Wheatgerm Cupcake with Chocochips

Here's my take to the most nutritious ingredient in baking and cooking.  A healthier version of the classic cupcake...

Wheat germ contains 23 nutrients (like potassium and riboflavin) and has more nutrients per ounce than any other grain or vegetable. It also has a high concentration of complex carbohydrates and protein which makes it the perfect ingredient for getting your day started right.

1 tsp vanilla
