Healthy chocolate muffins
So I made these chocolate muffins that have basically no fat. They are made of flour, sugar, chocolate, egg whites, water, and prunes (there's also some baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla). I had never really eaten dried prunes before. They were okay plain, not particularly sweet, but had an interesting flavor that I could believe would go well with chocolate. The recipe was easy and the muffins turned out nice an moist. And....they tasted pretty darn good! I would definitely make them again - maybe even as a cake. You can taste the prunes in the muffins, but the chocolate also comes through strong, and, heck, it has fiber and healthy nutrients. Not bad. With a tall glass of milk and a little whipped cream, it's a great dessert.
