Skinny Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins


I found these muffins on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to try them. I was a little disappointed. They where ok, but stuck to the wrapper really bad. I like the idea that they are a little more healthy, but sometimes it doesn’t mean it’s better.

1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1 egg white, beaten
2/3 cup diced strawberries
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray 10 muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, gently toss the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.


Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and applesauce until together until no brown sugar lumps remain – a fork works well to break up the brown sugar here.


Add the beaten egg white until fully incorporated.


Add the wet ingredients to the dry until *just* combined – do not overmix. Fold in the strawberries and chocolate chips.


Divide the batter evenly between 10 muffin tins.


Bake for 15-20 minutes. Muffins will be lightly golden in color and a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean. Mine took about 17 minutes. Allow muffins to cool and enjoy!

Muffins stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for 7 days. Muffins can be frozen.

    I try to eat healthier, but you are correct sometimes healthy is not very good.
