  • The perfect choice for any occasion, whether it’s a special treat or a simple indulgence.

Key Ingredients and Substitutions

  • All-purpose flour: For this double chocolate muffin recipe I used all-purpose flour, which helps to thicken the batter and provide structure to the muffins. It can be substituted with a gluten-free flour blend or almond flour for a gluten-free option.
  • Granulated sugar: I used granulated sugar as my sweetener of choice for these muffins, it provides a nice balance of sweetness to these muffins. If you prefer to use another sweetener, you can substitute it with brown sugar, or coconut sugar. If you want to make sugar-free double chocolate muffins you can replace the sugar with equal amounts of granulated sweeteners such as Monk sugar, allulose, or erythritol.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder: I used unsweetened cocoa powder which is less bitter and has a little acidity. If you don’t have this type of cocoa powder can substitute it with dutch-process cocoa powder, which is less acidic, or carob powder for a caffeine-free option.
  • Baking powder and baking soda: These are leavening agents that help the muffins rise. They can be substituted in equal amounts.
  • Salt: Enhances the flavor of the muffins, it can be substituted with other types of salt, such as sea salt or Himalayan salt.
  • Buttermilk: I love buttermilk, it adds moisture and a tangy flavor to the muffins. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand you can replace it with sour cream, yogurt, or milk mixed with lemon juice or vinegar, worst case scenario, it can be substituted with milk or any type of oat or nut milk.
  • Vegetable oil: The veggie oil adds moisture to the muffins, if you want to use a different oil you can substitute it with avocado oil, coconut oil, olive oil, corn oil, or melted margarine or butter.
  • Eggs: The addition of eggs in this recipe provides structure and richness to these chocolate muffins. They can be substituted with chia egg or flax eggs which can be prepared by mixing 1 tablespoon of flax meal or chia with 3 tablespoons or with 3 tablespoons of aquafaba for each 1 large egg that will be replaced. Other egg replacement options for this recipe are 2 tablespoons arrowroot flour mixed with 3 tablespoons water or 1/4 cup of applesauce for each large egg that needs to be substituted.
  • Vanilla extract: This is my go-to ingredient to help enhances the flavor of muffins. It can be substituted with other types of extract, such as almond or hazelnut just encase you don’t have any.
  • Semisweet chocolate chips: These chocolate chips are my favorite choice for chocolate muffins, it enriches the muffins with an extra chocolatey touch of love, providing rich and decadent chocolate flavor. If you are out of semisweet chocolate chips can substitute them with essentially any different types of chocolate such as dark chocolate chips or chunks for a more intense chocolate flavor or white chocolate chips for a sweeter and creamier option, or you can also chop up some chocolate bars to add a different texture.

Good To Know: Tips and Tricks

Use good quality cocoa powder: The quality of the cocoa powder can greatly differentiate the overall flavor of these double chocolate chip muffins. Look for a brand that is high in cocoa butter, it will give your muffins a deeper and richer chocolate flavor.

Don’t overmix the batter: Less is more, be careful not to overmix the muffin batter, as it will result in a dense and tough muffin. Mix the ingredients until just combined to ensure a fluffy and moist texture.

Use room temperature ingredients: I can’t stress this enough, room temperature ingredients will mix together more easily and evenly. Take the eggs and buttermilk out of the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before you start making the muffins.

Fill the muffin cups 2/3 of the way: If you overfill the muffin cup the batter will overflow during the baking, fill the muffins only 2/3 high in the muffin tin, this will ensure your muffin rises with a nice dome shape.

Cool the muffins completely before storing: Always Cool the muffins completely before storing them, this step will avoid any condensation buildup and prevent the muffins from becoming soggy. Once the muffins are cool to the touch, transfer them to an airtight container and store them at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
