Muffins using only wholemeal flour (with raisins and chocolate)

Yes, I truly believe this could be declared the healthiest and lightest still good-tasting dessert out there. Also it somehow magically transcends the problem that other desserts or breads seem to encounter when being made only with wholemeal flour (without combining it with regular white flour in equal parts), which is not being fluffy or delicious enough to qualify as a successful bake. 
Nope, no worries there: these muffins are actually fluffy and delicious although there's no trace of white flour in them. Truly amazing, I'm telling you. :)
The sweet(er) note comes from raisins and some dark chocolate (just a cube per muffin). They truly are the lightest, most nutritious and healthiest muffins in the world without losing the delicious attribute. Bon apetit!

Last year: Mimosa (cocktail).
Two years ago: Baby making and no cooking :).

Ingredients (for 12):
  • 250 g wholemeal wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 75 g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 125 ml milk
  • 125 ml yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower or grapeseed oil
  • 130 g raisins
  • 12 dark chocolate squares

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Mix the flour with the salt, baking powder and sugar. Beat the egg with the milk and yogurt and also add the oil. Mix the liquid stuff with the dry stuff with a spoon until even. Add the raisins:

Mix well and pour into a paper-lined muffin pan with 12 holes. Gently push a chocolate square into each and bake for 20 minutes. Take out and allow to cool for 12 minutes:

Transfer to a serving platter and dig in! (the first ones - still warm and with the chocolate melted - are the best!) :)
