  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dried milk powder
  • 1 box (3.4 oz) Jello Cook and Serve Chocolate Pudding Mix
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup sugar substitute *
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 oz unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Combine flour, milk powder, Jello mix, cocoa, and sugar substitute in a medium bowl.

In a separate bowl, blend vanilla, applesauce and baking soda. Set aside.

In a clean bowl, beat egg whites and salt until stiff. Using an electric mixer, beat dry mixture into the egg whites. Add the applesauce mixture. Beat for an additional two minutes.

Divide into 12 muffin pans lined with baking paper. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes. Test by inserting a toothpick - if it comes out clean, the muffins are done. Cool or a few minutes then remove from pan.


* Can substitute equivalent amount of sugar for sugar substitute.

If desired, lightly dust baked cupcakes with icing or powdered sugar, or drizzle with Reducced-Fat Chocolate Glaze (see recipe link).
