double chocolate blender muffins

Quick and easy café style muffins!

Calling all chocolate lovers! We’ve got super quick, totally foolproof, double chocolate blender muffins that are in a league of their own. They’re rich and moist and studded with chocolate chips inside and out for the ultimate chocolate experience. Once you make these, you will never look at another chocolate muffin recipe again!

Most muffin recipes warn about the perils of over mixing muffin batter. But don’t worry about that with this recipe. Just throw all the ingredients in the Vibe blender jug, give a short, sweet burst of power and your batter is done. Have no fear, this blender batter will rise! We’ve used a whole bunch of simple baking tricks to get, domed, ultra-moist and tender café style muffins. Bonus, the method comes with an even easier clean up.

1.   First up we used brown sugar to get a rich caramel flavour that compliments chocolate. For a healthy sugar you can sub for a less refined sugar such as rapadura or use coconut sugar instead.

2.   To attain moist muffins, we use oil instead of butter. We aren’t too fond of using vegetable oil, (butter just tastes so much better) but in muffins oil really contributes moistness far more reliably.

3.   We use yogurt and milk. Yogurt adds lots of moisture without making the batter too thin. In addition, the acid in yogurt tenderises gluten, helping to make them light and fluffy. You can also substitute yogurt for cultured cream or sour cream. The extra fat will make these muffins even more decadent, moist, and rich.

4.   To enhance the chocolate flavour, we added a little bit of instant coffee (you won’t even taste it).

5.   For bonus rise we use both bicarb soda and baking powder.

6.   Finally, for the ultimate chocolate muffin experience, make sure to use good quality chocolate. The melty ones give the best experience.
