Sugar free muffins

These chocolate muffins are made with no oil, butter, flour or sugar!

I'm addicted to Vitatops which are 100 calorie muffin tops! They are found frozen in your grocery store because they have no preservatives. They retail for $5.50 for a box of just four muffin tops. I've tried them all and they're not created equal, I only like the chocolate and carrot cake flavors. The chocolate also comes in a sugar free version that is only available online. I searched through a few copycat recipes online and loved the one from the Dashing Dish. My muffins came out to 129 calories each, and that was because it's a whole muffin, not just a top since I don't have a whoopie pie pan. I do think these would taste better as just a muffin top because the chocolate chips are mostly on the top of the muffin so the top ends up being the best part. 

I used Hershey's Sugar Free Semi-Sweet Baking Chips which are made with Maltitol and taste just like regular chocolate chips! These muffins had a  lighter taste than a regular full fat/sugar muffin, but still good nonetheless! They only have 1 gram of sugar which comes from the natural sugar in apples. Instead of oatmeal I used Arrowhead Mills Organic Oat Flour which is just oatmeal grounded in a blender. I also use it to make protein bars. I used zsweet as my sweetener.
