Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided use
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil

Instructions

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease 12 muffin cups or line muffins cups with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, brown sugar, ¾ cup chocolate chips, and cocoa powder.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla, egg, applesauce, milk, and vegetable oil until smooth; pour into flour mixture and stir until the mixture is just combined. Don't over mix!

  4. Divide the prepared batter between the 12 prepared muffin cups, filling each one about 2/3 full. Divide the remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chips between muffins, sprinkling them over the top of each one.

  5. Bake muffins, uncovered, on center rack, in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes.
  6. As soon as the muffins are removed from the oven, gently place a sheet of foil on top. Let the muffins cool covered, then remove them from the muffin tin. Store in an air tight container.
