Low Fat Chocolate Muffins

I found this recipe on a lovely site called I Love Muffins.  Which has become my new favorite recipe site.   Because, really, I love muffins.  Okay. This is not my favorite muffin recipe, but if you are needing some chocolate but are counting calories, this should do it.   


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup vanilla lowfat yogurt
2/3 cup nonfat milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar for garnish (optional)


Preheat oven to 400° F. Line 12 - 14 muffin cups with paper liners.
Stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Stir in the yogurt, milk and vanilla, mixing just until combined. Do not overmix. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool slightly in pan on wire rack. Remove from pans. Sprinkle powdered sugar over tops of muffins, if desired. Serve warm. Store, covered, at room temperature or freeze in airtight container for longer storage. Makes 14 muffins.
