Skinny Chocolate Muffins

I am all for rationalizing my indulgences and turning guilty pleasures into just pleasures. Especially when it comes to chocolate. I recently made these muffins and loved them. I want to work on making them stay a bit moister for longer - let me know if you have any tips!

  • 1/2 c brown sugar + 1 tbsp. brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1/4 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 margarine, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In one bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt
  3. In a second bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients
  4. Pour the mixture from the second bowl into the first bowl
  5. Stir until you have a smooth batter
  6. Pour into a nonstick muffin tin coated with cooking spray
  7. Fill until half full
  8. Bake 20 minutes, or until the toothpick test comes out clean
  9. Enjoy!
