I told you in my last money saving post that I have tried to eliminate boxed cereal from our home, mainly because of the expense. I have frozen homemade breakfast burritos and pancakes for another breakfast option.
I thought I’d add more variety to our frozen breakfast choices and this recipe looked like it fit the bill. I gave it shot and will be making it again here very soon!
Here’s what you need and how to do it:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 3/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 egg whites
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 3/4 cups skim milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cups chocolate chips ( I used semi-sweet)
In large bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and soda.
In separate bowl, whisk all wet ingredients together and then add to the dry ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips.
|I just had to show you what my kitchen looks like while I’m trying to bake. See my muffin makings way over in the corner? Every time I have to rinse my hands I have to walk through this gang and their stuff! I wouldn’t trade it for the world!!!|
Fill lined or greased muffin tins 3/4 of the way full. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 18-20 or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Cool and serve. Makes 32 muffins.
I doubled this recipe and then froze these for breakfasts.
They are a hearty, healthier muffin and all my kids LOVED them. They didn’t last long in this house!!
