Healthy Chocolate Muffins For Toddlers

One slow afternoon my son and I decided to bake muffins as an activity. I searched through our pantry and gathered a few ingredients I thought would make a chocolate muffin for my son. Since his next snack was coming up I wanted the muffins to also contain a good amount of protein. What resulted was the recipe I will share here today.

These are yummy and healthy chocolate muffins for toddlers and adults alike. Once I tried the first one, I immediately brought out my phone and noted all the ingredinets that went in.

We have made these chocolate muffins many times ever since and they are one of my toddlers’ favorites.

WHAT GOES INTO THESE EASY AND HEALTHY CHOCOLATE MUFFINS?

Whole wheat flour: Instead of white flour I went with whole wheat flour to pack in maximum nutrition and a good amount of fiber. Whole wheat flour also helps in the slow release of sugar which makes the muffin a filling breakfast or snack option.

Peanut Butter: Peanut butter adds protein to the recipe and a rich flavor that makes this chocolate muffin extra yummy.

Egg: Helps make the batter a little less dense and also adds good fats and protein for longer satiety.

Cocoa Powder: For a rich chocolatey flavor that is a big hit with children and adults.

Jaggery: Substitute to white sugar that adds some more nutrition to the recipe. 

Here are the brands I use for baking muffins like these. All of these give consistent results when baking and are made using high quality naturally processed ingredients.

SUBSTITUTIONS TO THE HEALTHY CHOCOLATE MUFFIN RECIPE

Egg replacement for vegetarian muffins :

You can replace the egg with a flax egg or yogurt.

To make the flax egg you need, 2 tbsp of ground flax seed powder kept in a bowl with 5 tbsp of water. Let this mixture sit for 20 minutes until the flaxseed powder absorbs water and swells up.

If you are substituting the egg with yogurt you need about ½ cup yogurt for the recipe

Jaggery replacement :

Instead of jaggery you can also use brown sugar, coconut sugar or regular white sugar depending on your preference.

Do try these healthy chocolate muffins for your toddlers and tell me how they like it.
