Cocoa Applesauce-Raisin Muffins... heavenly
      01/15/06 10:26 AM

Cocoa Applesauce-Raisin Muffins
(Supposedly makes 15 muffins, but I got 11!!)

These muffins are fantastic! They have just the right amount of sweetness, the the chunks of apples and cherries (or raisins, of course) give them a wonderful texture. I used the full amount of oil, but with all that applesauce I'm sure you could lessen it to 1/4 cup, since there's slightly over 25% fat as is.

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour (can use more white flour if this is a problem for you)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup soy margarine, melted (I just used canola oil)
1 cup chunky applesauce (has to be chunky... the chunks give these an awesome texture)
1/4 cup soy or rice milk
1/4 cup Egg Beaters or 2 egg whites
3/4 cup raisins (I chose to use chopped dried cherries and they were fantastic!!)

Set oven to 400 degrees.
Spray the bottoms of the muffin cups with Pam or line with paper liners.
In a large bowl, stir together, the flours, brown sugar, baking cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. I sifted them together to destroy the lumps.
In a small bowl, stir together, melted margarine, applesauce, soy milk, and the egg until well blended.
Add to dry ingredients; stir with a wooden spoon JUST until dry ingredients are moistened.
Stir in raisins (or cherries).
Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full with the batter.
Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the muffins test done.
Remove from pans to wire racks.
Cool slightly.
