sugar (or substitute granulated white sugar)
  • ¾ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup apple sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • coarse sea salt and carob nibs for garnishing (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare muffin pan (oil or paper liners). Combine dry ingredients in large bowl (flour, sugar, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt). In separate bowl, whisk remaining (wet) ingredients until smooth. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and blend until just smooth (do not over-mix!). Even divide batter among 12 prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle tops with carob nibs and coarse sea salt. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 minutes then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
