These Healthier Chocolate Raspberry Muffins are a quick snack or grab and go breakfast, featuring less fat and sugar than most muffins.
Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl, stir together applesauce, sugar, vanilla, and melted butter until combined. Add raspberries and fold in.
Stir in remaining (dry) ingredients until well combined. Raspberries will get crushed - that's ok!
Portion into prepared muffin tin. Muffin cups will be quite full.
Make for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in tin for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from tin and set on a wire rack to cool completely.
