Double Chocolate Muffins
- 1 ½ cups gluten free all purpose flour, I use ‘Bob’s Red Mill Baking 1-1 Gluten Free Flour’
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup 90g salted butter, cubed and softened at room temperature*
- ¾ cup coconut sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- ½ cup plain greek yoghurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ almond milk or milk of choice
- 170 g milk chocolate block, roughly chopped, for batter
- 90 g milk chocolate block, roughly chopped, for topping
- Preheat oven to 180ºC (356ºF). Line a 12-hole regular sized muffin pan with muffin liners. Set aside.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda, mix well and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, add butter. Take a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, lightly beat the butter for a few seconds just to break it down. Add coconut sugar and beat on high for 1 minute until well combined and fluffy.
- Add eggs, yoghurt and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 30 seconds or until light and well combined, scraping down the sides when needed.
- Add dry flour mixture into creamed mixture. Beat until just combined.
- Pour in milk, beat until milk has combined and mixture forms a soft batter, ensuring not to over-mix.
- Gently fold through first measurement of chopped chocolate.
- Spoon batter evenly amongst liners, filling each one just below the top edge.
- Sprinkle each muffin with second measurement of chopped chocolate.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
- Cool in pan for 5 minutes.
- Remove and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
