Chocolate Yogurt Muffins will satisfy your chocolate muffin craving and warm your heart on a chilly fall day. If you are a quick breakfast person, these muffins will definitely be a perfect morning treat for you. These make wonderful dessert too! I can proudly say that these are great at any time of the day.
Some readers might realize that I’ve been trying recipes with yogurt and have been amazed by all the results so far. It definitely makes things moister and lighter, which is something everyone wants. So I guess I’ll be using it even more in my baking.
Simple yogurt cake is still a hit in our home and among our guests, but I wanted to try something different this time. That’s the reason why I wanted to make these Chocolate Yogurt Muffins.
These muffins are for chocolate lovers as I used both cocoa powder and chocolate chips in them. If you are planning to have these at breakfast, spread a little nutella or peanut butter on their top and enjoy more.
The chocolate chips inside and on the top make them even more chocolaty and rich. The outside of these Chocolate Yogurt Muffins is slightly chewy but the inside is soft and fluffy thanks to yogurt. I used plain homemade yogurt in them, so it was a little watery. If you use store bought yogurt or Greek yogurt you might need to change the measurement and add some milk because it is thicker. I guess ½ cup yogurt and ½ cup milk will be ok.
