If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that I generally like to keep things as healthy as possible. However, I’ve said before that pleasure and health go hand in hand. Healthy eating can definitely include partaking in a reasonable amount of desserts and calories. So this is one of those recipes for times when you feel like treating yourself. Portion size and frequency are important concepts to keep in mind, so enjoy recipes like this one in moderation. 🙂
One thing you can feel good about is since these muffins are homemade, you know exactly what’s inside the batter. This makes them better for you than most pre-packaged muffins that are available for purchase at the store.
Tips for Making Double Chocolate Muffins
Here are a couple of pointers to ensure these muffins turn out perfect every single time:
- For fluffy muffins that rise well, do not to over-mix the muffin batter. Over-mixing will cause your muffins to be dense and flat. When adding the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mix them together until just combined and that’s it.
- Try using an ice cream scoop to portion the batter into the muffin pan cups. It will help ensure the batter is evenly distributed.
How to Freeze Chocolate Muffins
You can freeze the muffins for up to 3 months. Once they are done baking, allow them to cool off completely. Then place each one in a freezer-safe zipped-top bag or container and pop the muffins in the freezer.
When ready to eat, thaw in the refrigerator or out on the counter. To warm up, microwave on high for about 20 seconds or bake at 300°F (149°C) for 5-10 minutes.
