Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

 Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
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.”
