Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins

Yep, healthy and chocolate. Two very wonderful things make an even better combination. These are so delicious you can hardly tell how good they are for you! :)  I got the idea here. No flour, no fat, and low calorie!!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins
1-3/4 cups oatmeal
1 Tbsp. flaxseed
3 egg whites
1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup Agave (or 3/4 cup sugar)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 muffin tins (12 muffins in each).
2. Put all of the ingredients in a blender (or food processor) - except for the chocolate chips, and blend until smooth. 
3. Fill muffin tins, each muffin about 3/4 full.
4. Bake muffins for 10 minutes.
5. After 10 minutes take the muffins out and place chocolate chips over top.
6. Put back in the oven for 2-5 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
