My family can never get enough of chocolate, so my healthy muffin this week is a chocolate muffin with chocolate chips.


1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

1/2  cup spelt light flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

4 tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 cup cane sugar

1 cup milk – soy, unsweetened almond, rice, organic

1/3 cup safflower oil or coconut oil -melted

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup agave nectar

2 tsp coffee

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone liners. In a bowl mix flours, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder and cane sugar together. In a separate bowl mix milk, oil, applesauce, agave nectar, coffee and vanilla. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Gently mix in chocolate chips into batter. Scoop batter into muffin cups and bake for 25 minutes. Let cool in muffin tray for 5 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack for another 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
