Ingredients You Need

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F, line muffin tin with liners and spray with cooking spray (this recipe makes 15 muffins or so, so either bake in 2 tins or 2 batches). Set aside.


 In a large mixing bowl, add cacao powder and boiling water; whisk. This step will bloom the cacao powder. Add applesauce and yogurt; whisk.


Add eggs and maple syrup; whisk until smooth. Set aside.


In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk until no lumps.


Add to the bowl with chocolate mixture and gently mix with a spatula just enough to combine. Do not over mix, let batter sit for a few minutes, then stir again.


Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and give a few gentle stirs to incorporate.


Fill each opening 2/3 batter full and sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake on a middle rack for 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


 Remove from the oven, let muffins cool for about 5 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack to cool off a bit more and then enjoy!


In a cool dry place covered for 2 days, then refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 more days. Freeze for up to 3 months.
