Low-Cal Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate muffins are one of my favorite things. When I was a kid and when we ever went to the grocery store, I would always ask my mom for some chocolate muffins to bring home and eat.

Most of the time she would say no and that we had enough treats in the cart. But there were those off times that she would say yes and I would run with excitement over to the bakery section and pick out the biggest, best chocolate muffins that I could find.

Now that I've grown up and have a child of my own, I know why my mom said no most of the time. I also know the value of taking care of my body a little better than when I was a kid.

Fortunately, recently I found a recipe for some amazingly low-calorie chocolate muffins that I just had to share with you. These muffins taste just like the full fat ones you would get from the grocery store, but are much lower and calories and sugar. So I don't feel so bad about eating an entire batch right out of the oven.

Oh wait… I still do. But maybe not as bad…??

  1. Been trying to improve the diet for the past few months! These look amazing, and I love the fact that they’re low calorie & they use stevia for sweetening. My bro is a huge chocolate fan too.. so I’ll have to make him try without telling them they’re the ‘healthier version!’


  2. Literally same!! We would beg for muffins from my mom at the grocery store. Or, at the deli on the way to church, my sister would get a huge chocolate muffin and I would get–wait for it–bacon on toast; that was it! Talk about unhealthy. (But it was sooo tasty.) Anyway, super duper craving one of these right now.

  3. I love a good chocolate muffin! My mom went through a period where she’d purchase the variety pack from Sam’s club and then cut the muffins in half and freeze them. The chocolate muffins were always first to go, then poppy seed! I love that you’ve made a lighter version 🙂
