    HokiesMom's Note:

    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.

      These are my go to for a low fat chocolate treat! They are good. You can taste the apple sauce but considering their low fat state, I feel like it is a good trade off. I usually make mini muffins and figure each one has about 30 - 40 calories. I lost this recipe for a while and tried MANY MANY others and none I have found were even half as good as these! The only thing I change is substituting whole grain flour for white. I haven't noticed a difference.

      I also used Splenda instead of sugar. They are very good and moist as being low-fat and low-sugar. Very low-calorie. That was what I was looking for. I didn't garnish them with almonds. Thanks Melissa :) Made for Gimme 5 tag game

      Considering that there is such a very low fat content and virtually no sugar at all (I used Splenda) in these dark chocolate morsels are they are outstanding. Very chocolaty tasting and so easy and quick to make, whats not to love, :D.
