I love eating chocolate any time of day, but I’m a huge fan of having it for breakfast. The mere thought of eating chocolate for breakfast is enough to draw me out of my warm bed in the morning. Starting the day with chocolate just seems to set the day off on a good note.

Specifically, starting the day with these chocolate muffins isn’t just a glorious, chocolate experience, but also provides good nutrition to fuel you through your morning.

Now, keep in mind, I’m not talking about the kind of muffins loaded with sugar, trans fats and other inflammatory oils. These might taste good for a few minutes, but won’t provide what the body needs to feel great and fuel it through the morning. Instead, my chocolate muffins have loads of antioxidants from the cocoa and dark chocolate, trace minerals and fiber from the almond flour, and, if you use grass-fed butter, anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids. I can’t think of a better way to start the day.

These chocolate muffins are not only low-carb and full of good stuff, they taste great too! They have rich chocolate flavor from the cocoa powder in the batter. In addition to the cocoa powder, I stirred in chunks of dark chocolate to add delicious pockets of melted chocolate in the final product.

This recipe makes 12 muffins. If this is too many, feel free to cut the recipe in half. One thing I would like to point out, however, is that they keep great in the fridge or the freezer. This means that you can make them over the weekend, or whenever you have time, and enjoy them for breakfast all week. I love popping one in the oven to reheat while I get dressed in the morning. By the time I’m ready for my day, I have a delicious, warm breakfast waiting for me.

If you’re like me and love having chocolate for breakfast, you may want to check out some of my other recipes. My Easy Guilt-Free Chocolate Waffles and my Low-Carb Chocolate Pancakes with Peanut Butter Cream both start the day with chocolate. Enjoy!

Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate Muffins are simple to whip up and satisfying for all tummies.

If there&rsquos such thing as an &ldquoeasy sell&rdquo in our house, nothing pleases everyone more than absolutely anything I make whose name starts with chocolate. In fact, my kids&rsquo cheers of joy usually drown me out before I can even get the whole word out of my mouth.

Take these Chocolate Muffins for instance. Recently, my little angels were in the midst of a quarrel at the kitchen table and I was starting to lose my patience from all the bickering. Using my best diversionary skills I announced to them, &ldquoI made chocol&hellip&rdquo.

They were sold before they even knew what it was that I made. Amazing, the power chocolate in any form has over my kids. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree here. Chocolate is my own weakness, too. Whether it's in the form of a loaf, mousse, or ice cream topping, I can get behind any chocolate creation just like my kids. maybe even more so than my kids.

After each of their first bites, there was peace in the world (at least momentarily)&hellip.and something delicious in their tummies.

These chocolate muffins are light as a feather, but also pack a rich punch of chocolate. The next time you&rsquore trying to grab everyone&rsquos attention, just whip up a batch of these and watch what happens! I can pretty much guarantee you'll be the favorite family member for at least a few minutes.

Keep a batch on hand in the freezer to throw into school lunches during the week. They're great with coffee for a quick breakfast, or as a chocolate treat for an after school snack. I know I can often use a chocolate pick me up, and almost nothing makes my kids happier. Who can blame them?!

Tag me @weelicious on social media when you make these so I can see the big (chocolate covered) smiles on your kids faces!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

The other day my daughter asked me to make muffins. Not just any muffins, mind you, but chocolate chocolate chip muffins. years ago I used to keep a homemade master mix on hand, a homemade Bisquick type concoction, for making muffins, pancakes, etc. Recently I’ve started making that mix again so this was a perfect time to develop a recipe using that mix and some instant chocolate oatmeal I’ve had in the cabinet.

I’ve adapted the instructions so that you can certainly use regular instant oatmeal in this recipe. I just happened to have this chocolate instant oatmeal on hand:

If you have old fashioned oats, you will want to grind them up in the food processor first as instant cooks a lot faster than old fashioned. if you want to sneak some healthy goodness in here, toss in a tablespoon of wheat germ! These muffins are great, but don’t let them sit out too long. Store them in a container if they won’t be eaten right away.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 egg
2 cups Master Mix
3 tablespoons cocoa
scant 1/2 cup quick cooking oats or instant chocolate oatmeal
1 cup chocolate chips, divided

Preheat oven to 400 F and spray bottoms only of a 6 cup jumbo muffin pan*. In large bowl, whisk together milk, brown sugar, oil and egg. Stir in master mix, cocoa, and oats just until moistened. Mix only until moistened, batter may be lumpy, do not over mix. Fold in 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips and divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Sprinkle remaining 1/3 cup of chocolate chips on top of muffins.

Bake 8 minutes at 400 F, then reduce temperature to 350 F and bake an additional 18-20 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes then remove to rack to cool completely.

The recipe for the Master Mix that I make is here. You can substitute your own homemade baking mix or use Bisquick.

Healthy muffins are more dense than typical muffins. These tips will help you get the best results.

  1. Use parchment paper baking cups to keep the muffins from sticking. The healthy muffins tend to stick to other paper muffin liners. (Tip: If your muffins are already stuck to the liners wait overnight and they should easily peel off.)
  2. Press lightly on the top of a muffin when checking for doneness. It should spring back. If the muffin top stays indented or feels mushy the center is probably underbaked.
  3. To get your muffins to look like my photos fill the baking cups very close to the top. Add 5-10 minutes of baking time. (This makes about 12 muffins instead of 14.)


In Step 2, reduce flour to 1 cup, and add 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal.

Bran-RaisinIn Step 2, reduce flour to 1 1/2 cups, and add 1 cup bran and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon replace butter with 3/4 cup vegetable oil (such as safflower). At the end of Step 2, fold 3/4 cup raisins into batter.

At the end of Step 2, fold 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips into batter.

BlueberryAt the end of Step 2, fold 1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen) into batter.

At the end of Step 2, fold 3/4 cup chopped pecans and 3/4 cup dried cherries into batter.

  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup beaten yoghurt (curd)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoon chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon refined oil

Step 5 Let the muffins cool down

After baking is done, shift the kadhai on a cooling rack for half an hour. Let the lid remain, do not open and let the water droplets appear on the lid.

Fair praise, indeed!
