Enlightened Chocolate Chip Muffins

Today I made these muffins using a recipe from
Diabetic Cooking May/June 2009
Place dry ingredients in a bowl.

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powdered (I used dark cocoa)
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt

Whisk these ingredients together.

Place wet ingredients in another bowl.

1 cup fat-free milk
1 egg (slightly beaten)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 Tbsp. butter (melted)
1 tsp. vanilla
After mixing wet ingredients together, pour into dry ingredients.

Fold in 2/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Bake for 13-15 minutes at 400 degrees.  Makes 12

Recipe says to use foil cupcake liners and I think
they wouldn't stick as much.
