Do you love chocolate but feel like you have to avoid it in order to support your health and weight loss goals?
No way! These Double Chocolate Muffins are delicious and nutritious!
Yes not only are they double the chocolate, they boast some nutrient dense ingredients and thanks to a few healthy swaps they're actually even richer and creamier than the store bought kind!
I warn you now, while you're indulging in their YUM it may be hard to stop at just one!
1 C whole wheat flour (or gluten free sub)
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. baking soda
4 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 C light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 C nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 C coconut oil (melted)
1 C overripe bananas (mashed)
1/3 C mini chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium size bowl sift together flour, cornstarch, baking soda and unsweetened cocoa powder.
In a small bowl whisk together egg, Greek yogurt, melted coconut oil, vanilla, brown sugar and well mashed banana. Blend well.
Stir mini chocolate chips into wet mixture.
Fold wet mixture to dry - be careful not to over stir as this will create a denser muffin!
Scoop batter into muffin tin, filling almost to the top (should fill 9 cavities).
Bake for approximately 20minutes (or until toothpick removes clean from muffin center).
Eat and Enjoy!
