Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

"This is the best thing I have ever eaten!" Daniel Kirkpatrick.

I have to agree - these are wonderful.  Glad I decided to make them into mini muffins.  These will be a great 2 pp+ snack when I need a chocolate fix.  Next time I may try dark chocolate cocoa. 

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
Makes 12 muffins
Serving Size:  1 muffin
Weight Watchers:
If using coconut oil or butter:  4 pp+
Using applesauce as a replacement for butter:  3 pp+
Mini Muffins:  2pp+ for one, 3 pp+ for two (using applesauce)

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup melted cocunut oil or butter (applesause is a good replacement)
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (click link to a very easy recipe) I used Enjoy Life, semi sweet chocolate chips that I found at Kroger

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Stir together dry ingredients.
  3. Mix in coconut oil, milk and egg.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop into 9-12 paper lined muffin tins. (or 24 mini muffin tins)  
  6. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.  (15 for mini muffins)

You can also make this into a quick bread…just spread the batter into a buttered loaf pan and bake at 350° for 50 minutes! 

These are so good - I better stick to mini muffins - portion control.
