Easy Double Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe made from scratch with cocoa powder and chocolate chips!
Talk about a chocolate lover’s dream, these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins are sure to please the chocolate lover in your life. Chocolate muffins are taken up a notch with the addition of chocolate chips mixed into the batter. Then, more chocolate chips are sprinkled on top right before they go into the oven. The result is the perfect combination of chocolate, and well…. more chocolate!
What I love about these little muffins is that they aren’t too sweet. Don’t get me wrong, they still have some sweetness to them, however, they are not cake or cupcake like sweet. And when they come out of the oven, they are super moist, and just perfect for a special breakfast. These chocolate chocolate chip muffins are best served fresh out of the oven, as we did notice they tend to lose some of the moistness when they are eaten as leftovers a day or two later.
If you’re looking for an easy recipe for chocolate chip muffins, this definitely fits the bill. You don’t even need to get out your mixer. All you’ll need to make these from scratch is a couple of big bowls, and big wood spoon. Okay, it doesn’t have to be a wood spoon, but that’s what I use because it’s my favorite. Doesn’t everybody have a favorite kitchen utensil? ;)
Just look at the chocolate oozing from these muffins. Yum!
I wouldn’t exactly call these healthy but serve some fresh fruit alongside them and it might help relieve any guilt you have over serving chocolate for breakfast (which I am never opposed to!) :).
