Fluffy Chocolate Muffins

Fluffy, tender, and just sweet enough, these easy Chocolate Muffins are a favorite breakfast and snack to share with the kids.

Ingredients:  – Whole-milk yogurt – Eggs – Vanilla extract – Maple syrup – Milk – Unsalted butter


– All-purpose flour – Cocoa powder – Baking powder – Baking soda – Chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the yogurt, maple syrup, eggs, butter, and vanilla.


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup standard muffin pan with nonstick spray. Gently stir or whisk together the batter.


Divide batter among the prepared muffin tin, using a heaping ¼ cup batter in each cup. Bake for 14-16 minutes.


They are done when the edges are lightly golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out cleanly.


Remove from oven, then transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool fully. Once cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature.


Feel free to replace the chocolate chips with diced berries or other fruit, or to increase the amount of chocolate chips to 1 cup. Up to you!
