Chocolate Muffins in a Rush (Dairy-free, Egg-free, Peanut-free}

I've been gone for a few days celebrating Easter with family out of state, so I haven't posted in almost a week! The Whoopie Pies were a success for my youngest daughter's 3rd birthday party. You would never know they were allergy-free. The cousins loved them! Saturday morning, I was at my sister's house and she was making muffins for breakfast, so I decided to go ahead and whip up some muffins for my allergy girl, too. You can ask my 12 yr old niece how proud I was of myself for doing such a good job...she heard me exclaim several times, "These are great! I can't believe how good these turned out!" My sister doesn't have anyone in her family with food allergies, but you can make these delicious muffins from anyone's pantry! No weird ingredients - all normal, everyday items.

Chocolate Muffins in a Rush {Dairy-, Egg-, & Peanut-Free}

1 1/2 cups self-rising flour

1 cup oats

1/3 cup sugar

1T cornstarch {this replaces the egg}

1/2 cup pure cocoa powder

1 cup almond milk {plain for less sugar content}

1/2 cup applesauce {I used a snack sized cinnamon flavored because that's what my sister had}

1/4 cup canola oil

Mix dry ingredients together in mixing bowl. Mix liquid ingredients {including applesauce} in a small bowl and then add them to the dry ingredients. Mix until moist. Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full and bake @ 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Serve warm with Smart Balance Light {dairy-free buttery spread}. Makes 12 muffins. 1/2 the recipe to make just a small batch of 6. They turned out perfect!
