Ingredients

Wet Ingredients
1/2 cup Apple Sauce
1/4 Honey
1/3 cup Pure Cane Sugar
3/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Egg
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract/Paste
1 shot (optional) Espresso/Coffee
Dry Ingredients
1/2 cup All-Purpose, Unbleached Flour
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 cup Dark/Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Double Chocolate Muffins

  • Serves 6
  • Medium

Directions

I remember looking at a dessert menu at a restaurant once with my dad and sister and reading ‘Death by Chocolate.’ “That,” my Dad said “we need to order. Death by chocolate is how I want to die!” I was probably 12 at the time so I did not quite understand the humor there.

But now, death by chocolate is what I think about when I make and eat these muffins. So rich, so full of chocolate, so good!

Oh and brownie points – no butter or oils are used to make these muffins! I also snuck in some whole-wheat flour though this is optional!

Steps

1
Done

Preheat Oven to 350F

First, preheat your oven, then get all of the ingredients on the counter as well as all tools. Your standing mixer or a big bowl and hand-held mixer. Measuring cups and spoons, a whisk and a spatula.

2
Done

Mix The Wet Ingredients

Into the bowl, add the apple sauce, greek yogurt, honey, and sugar. Mix on medium speed until combined. Next, add the egg, vanilla, and espresso/coffee. The espresso/coffee will enhance the chocolate flavor but this is completely optional. With a spatula, scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to make sure everything is well mixed. Mix until the ingredients are well incorporated.

3
Done

Mix The Dry Ingredients

In another bowl, sift together the flours, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda then mix with a whisk. You want to sift them so there are no lumps or coarse pieces in the batter.

If you only have A/P flour you can omit the whole-wheat and use 1 full cup of A/P flour.

4
Done

Add Dry To Wet

Add the dry ingredients in two batches to the wet and mix on low until almost all of the flour has mixed in.

With a spatula, scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl to make sure all of the ingredients are well incorporated.

Lastly, add the chocolate chips and fold in with the spatula.

5
Done

Scoop & Bake

Place the cupcake liners into the cupcake tin then spoon the batter into the cupcake liners evenly. Fill them all the way to the top! The muffins will rise while baking and form muffin tops!

Sprinkle another couple of chocolate chips over each muffin then bake at 350F for 25-35minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow the muffins to cool slightly...but not for too long because these muffins tastes best warm in my opinion. Store in an air-tight container for up to 5 days. I recommend heating up the muffin for 20 seconds in the microwave for the best chocolate flavor, plus all those chocolate chips will melt again!
