Family Loved Recipe- Double Chocolate Muffins

Today I'm linking up with MamaKat and the prompt is "Share a recipe that everyone in your family loves." Well there's a lot that my family love and it took me a long time to decide which recipe I would feature here. I was going to give you a different recipe but I didn't get around to getting it from my mother so I'm giving you one of the ones that I have found so hasn't been a favorite as long, but still is a favorite, not just in my family but with everyone else I have shared it with. The recipe today is double chocolate muffins and I got this recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction which is one of my favorite recipe websites. I HIGHLY encourage your to visit her website and check out her delicious array of recipes. :) She has many healthier recipes like this one that don't taste healthy at all!

Double Chocolate Muffins


  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar (I've used the Truvia baking blend with great results)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (or regular yogurt, plain or vanilla)
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips, plus a few more for sprinkling on top
Preheat oven to 425˚ and spray a 12 count muffin pan. It is not recommended to use liners. Combine the applesauce, sugar, greek yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract. Sift together the flours, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and be careful not to over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips. Place batter evenly in muffin tin. Bake for 5 minutes at 425˚ and then keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the temperature down to 375˚ and continue to bake for 13 more minutes. If a toothpick does not come out clean, bake for 2 minutes longer. Once done, remove from oven and allow to cool for three minutes in the pan and then transfer to a wire rack to complete cooling.

  1. Sounds yummy. A girl after my own heart---you use applesauce!

    1. Applesauce is a great substitution for oil through I prefer using greek yogurt. The combination in this recipe though works amazingly!

  2. Sounds delicious. Now I want chocolate!
