The title says it all! These extra chocolaty muffins come from Theresa Harrington of Sheridan, Wyoming, who uses nutritious choices like whole wheat flour and applesauce to make the muffins lighter without sacrificing any flavor. And she loves to share them, too. She writes, “We make these for breakfast at the school where I work.”

"I thought these were fairly sweet, even with the "sneaky" healthy ingredients. My daughter thought they needed a little more flavor. I topped hers with store bought vanilla icing and she loved them!"

"These were delicious! I ate one for dessert and heated it lightly in the microwave until the chocolate chips were gooey. Excellent muffins! (They freeze well too)."

"Yummy! This reminds me of a wonderful bed and breakfast that served these warm, softly melting and chocolately delicious. I make extra and freeze them. Plus, I add extra chocolate chips on top as the cool off."

"Turned out really moist, and I love the fact that they're healthy. Made them for my boyfriend (who isn't exactly a health food advocate) and he loved them! Definitely will make again."
