Double Chocolate Muffin-Cupcakes

The fabulous thing about not following a recipe or attempting to wing it when baking (mostly because you hate authority) is that you get to make up the title of the baked good yourself.  Pretty cool, huh?

My double chocolate muffin-cupcakes are not sweet enough to be cupcakes but a little too sweet to be a muffin.  I'm still considering making some frosting for these guys but they are relatively healthy now so I might only frost half.  And just eat the rest of the frosting some other time.

*Please note this was my first time experimenting with a chocolate muffin/cupcake so the measurements below can be altered based on your preference
  • 1.5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 to 1 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want them)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 small package of apple sauce (6 oz or so)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1/2 milk of choice
  • Chocolate chips (to taste)
-Mix ingredients 1-5 (dry) together and mix ingredients 6-8 (wet) together in separate bowls
-Add wet ingredient to dry and stir, adding more milk if the mixture is too dry
-Fold in chocolate chips
-Place in muffin tins and bake in a pre-heated oven for 22 minutes
