I miss baking. 🙁 With my full time job I haven't had time experiment like I used to. So when the little guy asked to make muffins the other day I hit the pantry, used a mix and put my own spin on it to appease the "from scratch" gene my mom passed on.
We used another VitaMix from Vitalicious. This time the BlueBran. Alone it's good but not my favorite. It's super sweet with a very bran texture which is fine but I thought adding a little chocolate would make it even better. I'm happy to say I was right. 😉
The toddler and I have been snacking on these for a few days. The size is right, the cocoa powder balances the sweetness and the additional blueberries and chocolate chips give you a surprise in every bite.

Here's what little guy and I did...
- 3 egg whites
- 1 ¼ cup water
- 1 box of BlueBran VitaMix (Muffin Mix)
- 4 tbsp Dark Chocolate Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (20g)
- ½ cup frozen wild blueberries (70g)
- 2 tbsp mini chocolate chips (28g)
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Line a standard 12 cup muffin pan with baking cups.
Whisk together the egg white and water until frothy.
Add the Mix, cocoa powder, chips and blueberries to the egg whites and mix well.
Scoop about 3 tablespoons of batter into each baking cup.
Bake for 23-27 minutes until firm.
