Good for You Chocolate Fix

I picked up Health magazine on a whim and found this great recipe. It’s for a chocolate muffin that chef Bethany Frankel created for actress Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: SVU). It looks really good in the magazine and with ingredients like oat flour its pretty healthy. I’ll give a try and let you know how good it is.

Mariska’s Joyful Heart Fudge Chip Muffins
makes 8 muffins

cooking spray
1 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup oat flour (if you can’t find it just grind regular oats in food processor)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 8 paper lines in muffin tin and coat with cooking spray.
– Combine applesauce and next 4 ingredients. In separate bowl whisk together the next 6 ingredients. Add oat mixture to applesauce mixture and stir until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
– Spoon batter into cups and bake for 20-22 minutes. Rotate pan half turn after 10 minutes. Muffins are done when tops are firm to the touch.
– Cool slightly and enjoy!
