Double Chocolate Muffins

These double chocolate muffins are delicious and with a teaspoon of cinnamon, they taste double chocolatey!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Course Breakfast
Servings 12


  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 cup Truvia
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 large bananas
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1.5 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp dark chocolate chips divided
  • 6 tsp coarse sugar divided


  • Heat oven to 425
    In a large bowl, mix the melted butter, Splenda, egg, vanilla, bananas and almond milk together. I use a fork to mash the bananas.
    In a smaller bowl, add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and chocolate chips. Toss until all the chocolate chips are coated in the flour mixture - this will help them not fall to the bottom of the muffin.
    Mix the flour and banana mixture together just until combined.
  • Divide between 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of coarse sugar over the top. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean and the muffins pull away from the tin. I baked mine for 15 minutes.

What type of chocolate chips should I use in double chocolate muffins?

Feel free to use milk or dark chocolate chips.  You can even use Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips!

This recipe has a teaspoon of cinnamon in it – which wounds weird, but promise you won’t taste it – it just gives a depth of flavor to the chocolate – makes them taste more chocolately, if that is even a word!

My muffin was the perfect addition to my breakfast picky plate.  Since I am spending the weekend at my Mom’s house for Thanksgiving, other than my meat bin haul, I didn’t do a full grocery shop – I knew I had plenty of food to eat.

The muffin is 4, the ham is 2 and the egg with lite Trader Joe’s mozzarella is one point.  Super filling and delicious.

Jenn and I got our walking and shopping shoes on.  There was a pop up book store on State Street where every book was only $6.  We of course, do not need any cookbooks.  Like at all, but it was fun to look.  It was like walking down Weight Watchers time travel with cookbooks from 1993 where most of the recipes wanted us to throw up in our mouths.  I did think this cookbook was funny, but I am not that big of a fan of kale to get it.

I meal prepped some turkey burgers from ground turkey that I got from the meat bin.  The secret to a juicy turkey burger?  Just 3/4 teaspoon of butter in the middle.  I also cooked these only to 160, knowing that I was going to finish cooking them in the microwave at work.

I always laugh when I think that I have more beef in a week that my brother or sister have in probably six months. That’s okay – more beef for me!

Have you tried a chuck eye steak before?  It’s super economical – in fact, it’s called the poor man’s ribeye.  It’s super flavorful and less than half the cost of ribeye.  You need to cook this fast and furious over high heat to rare or medium rare, or low and slow.  I cooked mine for 2 1/2 minutes per side in my cast iron skillet. 

This meat is so flavorful – let me know if you try it!

A bunch of my east coast WW Instagram friends are going crazy over this Buffalo Plaid pullover from Old Navy.  First of all, I never knew that was called Buffalo Plaid and second, I had no intention of buying it for #getwiththeplaidgram where you can post your plaid pullover. 

So Jenn and I went to Old Navy and I was just going to try it on, get the picture and walk the fuck out.  Except I didn’t.  I stole it.  Just kidding!  OMG, this is so soft and it has pockets! 

I need to take a picture of it, but I have a peach fleece pullover I bought from Old Navy when Hannah was 4 years old and I still wear it.  Guess I’ll have this one for the next 22 years.

And while I can bitch and moan about having to work this holiday week, I have so much to be thankful for.  All the friends I’ve met online who have become friends in real life. 

My family – Hannah and Jacob being my roommates, my brother and his family coming to town.  A roof over my head and food in my fridge.  Life is good.

Happy Tuesday friends, make it a great day!  You can also check out my morning glory muffins – so good!
