Everybody in our house loves muffins! They’re easy to make and they’re great for breakfasts and snacks throughout the week. Bakerman especially loves muffins as he’s always asking if we can bake some…

It was his lucky day earlier this week because he just happened to be “sick” on the day I was planning to bake these muffins again so I could photograph and share the recipe with y’all. I had made them a few times the week before testing the recipe and he gave me a big happy two thumbs up when I finally got it great. Chocolate muffins are his favorite so I’m glad I’ve now got a healthier recipe up my sleeve for when he requests them.

Description

Healthier Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins made with whole wheat flour, greek yogurt, no butter or oil, and sweetened with all-natural flavored cane syrup.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 11/2 cups white whole wheat or whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup vanilla flavored greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup non-fat milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa. In a medium bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, yogurt, vanilla, egg and milk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in the larger bowl and stir with a spoon until well combined. Stir in 3/4 cup chocolate chips.
  3. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups, filling each one almost full. Press a few of the remaining chocolate chips into the top of the batter for each muffin.
  4. Bake for 16-18 minutes, rotating muffin pan halfway through baking time, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (If you hit a chocolate chip with the toothpick when testing the muffins, try it in another spot as the chocolate chips will most definitely put melted chocolate on the toothpick.)
  5. Let muffins rest in pan for 5 minutes before serving or transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days.

  1. I would LOVE to try these but I cannot find that Shuga. I clicked on the link to find a store near me, but none of those stores have it. Help!

    1. Hi Rachel! I’m so sorry to hear that. I think you can order the Simply Cane SHUGA! syrup online or you could use another type of syrup and they should still turn out great. Enjoy!
