Cook: 20 minutes
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/3 cup Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener (or another natural brand about twice as sweet as sugar)
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking cups, or spray it with nonstick spray.
Pulse oats to the consistency of coarse flour in a blender. Add all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Blend at high speed until smooth and uniform, stopping and stirring if needed.
Fold in 2 tbsp. chocolate chips. Add batter to muffin pan, and smooth out the tops.
Sprinkle with remaining 2 tbsp. chocolate chips, and lightly press to adhere.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 16 - 18 minutes.
