Caramel Delight Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Hi Luvs,

I want to apologize first and foremost for letting my busy schedule get the best of me and ignoring this blog that I have come to cherish for many weeks now. Being in southern California these last few months has been amazing; considering this is my first year not trudging through a midwest winter, though the change in my full time job (geologist) has come with more responsibilities.

I'm still making time for workouts and healthy eating, even when I'm traveling quite a bit. I plan to hold myself accountable to posting about once a week for the time being. It will be much easier to be consistent sharing with you lovelies if I'm not putting pressure on myself to have 5 blog posts a week, even when I'm on the road. Here is a recipe makeover based on this Food Network Kitchen's chocolate chip muffin recipe. I used a few Caramel Delight Girl Scout Cookies (my favorite!) in the muffins, hence their name.

Everything but the cookies is wholesome, there is no butter since applesauce is a good substitute, and the muffins still come out gooey and delicious as long as you are careful not to overcook them. I didn't use sugar or oil here, and they are also dairy free if you use almond/coconut/soy/rice milk etc.... They are a delicious, yet sensible treat if you're like me and have a love for chocolate chip pancakes, muffins, cookies etc.

You will need a muffin tin for 12 muffins, plus paper muffin cups.

3/4 cups flour (I used about 1/2 cup whole wheat and 1/4 cup all purpose)
1/2 cup Cellucor Peanut Butter Marshmallow whey protein powder available here
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch salt
2 large eggs
1 individual package unsweetened applesauce (roughly 1/2 cup)
1/3 truvia brand stevia
3/4 cup almond milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 oz chocolate, chopped
2 Caramel Delight Girl Scout cookies, chopped into 1/4" sized pieces


I baked these at 350 F for 8-10 minutes.
