Double Chocolate Strawberry Muffins


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar (used maple syrup)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup grape seed or other unflavored oil (used canola oil)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup diced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks


Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Line a standard size 12 cup muffin tin with paper or foil liners. In a medium size bowl, sift together all purpose flour, whole wheat pastry flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, mix agave nectar, brown sugar, canola oil, and apple sauce. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until combined. Carefully fold in strawberries and chocolate chips. Divide muffin batter evenly among the 12 cups. Bake for 20 minutes or until muffins are done. Remove from oven and let cool on rack for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and let cool completely on rack before serving. IMG_5942_edited-1

oh these look good. My son talked me into yogurt this evening and I ended up with some strawberry white chocolate mixture which was divine. (truthfully, he didn't have to push too hard - I love soft-served yogurt).
