Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins

Please forgive me, but I’m going to do it again. I’m passing you all another muffin recipe that is pretty much just an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast. Chocolate is good for you, though, right? At least that’s what I’ve read (I throw away the magazines that say otherwise, don’t you?). Those are the kind of magazine articles I actually like to read.

So if you are one of those picky moms that feeds your kids nothing but sprouts and granola, you might wanna just skip this recipe. Heck, who am I kidding? You may as well skip my whole blog (LOL!) but for the others of you that think chocolate for breakfast is your idea of wonderful, read on because these babies are gonna knock your socks off!

And I’m only teasing about the granola and sprouts thing…I happen to like both, but I just prefer chocolate. 😉

Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup cocoa

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 1/4 cups buttermilk (lowfat works great)

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda. In a medium bowl, mix together the egg, buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix lightly, just until combined (it may still be a little lumpy). Stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon into the muffin tins (I use a 1/4 cup ice cream/cookie dough scoop) lined with paper muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until done. Cool completely and store in a paper bag until ready to serve.

    Hi there, I found your recipe when I was searching for affirmation that I could make a chocolate buttermilk muffin. I have a favourite basic buttermilk muffin recipe and have been experimenting with different variations. Indeed, a chocolate muffin (not cupcake!) is possible! My recipe is nearly identical to yours, but I have made some calorie-cheating adjustments and flavour modifications. For a 150 cal muffin, replace the butter with unsweetened applesauce and reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. I experimented with adding 1 cup of fresh cranberries and some orange zest. I’d try again using maraschino cherries for a black forest muffin. Happy baking!

    We’ll items such take yet another appear at to two styles of users: newly released Zune vendors who will probably be generating plans for an upgrade, and the ones doing this to come to the conclusion between a Microsoft zune plus an ipod touch. (A great deal far more experts worthwhile considering available to pick from, which incorporate the The new sony Individual stereo Times, however This certain this supplies you sufficient research to get the top notion from Zune rather of masters as apposed towards the iPod brand similar.)
