  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 c. brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 c. cocoa
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 2 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 3/4 c. milk
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips


  • In a large mixing bowl or your stand mixer bowl, combine both flours, brown sugar, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and baking soda; mix well.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, applesauce, milk, oil and vanilla. Slowly add this mixture to the dry ingredients until just moistened. Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula or spoon.
  • Coat muffin pans with cooking spray OR place cupcake liners in the cups. Fill each cup 3/4 full with batter.
  • Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing from the pans. Place on a wire rack after they cool for a bit. These are awesome served warm!
