Brown and White Muffins

Muffins solve a whole lot of problems for me! They're quick, they're sweet, and I can make quite a few in a short amount of time :-)
They are very good for breakfast but I LOVE to have them around for snacks. I can pack them with all sorts of things, like fruit and nuts, or just make them fun- like these!
(And shhh- if you'll notice- there's no oil! Nice chewy texture as a result.)

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1 cup cane sugar (or white)
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups kefir, buttermilk, or yogurt
1 cup white baking chips

Preheat oven to 400. Spray muffin tins with non-stick.
Mix flour, salt, baking soda, cocoa, and sugar. Blend in vanilla, eggs, and kefir (or other).
Fold in the chips right before pouring into muffin tins.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes being careful no to over bake.
**For best results, bake in cupcake papers. The white chips sometimes sink and stick to dark metal pans.

I had to try these! I made them this morning (with regular chocolate chips as I didn't have white) and they are soooo good. My boys love them! Thanks for sharing.
