adapted from The Low GI Cookbook


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder 1 1/2 cups applesauce
  • 1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. 
  2. Prepare a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick baking spray or paper liners. 
  3. Cream butter and sugar together until light in color, about 2 minutes. 
  4. Add eggs and cocoa powder; mix until smooth. 
  5. Fold in applesauce. 
  6. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix just until combined (don't over mix). 
  7. Fill cups about 3/4 full. 
  8. Bake 22-25 minutes or just until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a couple crumbs attached. 
  9. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan, placing on cooling rack to cool completely.

Note:  I think almond would be a nice flavor variation - I'll give it a try and report back soon..
