This recipe is from a British cookbook called First Meals. I made it a little healthier by substituting whole wheat flour for white and applesauce for oil. I also used frozen berry mix for the fresh berries and it worked out fine, but I left the fresh berries in the recipe.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F and line a muffin pan with muffin papers.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, salt and baking powder and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the applesauce, egg, vanilla and milk.
  4. Add the mixed dry ingredients and stir until blended.
  5. Gently fold in the berries and chocolate.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the muffin papers and sprinkle with demerara sugar.
  7. Bake for about 25 minutes until risen and just firm. Allow to cool a little, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
