1 3/4 cup Honeyville Quick Oats
3 Egg Whites
3/4 cup Organic Cacao Powder (or you could substitute Baker's Cocoa instead)
1/2 cup Applesauce
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
1 cup Hot Water
3/4 cup Coconut Sugar (or regular Sugar if you prefer)
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine oats, egg whites, cacao powder, applesauce, vanilla, greek yogurt, cream of tarter, baking powder, baking soda, salt, water, and coconut sugar, and blend together with an electric hand mixer until a thick batter forms.
In your USA Pan Muffin Pan, lined with muffin cups, pour batter evenly into each cup.
Place a few dark chocolate chips in the center of each muffin.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes, or until muffins are springy when touched. Remove and let cool in pan for 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack.
Rich, flavorful, and with the most amazing, soft texture, these cookies are sure to tackle that chocolate craving you've been living with. The cacao gives each muffin a super dark color, but packs each one with an amazing, over-the-top flavor that can't be beat. The chocolate chips melt perfectly in the center to give the right amount of taste and texture.
If chocolate is one of your many loves, than these are the muffins for you!
