Before you start to make this recipe, measure and prepare your ingredients so the cooking process will go smoothly and easily.
Flour– we used all-purpose flour for this recipe, self-rising flour, and cake flour will work great as well.
Baking powder and baking soda – to allow the muffins to rise.
Buttermilk- we make our homemade buttermilk (1 cup of milk plus 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar).
Greek yogurt- get your Greek yogurt to room temperature. Any percent of fat will work for this recipe.
Dutch cocoa powder– we like to use Dutch-process cocoa powder for our muffins because we like the deep and rich chocolate taste, but the natural cocoa powder will work great as well!
Sugar- we used granulated sugar for this recipe. You can use caster sugar as well.
Eggs- you will need 2 large eggs for this recipe. Make sure that your eggs are at room temperature.
Vanilla extract- adds extra flavor.
Kosher salt- you will need about ½ teaspoon of kosher salt for this recipe.
Dark chocolate- use the best quality dark chocolate for the best flavor. You will need dark chocolate for the add-ins.
Chocolate chips- you can use any kind of chocolate chips for this banana bread, we like to use either dark chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, or semisweet chocolate chips.
Preheat an oven to 180c (350f) and prep a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.
Add the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks. Lightly fold the mixture until it’s just combined.
Scoop the batter with a large ice cream scooper into the muffin tins, top with more chocolate chips, and bake in a 180c (350f) preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Don’t overbake these muffins! Let the muffins cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
- Use room temperature ingredients. It is important that you use room-temperature ingredients like eggs and yogurt. This step ensures that your mixture mixes into a homogenous mixture and bakes perfectly. you don’t want to place cold batter into the oven.
- Don’t overmix the batter, you don’t want to develop the gluten in the flour. This step ensures you have moist muffins and not dense and dry muffins.
- Make sure that you are using fresh ingredients! One of the most common mistakes in baking and making muffins is not noticing that your baking powder or baking soda is expired. This can ruin your muffins and waste your time and money on the ingredients. So every time you bake anything, make sure that the ingredients are not expired.
- Mesure you flour correctly! When measuring your flour, avoid scooping it with a measuring cup. Instead, stir the flour with a spoon to create as many air pockets as possible, and spoon it into your measuring cup. Finally, level it with a back of a knife.
- Add some of your favorite add-ins! Make this recipe your own and add your favorite muffins add-ins: white chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, chocolate chunks, banana slices, chopped fruit, and more! Be creative!
- Be patient! I know it’s extremely tempting to eat these muffins as it is pulled out of the oven, but let them cool for at least 20 minutes so it will be more firm and won’t crumble up. These chocolate muffins are extra moist and melt in your mouth delicious, so it will be worth it to wait these 20 minutes.
These muffins will last for up to 4 days stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
These muffins use a lot of chocolate, which makes this decadent and irresistible. We highly recommend using the best quality chocolate bars and chocolate chips that you can find and afford.
We used high-quality semisweet chocolate, but you can use dark chocolate for an extra rich flavor.
Yes! Chocolate muffins taste great with chopped toasted walnuts or pecans. You can add any of your favorite add-ins.
It’s okay to store these muffins at room temperature. Make sure that you store the muffins in an airtight container so they won’t dry out.
Freeze these muffins after they cooled completely in an airtight freezer-friendly container for up to 3 months, some people find the muffins taste better after freezing them.
To thaw, place them in the fridge overnight or at room temperature for a few hours. Reheat them in the microwave or in the toaster oven.
