Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Muffins

Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Muffins

Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Muffins Mosaic

As I went through the recipe again and again, I noticed there isn't any addition of chocolate chips in there despite the title of the muffin. Hence, I adapted the recipe, adding this and removing that. The texture is little dense but since they're muffin, I guess that was how they were supposed to be like. For myself, I prefer cupcakes' texture as they're lighter and fluffier, nevertheless, these muffins were well received by the recipients or maybe they were polite?

Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Muffins

For muffins:
300g plain flour
25g caster sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 lightly beaten eggs
115 ml sunflower oil
175 ml low fat milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 handfuls of chocolate chips

For icing:
2 tbsp margerine, softened
175g icing sugar, sieved
30g cocoa powder
4 tbsp low fat milk
A handful of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 175C. Grease 12-cup muffin tin. In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and cocoa with a spoon. In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, milk and vanilla with electric whisk (I used manual which worked as well) and beat till combined. Add flour mixture and stir till just combined before adding chocolate chips. Do not overmix. Spoon batter into prepared tin. Bake for 20 mins. Remove tin from oven and cool for 5 mins. Then remove muffins and cool on a rack.

In actual fact, I've used the small muffin paper cups which yielded 18-20 muffins (sorry can't recall). They looked terribly cute in them!

For icing, combine all ingredients except milk. Add the milk slowly, beating with electric whisk to make a firm but spreadable mixture. Add in chocolate chips. Spoon the icing onto the cooled muffins.

i see why they are low fat... cocoa powder instead of melted chocolate! smart!!! maybe that's why they are denser? Anyhow, I will be the first to grab one!

L'abeille said...

Manggy said...

Hmm, there's 115mL oil though, that's the weight equivalent of half a stick of butter.. But who cares, it looks great, and you can always jog the calories away!

fatboybakes said...

HAHAH, low fat...i wont be too sure about that, coz really, the only ingredient that differs from normal muffins is the low FAT milk.

as for margarine, people, margarine is even more unhealthy than butter. go read the loads of lit on the transfat issue. at least butter's more natural.

Grimmie said...

wow.. super duper yummy looking.. i m suppose to stay away from sugar le.. this is NOT helping :P kakakkaa

Babe_KL said...

lol FBB, I used Vitalite margarine, must go back and check if got transfat or not.

Babe_KL said...

bumblebee, yes it was certainly 25g, perhaps you need to check your technique. did you over beat the batter? perhaps you can describe to me what to you mean by horrible and see how i can help you.
