Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
4SP/3PP each
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp liquid egg whites (I use from the carton)
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1¼ cup flour
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 4 oreo thin cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a regular sized muffin tin with some non stick spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk together your egg, egg whites and sugar. You can remove the cream centers from your oreo cookies and add them into the mix, cream well to blend up the icing. Set oreo cookie wafers aside for now.
  3. Stir in your apple sauce, milk and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Add in your flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda and stir.
  5. Fold in your chocolate chips, fill muffin cups with batter.
  6. Use a small zip lock bag and crush up your oreo wafers into crumbs, sprinkle over tops of muffins.
  7. Bake in oven for 20 minutes, let cool and serve. Makes 12 muffins at 4 smart points each (3 PP, old WW program)

    I see cocoa powder listed but don’t see it in the steps. When does it get added?

    Hello Kate

    Your recipes are awesome, I just discovered them recently! Do you think they would still turn out if I just skipped the oreo cookies? I was going to, until I read the instructions and you say to put the cream filling into the batter. Might seem like a weird question, but I have all the other ingredients and don’t trust myself to have a bag or Oreos in the house.

      Hi Diane, no you can still make them, they should be ok, I just put the creams in in order to not waste them lol and add a little sweetness to the batter

        Thank you very much, Kate! I am going to try them today then. I have some chocolate graham wafer crumbs in the house, so will try that instead of the crushed cookies.

        You have a wonderful website and I really like your approach to cooking. If you ever publish a print cookbook, I’ll definitely buy it!

        Cheers from Ontario.

    Hi Kate

    It sounds like a great muffin except for the eggs & egg whites – suggestions for substitutions, other than adding more applesauce?

      Hi Carrie, hmm egg is a hard one to substitute, yeah I would just say a little more apple sauce is your best option

        You can use a “flax egg” I do in any baking as an egg substitute. 1 tbsp of Ground Flax with 2.5 tbsp water for each egg needed.
