Double Chocolate Chip Muffins Ingredients

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup salted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Substitutions and Additions

BUTTERMILK: Regular milk can be substituted for the buttermilk, but the buttermilk adds moisture to the finished muffins. You can also make your own buttermilk using whole or 2% milk and lemon juice or distilled vinegar. For every 1 cup of milk, stir in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar. 

CHOCOLATE: CHIPS: You could substitute dark chocolate chips, or use fewer chocolate chips, adjusting to taste. If you are a real chocoholic, change up the chocolate chips for chocolate chunks for extra indulgent double chocolate chunk muffins. 

SOUR CREAM: Greek yogurt is a favorite substitute for sour cream in many recipes and it will work here as well when substituted 1:1.

How to Make This Double Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray.

STEP TWO: Sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.

STEP THREE: In a large mixing bowl, beat or whisk together eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract, buttermilk, and sour cream.

STEP FOUR: Dump dry ingredients into the butter/eggs/sour cream mixture and stir gently, just until combined. Do not overmix.

PRO TIP: Do not over stir the batter. The muffins will be too dense and tough.

STEP FIVE: Add chocolate chips and stir just until they are distributed throughout the batter.

PRO TIP: Tossing chocolate chips in a little bit of flour before adding them to the batter will help to keep them suspended in the batter for even distribution.

STEP SIX: Divide batter between the 12 muffin cups in the prepared pan, filling each cup about ¾ of the way full.

PRO TIP: An ice cream scoop is a great way to fill muffin cups mess-free.

STEP SEVEN: Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean.

STEP EIGHT: Cool muffins in pan for 5 minutes. Remove muffins to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

PRO TIP: Do not leave the muffins to cool in the baking pan. The heat from the pan will overcook them.
