2 and 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Generous grease a jumbo muffin pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the applesauce, sugar, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Pour this into the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until a few dry streaks remain. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Evenly distribute the batter into your prepared muffin pan, filling each well all the way to the top. Sprinkle on a layer of coarse sugar if desired.
Bake in your preheated oven for 5 minutes. Then turn down the oven to 375 degrees and bake for an additional 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow muffins to cool before serving.
Leftover muffins should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator and will keep for several days. They can also be frozen and thawed.Source: Barely adapted from House of Nash Eats
