These triple chocolate muffins are the best chocolate muffins I’ve ever made! I’ve tried several chocolate muffin recipes till now and I can definitely say this one is way more tasty and chocolatey! If you like fudge cakes with a strong chocolate flavor, you should give these rich dark chocolate muffins a try!
Our triple chocolate muffins and eggless chocolate cupcakes are always hits for any special occasion. Chocolate itself is like a magical word that can cheer you up and your joy doubles when it combines with the word muffin.
Do you ever enter the kitchen to get some chocolate with your coffee to overcome your stress or melancholy? I guarantee these chocolate muffins do their job faster! You will feel proud of yourself when you see that amazing result after taking them out of oven.
The best part of these muffins is that they don’t contain butter, just very little olive oil. Don’t worry, you won’t even notice the flavor of it. It makes the muffins lighter and it’s a good reason to have more than one or even two!
If you’re baking something with chocolate, I think you should use dark chocolate. If it’s a high quality one, the result gets even better. The same is true for the cocoa powder you use. I t must be unsweetened and a good quality one to make irresistible chocolate treats with their color and taste.
I simply mixed milk and lemon juice to have buttermilk fort his recipe as it’s not sold in my country. You can do the same or just buy buttermilk. And it worked really well!
I’m not the only one who thinks that these are triple chocolate muffins are the best. I made these for a friend’s baby shower and the guests all asked for a second one saying these are so good! Unfortunately I made just one per person thinking that there would be some other great treats too! So increase the amounts if you are making these for a large group of people as they will ask for a second.
