Skinny Chocolate Muffins

/

Skinny and chocolate aren't really two words that I picture going together. You either have skinny, which when in regards to food typically means all the unhealthy things like fats, oils and sweets are removed. And then you have chocolate which has fats, oils and is sweet. However, there is a way to combine the two. And I suggest making this muffin your way to do it.

Ingredients:
    • 1 1/4 cup chocolate Almond milk
    • 2 cups All Bran cereal
    • 1 egg
    • 3 tbsp. non-fat plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
    • 1 cup flour
    • 1 tbsp. baking powder
    • 1 tbsp. sugar
    • 1/4 tsp. salt 
    • 2 tbsp. mini chocolate chips 
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a muffin-pan with liners and spray with non-stick spray.
2. Combine chocolate almond milk and cereal together. Let soak for 2 minutes, then stir in the egg and Greek yogurt.
3. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Pour the milk mixture into they dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until no lumps of flour remain.
4. Scoop into the prepared muffin pan, filling 3/4 of the way to the top. Sprinkle the tops with the mini chocolate chips.
5. Bake for 14 minutes.
6. Serve warm, or if not eating immediately, transfer to an air-tight container and freeze until ready to eat. (To serve from frozen: microwave for 20-30 seconds or until warm.)

I've had muffins with All Bran cereal in them before and I thought they were pretty tasty, but these definitely blew any other All Bran filled muffin out of the water. The chocolate milk makes these seem so much more decadent and unhealthy than they really are. And by sprinkling the tops with mini chocolate chips, they don't get lost in the muffin. Plus, there is the visual aspect, that if you're eating something sprinkled with chocolate, it must not be healthy. But it is!
