Low-Fat Chocolate Muffins

Here’s a new recipe I tested today. They were good. I’m freezing them tonight to see how well they reheat for breakfast.


1 C. plus 2 T. whole wheat  or white flour
3/4 C. brown sugar
3/4 C. unsweetened cocoa
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/4 C. egg substitute
1 egg
2 t. vanilla
1/2 C. prune puree (I used baby food)
3/4 C. water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Do not over-mix. Spoon into muffin tin and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Makes 12 muffins.

Note: You can substitute 2 egg whites for the 1/4 C. of egg substitute.
