Healthified Chocolate Cupcakes

So I have never been one for making desserts low calorie, I just have not figured out the trick but these babies are pretty close as far as cupcakes go. They have applesauce in them, does that count? :-)
One word though, generously grease the cupcake liners if you use them, they cupcakes tend to stick the paper. Found that one out the hard way. :)


Chocolate Cupcakes
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
3/4 c sugar
1/4 unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c unsweetened applesauce (I used just a little bit less)
1/2 c milk
1/2 c egg whites or the whites of 4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350
Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Mix wet ingredients in a smaller bowl.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir to combine.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
