Healthy breakfast recipe of the day: strawberry chocolate chip muffin
Posted May 20 2010 7:00am
When I developed purely elizabeth muffin mixes I felt adamant about not adding dried blueberries or dried apples because I wanted the FRESHEST muffin possible that would BURST with seasonal flavor. A dried blueberry just didn't cut it.
..An unintentional benefit is that one has the ability to create their own flavor combinations
So with strawberries popping up all over the market, I got in the kitchen and created this strawberry chocolate chip muffin. Go ahead, give it a shot! It is the perfect weekend brunch item.
Ingredients: 1 purely elizabeth blueberry muffin mix 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 1/2 cup olive oil 1/2 cup pure maple syrup 1/4 cup palm sugar 3/4 cup chopped organic strawberries 1/2 cup vegan gluten free chocolate chips
Directions: Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl combine wet ingredients and stir. Pour in strawberries, chocolate chips and muffin mix. Mix to combine. Pour into greased mini muffin tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes. When the muffins are done, let stand and cool before taking out of the tins.
