Double Chocolate Muffins (Ok fine, they’re cupcakes without frosting…)

February 22, 2021 || By: Hope F

My mom and I love the quote, “once you lick the icing off a cupcake, it becomes a muffin, muffins are healthy.” This muffin is totally that except not very healthy!. I made it because I wanted something chocolate, and when I had a bite I thought – “guess I have a new cupcake recipe!” These are very good and very tender since they have some plain Greek yogurt in them, and above all – they are delicious! They may be a little over-the-top chocolatey, so you will probably want an ice cold glass of milk with them. This recipe is adapted from wholesomepatisserie.

Recipe: Prep Time – 15 minutes (unless you are chopping the chocolate yourself, then it would be 25 minutes), Cook Time – 20 minutes


  • 1 stick Butter, slightly melted
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 3/4 cup Milk (you can use any kind of milk- diary, almond, oat milk)
  • 170g Milk Chocolate, chopped (to go into batter)
  • 30g Milk Chocolate, chopped (to top the batter)

How to make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 360° F and line a muffin pan with muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter with a hand mixer for a few seconds. Then add in the sugar and beat on high speed until well combined.
  3. Next, mix in the eggs, yogurt, and vanilla, and mix until well combined.
  4. Add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and the pinch of salt, mixing until it’s all just combined.
  5. Pour in the milk and mix until just combined as well.
  6. Fold in the 170g of chocolate.
  7. Scoop out the batter and fill evenly among the liners, fill them below the edge (they rise a lot).
  8. Sprinkle the 30g of chocolate on the top.
  9. Bake the muffins for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Let them cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
