Moist Chocolate Muffins



A prayer I have everyday, in and out… I guess I don’t elaborate myself over it… that much this prayer means for me… Alhamdulillah! πŸ™‚


My chocolate love continues… just the other day, I was thinking to myself that I have not baked much of chocolate after this muffin, which was baked for breakfast almost a month ago. The problem with me these days is that though I love to bake, I try keeping away from eggs and butter, trying to make myself feel that I am cutting down on the calories and in fact, later craving for a rich and decadent feast altogether. That reminds me that I am getting so close to the BST’s 500th post!!! Woah… I am grounded! Does it call for a celebration? My kitchen is in such a desperate stage that I don’t think I may be able to make something special but my heart says I must celebrate this mad blogging journey of mine… Let’s see what I am able to manage… πŸ™‚


Till then, let us enjoy this healthy muffins which are perfect for some sweet dark coffee in the morning. I enjoyed them again for snack as well! Hehe… As usual, I used a mix of wholewheat and all-purpose flour and enjoyed the moisty density that the wholewheat gives!!! πŸ™‚Β Recipe adapted from here

Author Rafeeda


  • 1 cup wholewheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips I used mini ones
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Line your 12 hole muffin pan.
  • Whisk all the dry ingredients - flours to sugar - in a bowl.
  • Whisk all the wet ingredients - egg to milk - in another bowl till well combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk till the batter is done. The batter would be thick.
  • Spoon into each muffin liner till 3/4 is filled. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then cool on the rack completely.


1. You can increase the sugar to 1 cup, as the sweetness was really mild.
2. You can sprinkle some choco-chips on top to make it more rich!
3. 1 baked 6 normal muffins and 5 large muffins from the above quantity.
