Ingredients for this super moist double chocolate muffins recipe
Here are the ingredients you will need to make this double chocolate chip muffins recipe. Make sure to scroll down to the recipe card for the full detailed ingredient measurements.
- All-purpose flour
- Cocoa powder
- Baking powder & baking soda
- Imperial Sugar granulated sugar
- Sour cream- If you do not have sour cream you can also use Greek yogurt.
- Vegetable oil
- Vanilla extract
- Freshly brewed coffee- The hot coffee helps accentuate the chocolate flavor but doesn’t make your muffins taste like coffee. Another good option would be warm whole milk, warm almond milk, or even warm water.
- Chocolate chips or chocolate chunks- I used semisweet chocolate chips for these but I know they will be just as well with dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or even milk chocolate chips in the batter.

Frequently asked questions – FAQ
How to store these chocolate muffins?

Can I freeze these double chocolate muffins?
You sure can! Place them in an airtight container or freezer bag and into the freezer, they go for up to 3 months. You can thaw the muffins in the fridge overnight or on the counter for a few hours.
Why are my double chocolate muffins dry?
There are a few reasons why that is. You either overcooked your muffins making them extra dry or you overmixed them. When baking these muffins, make sure that the ingredients you are using are at room temperature and make sure not to overmix your batter either for a tender crumb.
