Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Muffins

In our house we prefer hearty muffins and breakfast breads, we only eat cold cereal as a last resort which means I am always on the lookout for new muffin recipes. This recipe is made with whole wheat flour and oat bran so it contains a lot of fiber and the chocolate chips turn it from bland bran to yummy bites of mini muffin goodness!! Little Foodie went nuts over these, she ate them at breakfast and as an after school snack. I adapted this recipe from one found on Enjoy!

¾ cups Oats, Ground In Blender
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tablespoons Wheat Bran
½ cups Brown Sugar
¾ teaspoons Baking Soda
½ teaspoons Salt
1 cup Applesauce
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter/Margarine
1 whole Egg
¼ cups Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
½ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan or mini muffin pan with non-stick spray.

Sift together ground oats, wheat flour, wheat bran, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce, oil, egg, milk, and vanilla extract.

Add applesauce mixture to dry ingredients, stirring gently to combine. Fold in 1/2 to 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. Avoid over-mixing.

Distribute mixture evenly between cups. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
