Applesauce adds moisture and replaces fat in these rich-tasting chocolate cupcakes. Double the recipe and freeze the extras.
Preheat oven to 350F (175C).
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In another bowl, combine applesauce, egg whites, oil and vanilla; beat until blended. Add flour mixture to applesauce mixture and stir just until evenly moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon the batter into 12 paper-lined muffin tins.
Bake for approximately 25 minutes until centers spring back when lightly pressed. Cool cupcakes on a rack.
