My friend Hannah is obsessed with my healthier chocolate cake recipe. But here’s the kicker, she’s never had it.
I think she secretly wishes I would make that recipe every Wednesday and bring it to our bible study. But I don’t get the chance to re-make a lot of my own recipes when there are new recipes to be made!
So I decided to re-make the healthier chocolate cake recipe into a muffin recipe for our bible study cookie exchange.
Yes, I brought muffins to a cookie exchange.
But I was really killing 2 birds with one stone – I got a new recipe made and I didn’t have to spend extra time making something special for the exchange. That’s called working smarter folks!
The biggest draw about this recipe is that it’s healthier because there’s no granulated sugar, oil or butter!
I will point out the obvious – this recipe calls for chocolate chips, which aren’t free from refined sugar. I’m okay with eating chocolate chips (this girl is a dessert blogger!). But you can choose to leave them out or use a healthier chocolate chip alternative like cocoa nibs.
Remember, these are healthier – I didn’t say they are the most healthy chocolate muffins on the planet ever and are zero calories.
But for a girl who uses a lot of butter, sugar and powdered sugar (think CAKE!) these healthier chocolate muffins really are healthier when compared to some of the other things I make!
I use my mini muffin pan all the time and actually prefer to make mini muffins over regular sized ones because my brain thinks I have more muffins that way.
I know it actually yields the same amount either way, but I like mini things. Especially mini things with chocolate :)
This recipe makes 24 mini muffins or 12 regular sized muffins. See the baking directions below.
Yield: 24 mini muffins or 12 regular muffins

These are the BEST healthier chocolate mini muffins with no granulated sugar, butter or oil in the recipe! Make healthier chocolate muffins with bananas, greek yogurt, and honey.
