Breakfast / Brunch
Sugar and spice (and orange and chocolate) unite with yogurt and applesauce for a nutrish-ish crave-worthy sweet treat. Relying on yogurt and applesauce instead of oil yields super-moist muffins that ring in at less than 200 calories — now that’s sweet.
Preheat oven to 400°. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper or foil liners; coat with nonstick spray.
Whisk together flour, granulated sugar, chocolate chips, cinnamon, chili powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Whisk together yogurt, eggs, applesauce, butter, vanilla, and zest; stir into dry ingredients.
Divide batter among muffin liners; sprinkle tops with turbinado sugar.
Bake muffins until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean, 15–20 minutes; serve warm.
