Healthy Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

 Another snow day for us in Wi!  I am so thankful that I have all of my baking ingredients and my two toddler helpers to keep me busy while we are trapped inside!  We made these low fat muffins at 7 this morning, and I hope we have some left by the time Dan gets home from work.   Enjoy! 

Healthy Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins  - Yields 8 - Recipe adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction

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

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside. 

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

In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and applesauce until together until no brown sugar lumps remain.  Add the beaten egg white until fully incorporated.  

Add the wet ingredients to the dry until just combined – Fold in the strawberries and chocolate chips.

Divide the batter evenly between 8 muffin tins.  Bake for 15-20 minutes. Allow muffins to cool and enjoy!
