Yeah I know…it is a mouth full. Essentially, I made chocolate muffins and either added chocolate chunks or white chocolate chips. As long as you get the basic chocolate muffin recipe down, you can add whatever you want.
- 1 3/4 c flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 c cocoa powder
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1/2 c applesauce
- 1 c milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 c oil
- 1 egg, beaten
- 6 oz chocolate chunks, or white chocolate chips (or a mixture of both)
- pinch of cinnamon (optional)
Preheat oven to 400°F and line your muffin pan with paper liners
In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa powder. Add the chocolate chips (whatever kind you decide to use) and mix them to thoroughly coat them with the dry ingredients. This keeps them from all sinking to the bottom during baking. If you wanted to add nuts, or anything else you would do that here.
In a separate bowl, mix the sugars, white and brown, applesauce, milk, vanilla, oil, and the beaten egg.
Combing the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients but be careful not to over-mix. A lumpy batter makes a better muffin. I always add the pinch of cinnamon last, it’s kind of like my special thing 😉
Fill the muffin cups about 3/4 of the way full and bake for no more than 15 mins, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool on a wire rack before eating.
