Today we are making double chocolate muffins!
I just love chocolate. Honestly? I love most sweets, but probably my all time most favorite baked good would be something with chocolate in it. Feeling like I needed an extra dose of chocolate, I wanted to try my hand at making some chocolate muffins. Not just any muffins – DOUBLE Chocolate Muffins!
I am so pleased with how these muffins turned out. They are delicious, with yummy chocolatey goodness in every bite – and they are easy to make! You probably have all of the ingredients on hand to make these immediately, so why not make these double chocolate muffins today?
I used foil liners to bake these cupcakes in (got them for free with coupons), but I really love my silicone baking cups. They are a great to bake in, easy to clean up AND reusable.
Anyway, on to the recipe. Let’s satisfy that chocolate craving once and for all.
You have to try this easy double chocolate muffins recipe. They are delicious and perfect for a quick morning.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup oil
- (1) 12 ounce package chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix all dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
Mix all wet ingredients: buttermilk, eggs, vanilla and oil. **Note - I never buy buttermilk. To make you own, combine one tablespoon lemon juice and enough milk to make 1 cup. Let sit for a few minutes.
Combine wet and dry ingredients until well blended. Add in chocolate chips.
Use a large baking scoop to fill muffin cups nearly all the way to the top.
Bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean (I baked mine for 18 minutes and they were perfect).
This muffin recipe is delicious, with yummy chocolatey goodness in every bite – and they are easy to make!
These double chocolate muffins are really that easy to make! I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as we did. I’d love to hear what you think.
They freeze great!
The nice thing about these muffins is that they freeze great. Just place them (after they have cooled) into a freezer bag and freeze. When you are ready to eat, you can microwave for a few seconds for delicious warm muffins. I like to place my frozen muffins in the fridge the night before so they reheat much faster.
