This has become our family's favorite treat. Not only is it delicious but it's healthy and made with natural ingredients.
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup natural sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Mix these well in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp rice milk
1/2 cup spiced applesauce
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Whisk well. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix till fully wet (add more milk if too dry.) Add in
1 large zucchini, shredded
and stir. Lastly, add
1/4 cup chocolate and peanut butter chips
stir. Fill 14 muffin cups that have been sprayed with cooking spray to 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
They're spongy, chocolate-y goodness and, at around 130 calories and 3 grams of fat each, not bad for my diet. Sweet!
