Simple Chocolate Muffins

          We're on another muffin kick at our house so hang on because I've got several new recipes to share this week! We needed a snack while walking around Amsterdam and these guys did the trick. They have a nice chocolate flavor to them and although they weren't as moist as I would of liked,they were still delicious.

I went ahead and added in 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and vanilla. Each one contains 155 calories so you can indulge without feeling guilty :)

Chocolate Muffins

1-1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Sugar
1-1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
3/4 cup Milk..I used fat free
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
1 Large Egg,beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees or 200 celcius. Grease a 12 cup muffin or a 24 cup mini muffin tin.

In a medium bowl,sift flour,cocoa powder,sugar,baking powder and salt. 

In a large bowl,whisk together the milk,oil,and then the egg. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Cool for a few minutes on wire rack before removing and allowing to coole completely.
