When it comes to breakfast food, some of us are real champions. We know what we want — something hearty, something sweet, something that will stick with us for a while. Cue the chocolate muffins.

Chocolate muffins are some of the most delicious options you can make for your family at breakfast. Most recipes take less than 45 minutes to make, including baking and cooling time.

Our Three Favorite Chocolate Muffin Recipes

Recipe 1 — Double Chocolate Muffins

Why have single chocolate muffins when you can go ahead and double the dose? If you’re not into adding nuts or fruit, this recipe is perfect for meeting your cravings.

Ingredients to Use:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated or raw sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease or line your muffin pans.
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cocoa, sugar, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the milk and melted butter.
  • Now, add the oil in and mix.
  • Next, whisk in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Add the dry ingredient into the bowl with the wet ingredients, and mix together for about 10 seconds only. The batter should be lumpy.
  • Carefully fold one cup of chocolate chips into the mix with a rubber spatula.
  • Now, put the mix into the muffin cups.
  • Top the muffin batter with the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Finally, bake muffins for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let the muffins cool in the pan for five minutes, then remove and let cool for another five before serving.

Recipe 3 — Vegan Chocolate Muffins

Since muffins aren’t innately healthy, we did have to include at least one recipe that’s not quite so bad for you. The Healthy Vegan Chocolate Muffin is a great alternative. Each muffin is about 120 calories, which isn’t too bad for a muffin, really, especially considering that we’re talking chocolate here.
