I love to make muffins.  I have my freezer stocked with them all the time.  They are perfect to microwave for 30 seconds on a busy weekday morning.  The kids think they are getting a treat, but really you didn’t have to do anything!  Quick, easy, and a delicious breakfast.

These muffins are full of chocolate, and could almost double as a dessert.  Fresh out of the oven the melted chocolate chips almost make it like a molten chocolate cake.  BUT, there is a big but involved.  They are healthy!  Shhhhh…you don’t have to tell anyone!  I found this recipe over at Dashing Dish.  She came up with the recipe when trying to recreate Chocolate Chunk Vitatop Muffins.  I have never had those before, so I don’t know how they compare, I just know they were delicious!  I only had milk chocolate chips on hand, so that is what I used.  Mini chips would be great to if you had them too!

Triple Chocolate Muffins
From Dashing Dish

1 3/4 cup oats (quick cooking or old fashioned)
3 egg whites
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used regular nonfat vanilla yogurt)
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup hot water
1 cup sugar substitute (like Splenda)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare 12 cup muffin tin with liners or spray well.
Using a food processor blend all ingredients together except the chocolate chips.  Mix until smooth.  Pour batter into a bowl, and stir in half of the chocolate chips.  Place into muffin tins., filling about 2/3 full.
Bake for 10 minutes.  Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on muffins.  Return to oven and bake for an additional 2-5 minutes.
