1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to the specified temperature (usually around 350°F or 175°C). Line a mini muffin tin with paper liners to prepare for the baking process.
Mix Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, and salt. This creates the dry base for your Brownie Muffin Bites.
Add Wet Ingredients: Incorporate the unsweetened applesauce, unsweetened almond milk, and vanilla extract into the dry mixture. Stir until well combined, ensuring a smooth batter.
Fold in Chocolate Chips (Optional): For an extra burst of chocolate flavor, fold in mini chocolate chips into the batter. This step is optional but adds a delightful touch.
Fill Muffin Cups: Spoon the batter into the mini muffin cups, filling each cup nearly to the top. These bite-sized portions ensure a satisfying treat while keeping the points per muffin at a minimal 1 point.
Bake Until Set: Bake the Brownie Muffin Bites in the preheated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs. Be cautious not to overbake to maintain a fudgy texture.
Cool and Enjoy: Allow the muffin bites to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, these delightful Brownie Muffin Bites are ready to be enjoyed.
