  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 24-cup mini muffin pan with paper liners or grease well.

  2. Stir the cocoa with the all-purpose and whole-wheat flours, sugar, ground flax, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk the egg whites, yogurt, prunes and oil in a separate bowl. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture just until combined. Fold in 1/4 cup (50 mL) chocolate chips and chopped walnuts (if using).
