Recipe : Ultra Chocolate Muffins

Based on a recipe from Miserly Meals: Healthy, Tasty Recipes Under 75¢ per Serving.  I didn't have any chocolate chips so I increased the cocoa to 1/2 cup and they were very chocolatey, great for dessert sprinkled with icing sugar, almost like mini-cakes.  :)

Ultra Chocolate Muffins
Makes 12 regular muffins or 6 jumbo muffins

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 to 1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon vinegar
chocolate chips and/or nuts (optional but yummy)

In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients.  Add to the dry, and add chips/nuts.  Mix well until blended, but do not overmix.

Pour into greased or paper-lined muffin tins.  Bake at 375 degrees for 18 minutes (more for jumbo muffins).
