1/5 Photos of Good for You Chocolate Muffins
Okay - well they might not be good for you but they are Better For You Chocolate Muffins than a standard muffin. These use applesauce in place of oil, fat-free milk and egg substitute. I love the addition of the sliced almonds as called for in the original recipe but I've also used a white chocolate chip & peanut butter chips in it's place for a fun twist to the muffin. Original recipe was found in a Simple & Delicious flyer submitted by C. Gaus.
