Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Muffins


Gooey melty chocolate.  There’s not much that’s better!




Usually when I’m playing around with recipes I have to make them several times, tweaking them each time before it turns out just right.  But this time it turned out pretty amazing on the very first try!

This is both a treat and a sweet, done in a more healthy way.  No oil or butter necessary.  Made with whole wheat pastry flour- all the nutrition of whole wheat flour without the density.  If you’re not already baking with it you definitely should be(I usually get it in bulk at my local health food store, but Arrowhead Mills, Bobs Red Mill, and King Arthur Flour are some brands to look for)!

These babies clock in around 133 calories and are super easy to make, so get in that kitchen and get to baking!
