Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and place muffin liners in a muffin tin.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add and whisk together all dry ingredients EXCEPT chocolate chips to combine.

  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredient mixture. Add all wet ingredients to the well, and then mix into dry ingredients to combine. Mix until batter is wet, and then stop. If you over-mix, the muffins may end up more dry or crumbly than we'd like.

  4. Distribute the muffin batter evenly into the lined muffin tin. Place in the oven and bake at 350F for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool on a wire rack before serving. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
