Well here’s your healthy answer: Healthy Chocolate Chunk Muffins! These muffins taste delicious and won’t cause you to ruin a day of healthy eating. Oh, and you make them by putting everything in a blender. Yup.

Gather all of the ingredients.

Place 1 3/4 cup oats, 3 egg whites, 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt {can use fat free}, 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup hot water and 1 cup Turbinado sugar {or whatever sugar substitute you prefer OR 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons Stevia} in either a blender or food processor.  Blend until oats are ground and mixture is smooth.
