If you’re a chocoholic (like me) but watching your waistline, try this healthy choc chip muffin recipe!
Trying to lose weight is hard when you have a serious sweet tooth. Ask me, I know all about it! To make matters worse I started baking last year. I guess crazier things have happened : ) Fortunately I found a healthy choc chip muffin recipe. Okay, I’ll admit that muffins are usually bland (let’s just be honest) but this is no ordinary muffin – each one is a heavenly little chocolate cake.
According to the Dashing Dish‘s Katie Farrell, who developed the recipe, each muffin contains just 95 calories, 3 grams of fat, 23 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fibre, 4 grams of sugar and 5 grams of protein. I’m not a calorie counter – it’s too much Maths for me – but it sounds healthy… so I made them!
Light and Moist
What I love about this recipe is that instead of white flour, you use oats and the combination of apple sauce and plain yoghurt helps ensure the muffins are deliciously moist without the added fat.
Tried and Tested
Okay, so my muffins didn’t turn out quite as pretty as Katie’s but for a girl who used to say, “The less time I have to spend in the kitchen, the better!” I don’t think it’s a bad attempt. And they tasted AMAZING!
You might have noticed that I didn’t use chocolate chips. I prefer to break a chocolate bar into chunks – it usually tastes better than cooking chocolate chips. I sent my Mr out to buy milk chocolate for this recipe and he came back with a Areo. Fortunately it did the job but I would recommend using a solid, less crumbly chocolate.
