They taste like Costco double chocolate muffins. But better, because this chocolate muffin recipe doesn’t have any added preservatives or extra yucky stuff in them. They are homemade and even have whole wheat flour – but they are still amazingly delicious.

The Flour in this Chocolate Muffin Recipe

You can even skip the whole wheat part and use all-purpose flour if you wanted to. I just prefer using white whole wheat flour in muffins, because it makes me feel less guilty about calling them breakfast. And then I can have seconds, right?

I love this chocolate muffin recipe because they come out of the oven perfectly bouncy on top and soft and the chocolate chips are all melty. MMM, I think I might have another one right now. Just try them and you’ll see.

Can double chocolate muffins be frozen?

Yes. Muffins freeze very well. Simply let them cool to room temperature and pop them in a zip-top freezer safe bag or freezer safe container. Freeze up to 3 months. To defrost, just take them out and let them defrost at room temperature for an hour or so.

How Long Will homemade muffins keep?

About 2 to 3 days. If you plan on keeping them longer than that, then you should freeze them. They are easy enough to defrost on the counter or in the microwave.

What kind of oil do you use for muffins?

Many muffin recipes use conola or vegetable oil. This recipe for double chocolate muffins is made with coconut oil. The mild coconut flavor pairs nicely with the double chocolate flavors.
