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


  • 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


  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.
