These low-fat muffins are so good. They have a great texture and good chocolate flavor, especially considering that they are so much healthier than the regular version. This recipe is from a book called Gloria's Gourmet Low-Fat Muffins.

I thought these were wonderful! I tried to replace the honey with unsweetened applesauce & compensate for the sweetness by upping the Splenda (which I used to replace the sugar) & it just didn't work! So I made the recipe according to plan & it worked beautifully. I replaced the white flour with whole wheat pastry flour, used low fat buttermilk & 1/2 cup mini choc chips. I got 20 med sized muffins out of this. Perfect to satisfy a choc lover!

These were very nice for such a low fat recipe - i had to stop myself eating them cos they're almost guilt free! I didn't have any wholewheat flour so I just used white and I didn't have choc chips so I just left them out - they turned out fine thoughh. They did stick to the paper cups a little however and a very smooth texture.

This was a great low-fat recipe! My husband had no idea it was a healthier version. I put a couple extra chocolate chips and granulated sugar on the tops of the muffins before putting them in the oven so they looked prettier ;) Yum!
