What I love about these little muffins is that they aren’t too sweet. Don’t get me wrong, they still have some sweetness to them, however,  they are not cake or cupcake like sweet. And when they come out of the oven, they are super moist, and just perfect for a special breakfast. These chocolate chocolate chip muffins are best served fresh out of the oven, as we did notice they tend to lose some of the moistness when they are eaten as leftovers a day or two later.

If you’re looking for an easy recipe for chocolate chip muffins, this definitely fits the bill. You don’t even need to get out your mixer. All you’ll need to make these from scratch is a couple of big bowls, and big wood spoon. Okay, it doesn’t have to be a wood spoon, but that’s what I use because it’s my favorite. Doesn’t everybody have a favorite kitchen utensil? ;)

I wouldn’t exactly call these healthy but serve some fresh fruit alongside them and it might help relieve any guilt you have over serving chocolate for breakfast (which I am never opposed to!) :).

    I love chocolate, these look SO delicious! I can’t wait to make them.

    These turned out really good :) Though a bit hard on the outside but moist on the inside, the chocolate flavor was perfect. I baked these for 20 min because my oven tends to take a touch longer, but thinking next time I’ll bake them for 18 since the outsides turned out a touch hard… Maybe that was the problem???

    • Perhaps – it could also make a difference whether you’re using dark or light colored muffin tins. If you’re using dark tins, you’ll want to reduce the baking time a bit!

      I had the same problem of them being hard on the outside. I cooked mine for 19 minutes so next time I’ll try 18. Flavor was good though

    I am going to love your chocolate chocolate chip muffins I love the dark choco. just like Otis spunkmires.

    • I ate my fair share of Otis Spunkmeyer muffins over the years and these do remind me of their Double Chocolate Chip Muffins!

    I love your idea of chocolate for breakfast! Brilliant!

    It’s so delicious! I want to bake this later.i only have chocolate bar. How much should I use to replace chocolate powder?

    • I’ve only ever made these using cocoa powder, so I really can’t comment on how you might use a chocolate bar in this recipe. So sorry!

  7. These look so good! I have made some similar to these, and love them!

  8. Cooker

    Is that really a tablespoon of baking powder? or should it be teaspoon?

  9. Cooker

    I followed this recipe exactly. They are very terrible. Blah! I will be tossing them all out. Too bad.

    • So sorry to hear that they didn’t turn out for you. I’ve made this recipe numerous times with great success, I’d be happy to troubleshoot to see if something might have gone wrong?

    I just made these today(actually baking as we speak). I didn’t have milk chocolate chips so I used semi sweet and they came out really good. I also had to use regular cocoa powder, but I will be on the look out for Dutch Process so I can try it again with that. Definitely will make again.

    • Thank you so much for the feedback Annie! Regular cocoa powder is always just fine to use, I like the result with the dutch process just a bit better.
