Craving chocolate but want to avoid the high saturated fat in most baked goods? Then this recipe is for you! I originally found the inspiration for this recipe here, but have adapted it a little to suit my tastes. These chocolate muffins use rolled oats as a base, so they are packed with heart-healthy fiber. Plus, instead of the usual oil or butter, these muffins use plain applesauce for moisture. This means that these muffins are pretty guilt-free… well, at least as guilt-free as muffins can be!
