Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Did you know that cocoa is the highest endorphin-producing food in the world?! No wonder I always say chocolate makes everything better! Here’s a simple Double Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe with basic healthy swaps ???? The swaps are not like “weird” healthy. And what I mean by that is that the muffin recipe doesn’t use weird ingredients that you would have a hard time finding. It’s healthy swaps like applesauce instead of butter and whole wheat and oat flour instead of just all-purpose white flour. Those little swaps won’t have too much of an effect on making this an indulgent treat. But they certainly affect the calories and fat – only 102 calories and 1.5g of fat.

So you know you’ll be having like 4 of them, right? Don’t worry I won’t judge…after all that chocolate IS making us happier!
