More of my favorite sweet tooth breakfast recipes are Chocolate Chip Buttermilk SconesChocolate Crepes with StrawberriesBrownie Batter Pancakes, and Red Velvet Pancake with Cream Cheese Topping.

There are many chocolate lovers in my house, and these muffins disappeared quickly. I added a glaze on top for presentation, I like how it contrasts over the dark chocolate, but for the flavor you don’t even need it; either way the points remain the same. This recipe makes 12 large muffins, you could probably even get 14 if you fill the muffin tins 3/4 full. Mini muffins would make a great back to school snack for the little ones, they won’t even know there’s fruit in them! Leftovers can be refrigerated or frozen to last longer.

  1. These remain one of my favorite indulgent treats. My adult kids are making me breakfast for dinner and this is my request for dessert. Love Them.

  2. I made these muffins and they are the best! I subbed one whole egg for two egg whites, and monk fruit sugar for the regular sugar. They are fluffy, chocolatey and moist. Great recipe. 

  3. These are delicious! My kids demolish each batch in about a day and it’s a great alternative to banana bread when you have over ripe bananas.

  4. These muffins are delicious. I used 1/2 semi sweet and half milk chocolate chips. I also made them in the larger muffin pan, so there were only 6–I baked them an extra 5 minutes because they were larger. They turned out perfectly moist! These could be made into a delicious cupcake if you added a cream cheese frosting. 

  5. This recipe is delicious!!! This is the third time I’ve made it. I made it in a loaf pan this time. I cooked it for about 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe called for and it came out amazing!!! Definitely one of my all time favorites. Super moist and almost like a cake. I added some chopped walnuts for a little something extra but it would be just as good without them.

  6. FINALLY MADE THEM AND THEY ARE SO DELICIOUS.

  7. These were delicious! My almost 13 year old declared them his second favorite muffins ever (favorite has been your chocolate chip pumpkin muffins for YEARS!). I didn’t make the glaze because I don’t want my son to expect it when I make any muffins, haha! Plus, we usually eat them for breakfast and the glaze makes them messier on the go. But it’s totally not needed, as they were amazing without. I don’t know why I’ve never made them before today!

  8. These are absolutely delicious! I topped mine with chopped pecans before baking.  The kids kept calling them brownies when they were eating them.  They are super moist and fluffy, cake like muffins.  Really good.

  9. Been making these for years and they’re one of my favorite muffin recipes regardless of healthfulness. I recently veganized these with a flax egg to replace the egg whites and vegan butter… turned out great! 🍌
