Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

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.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min./batch YIELD:32 servings


  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1-3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1-3/4 cups fat-free milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites, egg, applesauce, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • 2. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray; fill three-fourths full with batter. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 32 muffins

"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!"

"Excellent receipe. My Grandchildren love them and they don't like much. Especially since it has applesauce and wheat flour in it but they don,t know it has some good stuff in it. They just know it tastes good! Thanks to the gal in Wyoming!"
