|1 3/4 cup||Oats|
|3/4 cup||Unsweetened cocoa|
|1/2 cup||Unsweetened applesauce|
|1 tsp||Vanilla extract|
|1/2 cup||Plain greek yogurt (or regular plain low fat yogurt)|
|1/2 tsp||Cream of tartar (or 2 tsp. vinegar)|
|1 1/2 tsp||Baking powder|
|1 1/2 tsp||Baking soda|
|1 cup||Hot water|
|1/2 cup||Baking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 1|
|1/2 cup||Semi-sweet chocolate chips|
|Tip||Foil cupcake liners, remove the inner paper lining (because paper liners tend to stick to muffins!)|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil cupcake liners, or spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
*Note, you could skip this step by putting all of the chips in the batter, and baking the muffins for 12-15 min straight, but this method gives the muffins the traditional ‘VitaTop Muffin’ look with the chocolate chips on top!
