I don't know about you, but I'm a huge fan of chocolate for breakfast. I grew up eating cocoa puffs for breakfast, so I was destined to carry the chocolate for breakfast tradition into adulthood. So if you're ever craving some chocolaty goodness in the morning, these muffins are just what you need. They're not overwhelming sweet, but are so fluffy and are packed with chocolate.

TIPS FOR THE BEST DOBULE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS
Be gentle with your batter. Put down the whisk! Instead of mixing vigorously until everything is combined, try gently folding your wet and dry ingredients together with a spatula. Overmixing your muffin batter can result in a more tough muffin. Also, if you've ever made muffin that have come out with peaky muffin tops, overmixing the batter was likely the cause.
Fill those muffin cups! Unlike cupcakes where you never want to overfill your baking cups, you want to be very generous with muffins. It is totally okay to have your muffin batter be up to the top of your baking cups, or even a little higher. This will help get you a big, fat, bakery-type muffin and muffin top.
Bake your muffins on a high heat. This is one of the main tips for getting an amazing muffin top. Baking muffins on a high temperature makes them rise very quicker than if they were baked on a lower setting. For this recipe, I bake the muffins at 400°F.
If you have dietary restrictions and can't eat gluten, I have a similar recipe for Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Muffins! They're just as fluffy and delicious, but made totally with oat flour!
Hoping these double chocolate muffins bring a little bit of sweetness and joy to your day! Happy baking ♥
