HG FYI: Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener is about twice as sweet as sugar. If using a no-calorie granulated sweetener that measures cup-for-cup like sugar instead of Truvia, double the amount called for in this recipe.

Eating chocolate first thing in the morning is generally a bad idea, but not when we're talking about these low-calorie, high-fiber muffins! So tasty, so satisfying, and perfect any time of day...

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes

1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp. baking powder 

1/2 tsp. baking soda 

1/4 tsp. salt 

1 cup unsweetened applesauce 

1/2 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, light vanilla soymilk, or fat-free milk
1/4 cup Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener; see HG FYI)
1/4 cup light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown) 

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract 

1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with baking liners, or spray it with nonstick spray. (If using paper liners, spray them with nonstick spray.)

In a large bowl, combine both types of flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a medium-large bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Whisk until uniform. (Don't worry if the butter doesn't break up completely.)

Add mixture in the medium-large bowl to the large bowl. Stir until just mixed and smooth. (Batter will be thick.)

Fold in 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Evenly distribute batter among the cups of the muffin pan (cups will be very full), and smooth out the surfaces.

Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 22 - 24 minutes.
