Chocolate Cupcakes...100 CALORIES!

Yes, you read that title right. I have an amazingly moist chocolate cupcake recipe for you all today. The best part is that these are right around 100 calories which is music to my ears. I don't count calories and never plan on it, however, it's so nice when you find a low calorie or healthier treat, especially when you have as big of a sweet tooth as I do.

SO go make these ASAP and then thank me!

100 Calorie Moist Chocolate Cupcakes via Can you Stay for Dinner?

makes 12
  • 1 cup nonfat or low fat milk, dairy or nondairy
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a standard 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners. Spritz them lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, stir together milk and vinegar. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, applesauce, and vanilla. Pour in the now curdled milk and mix all ingredients well.
Stir in dry ingredients until just combined. The batter will be thin and wet, similar to a runny pancake batter. Divide it evenly among the prepared muffin cups. Bake for about 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of one comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack before removing to cool completely.
***I choose not to ice these as I honestly loved them as is!
