Chocolate Chip Muffins for breakfast

After an invorgating morning jog with the dogs, I was craving a breakfast treat. After looking through my supplies, I decided on Chocolate Chip Muffins.

This particular recipe is low in sugar and contains no dairy or oil. So it's perfect for a chocolatey breakfast.

Chocolate Chip Breakfast Muffins

1 tablespoon ground flax seeds 
    3 tablespoons water
    2 cups light wheat flour
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon each of salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger
    3/4 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
    3/4 cup nondairy milk (I use almond milk, vanilla flavor)
    1/3 cup applesauce   

 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a mixing bowl, mix water and flax seeds. Set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, add flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, spices and chocolate chips. 

2. To the flax seed gel, add milk and applesauce. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture all at once. 

3. Stir just until combined and do not over-mix. Add batter into a muffin pan and fill the tins 2/3 full. 

4. Sprinkle a little sugar on top of all the muffins. Bake for about 15-20 minutes. 

They're super moist and yummy!
