Eating Healthy can be costly to your pocket book. I have a monthly budget for our groceries each month. But with the holidays, I went over! Yicks! So for January.. I need to cut back and get it under control.
I like to plan a menu out for each month, it helps me stay within my budget. As I was planning January’s menu, I ran across this recipe for Chocolate muffins on the THM facebook group. This recipe has everything a frugal mom (working on a smaller budget) wants. Thank you Melissa for letting me share this recipe!
Chocolate Muffins – E Style
1 3/4 c oats
3 egg whites or 1/4 cup of egg whites from the carton
3/4 c unsweetened cocoa
1/2 c unsweetened applesauce
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 c plain Greek yogurt
1/2 t cream of tartar
1 1/2 t baking powder
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 c hot water
1 c erythritol
2 servings of Kal Stevia (optional.. its for added sweetness)
Pour your oats into a blender and blend until it’s a powder. Now you have oat flour. Remove from blender into a bowel and add the remaining ingredients.. or if your like me just add the rest of the ingredients to your blender and blend until combined. Place in lined muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes are until done.
*I was able to make a dozen and a half.*
These are very moist muffins. They are so yummy you can serve them for dessert after an E dinner!
