Here’s the great thing about muffins: They’re easy to pack into a lunch or picnic basket. Also? You can make muffins in so many different flavors. Made with whole food ingredients, muffins generally have less sugar than a frosted cupcake. This decadent chocolate muffin recipe calls for just a half-cup of brown sugar along with a small amount of chocolate chips for sweetness.

If you want to increase the protein when serving these muffins, spread on a bit of peanut butter. Chocolate and peanut butter is a match made in heaven! Plus, adding a bit of peanut butter means you’ll feel full longer.

Making chocolate-chocolate chip muffins

As with all muffin recipes, when adding wet ingredients to dry, don’t over mix — stir just until combined. Leavened with baking soda and baking powder, this falls into the “quick bread” category, even if the recipe doesn’t come in loaf form, like this chocolate zucchini bread.

These muffins get their chocolatey goodness from dark cocoa and mini chocolate chips. They’re sweetened with brown sugar, though you could certainly substitute coconut sugar if you’d like. If you’re avoiding dairy products, feel free to substitute your favorite non-dairy nut milk. (Here’s how to make your own nut milk.)
