I have been working hard in the Fit and Frugal Mommy kitchen to create a muffin that is both fluffy and low calorie. After a few muffin fails, I’ve finally done it. I’ve create the 99 calorie double chocolate greek yogurt muffin. It’s light, it’s decadent, it’s guilt-free.
Short on time? Pin it for later.
I have a little bit of a sweet tooth (ok, a lot of a sweet tooth) and these muffins are just the treat I need to keep me on track and satisfied. I use a naturally unsweetened cocoa powder for these muffins, and I currently love this one. Would you believe there is no added refined sugar to these muffins? They’re naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and unsweetened apple sauce.
Now before you throw all the shade at me for luring you here on false pretenses, these muffins absolutely deliver, refined sugar free. To be honest, I’ve never been so excited about a muffin in my life. Never would I have believed you could have a double chocolate 99 calorie muffin, unless it was a mini muffin. After this win, I’m excited to see what other greek yogurt muffins I’ll be creating soon!

The 99 Calorie Double Chocolate Greek Yogurt Muffin
A decadent, double chocolate greek yogurt muffin for only 99 calories.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder to a bowl. Mix together.
Add the greek yogurt, egg whites, maple syrup, vanilla and apple sauce to the dry ingredients. Mix well until smooth.
Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
Bake for 15 minutes. Makes 9 full-sized muffins.
While these muffins are satisfying and sweet enough for me, if this is your first naturally sweetened muffin, I would suggest increasing the maple syrup to 3 tbsp. This will change the calorie count but is a good place to start!
