Healthy chocolate muffins, that sounds almost impossible, doesn't it? But these muffins with less sugar, less butter, and whole wheat flour are certainly a good choice. And they're delicious with an intense chocolate flavor.
Healthy, chocolate, and muffins in one sentence. Can that be true? Well, that depends on what you call healthy. Personally, I find this a reasonably healthy variation on my old chocolate muffin recipe, because you replace some of the sugar with apple butter. And you also use yogurt instead of butter and partly whole wheat flour.
My opinion is that they are much healthier than the chocolate muffins that I normally eat. And if that is healthy enough for you, you may seek your own opinion.
Intense chocolate flavor
What I find especially important is that they have not lost any taste compared to the original one. The chocolate muffins got a nice structure, moist, and have an intense chocolate flavor. I'm going to make these more in the future!
