Ingredients:

1 3/4 cup

Oats

3

Egg whites

3/4 cup

Unsweetened cocoa

1/2 cup

Unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp

Vanilla extract

1/2 cup

Plain greek yogurt (or regular plain low fat yogurt)

1/2 tsp

Cream of tartar (or 2 tsp. vinegar)

1 1/2 tsp

Baking powder

1 1/2 tsp

Baking soda

1/4 tsp

Salt

1 cup

Hot water

1/2 cup

Baking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar1

1/2 cup

Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Tip

Foil cupcake liners, remove the inner paper lining (because paper liners tend to stick to muffins!)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil cupcake liners, or spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a blender, mix all of the ingredients together, except for the chocolate chips. Blend until oats are ground and mixture is smooth.

3. Place mixture in a bowl and gently stir in 1/2 of the chocolate chips (set the rest aside). Scoop mixture into prepared muffin pans.

4. Place muffins tins in the oven for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, remove muffins from the oven (but don’t shut oven off), and distribute the other half of the chocolate chips on top of each muffin.

5.Place the muffins back into the oven and bake for an additional 2-5 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool muffins before removing from pan. ENJOY!
