Chocolate muffins are an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast. They are basically cake in a muffin tin, BUT they are called muffins so that means they are totally acceptable for breakfast! The best way to say good morning if you ask me!

This Double Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe comes from my friend Gaby’s cookbook, Eat What You Want. I want to make all of the recipes in the book, but I had to start with the chocolate muffins. They were calling my name!

If you like Costco’s GIANT chocolate muffins, you will LOVE this chocolate muffin recipe. They are easy to make at home and loaded with chocolate.

The muffins are moist, tender, and the perfect breakfast or anytime. Chocolate lovers will go crazy for these muffins! Enjoy for breakfast, dessert, or a sweet snack!

The ingredients are simple, which is kind of dangerous, I might be making these on a weekly basis. To make the muffins, you will need:

  • All-purpose flour– spoon and level!
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder– to give the muffins a rich chocolate flavor!
  • Baking powder and baking soda– you need both!
  • Salt– to enhance all of the flavors.
  • Hot water– bring water to a boil and then use!
  • Granulated sugar– to sweeten the muffins.
  • Vegetable oil– to keep the muffins moist!
  • Eggs and an egg yolk– the extra egg yolk keeps the muffins rich and moist.
  • Vanilla extract– use pure vanilla extract.
  • Sour cream– use full fat sour cream for best results. You can also use Greek yogurt.
  • Chocolate chips – I like to use semi-sweet chips, but dark or milk will work too! Guittard is my favorite brand.

How to Make Chocolate Muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a standard 12-cup muffin tin or jumbo 6-cup muffin tin with paper liners. I made standard muffins so I could eat two instead of one…ha!
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, ¼ cup of the cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ½ cup cocoa powder and the hot water until smooth. The hot water and cocoa mixture is going to make the muffins super moist and fudgy! YES!
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the sugar, vegetable oil, eggs and yolk, and the vanilla on medium speed until combined, about 30 seconds. Add the cocoa powder mixture and beat until smooth.
  • In three additions, add the flour mixture alternating with the sour cream until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add 2 cups of the chocolate chips. Beat until just combined, making sure you don’t over mix.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin tin cups. Sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chips. They make the muffins extra pretty and more chocolate is always a good idea!
  • Bake in the center of the oven until the muffins have risen above the pan and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes for standard muffins, and 40 for jumbo.

Recipe Tips

  • Use high quality cocoa powder and chocolate chips for the best chocolate flavor.
  • Use full fat sour cream for super rich chocolate muffins. If you don’t have sour cream, you can use plain Greek yogurt.
  • You can use vegetable oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil, or melted coconut oil.
  • If you want to intensify the chocolate flavor, you can use hot coffee instead of hot water.
  • Don’t over mix the muffin batter or you will end up with tough muffins and you don’t want that!
  • Don’t over bake the muffins or the muffins will be dry. If it is your first time making the recipe, I recommend checking the muffins at 20 minutes to be safe because every oven is different.

How to Store

Remove the pan from the oven and place on a wire cooling rack. Let the muffins cool slightly before removing from the tin. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. Store cooled muffins in an airtight container on the counter for up to three days.

You can also freeze the muffins. Place cooled muffins in a freezer container or freezer bag. Freeze for up to two months. Defrost before enjoying. You can reheat the muffins in the microwave if you want the chocolate to get a little melty, which I recommend:)

  63. I love to cook and bake! I have thoroughly enjoyed making several of Maria’s recipes. The double chocolate muffins look amazing. I would ecstatic to win Gaby’s new cookbook!

  64. I’m salivating, can’t wit to try these muffins and get your book. Everything you post looks amazingly delicious. Keep inspiring ❤️

We like to bake, side by side…her making a recipe with conventional flour and me converting it to gluten free (we have one family member who can’t consume gluten).

    1. I haven’t tried mayo in this recipe, but it might work. Let me know if you make them with mayo!

    You never fail to delight! My son’s girlfriend and I are always going on and on about the simplicity and deliciousness of your recipes. The fruit salad recipe in your cookbook is hands down the best anyone in my family has ever tasted and now chocolate muffins from Gaby!!!!!

Thank you for continuing to bring happy inspirations to our homes in this most unusual of times!

  116. I love your cookbook so if you say hers is good, then I’m all in! Will be trying the muffins soon!

  117. These look FABULOUS! Always love new cookbooks and if it’s anything like your cookbook, Two Peas & Their Pod, I know it will be fantastic and used A LOT! Thank you!,

  118. Our supermarket was completely wiped out of flour and we try to wait to go grocery shopping every 2 weeks so saved those yummy looking muffins for later. However, chicken breasts were on sale so we stocked up and first thing we made was your Chili Lime Grilled Chicken. It is our favorite grilled chicken recipe and we always make extra because they are so good in fajitas, tacos–anything Mexican.

  119. Muffins are my favorite comfort foods. I don’t feel as much guilt having a muffin as I do brownies or cookies but love them, I do. Eager to try these yummy muffins. Gabby’s cookbook looks amazing!

  120. The cupcakes look delicious. I will be making them this weekend in mini tins. I like to have a variety on hand in the freezer for guests. These will be perfect! Thanks for all of your great recipes!

  125. I am making these muffins along with some cut up fruit and your sweet potato and kale hash recipe from your cookbook to deliver to my mom on Mother’s Day. 🙂

  126. Definitely want to give these a go! Will be making tomorrow for the week for our 3 girls:) Thanks so much!!

  127. If all of the recipes in this cookbook look as delicious as the chocolate muffins you posted here, that cookbook would get a lot of use at my house! Take care and thank you! Lisa

  128. These sound fabulous! Great way to balance an otherwise “healthy” Mother’s Day brunch.

  129. These muffins look amazing! I am a chocoholic to the max!!! I will definitely try them. I love your blog tremendously! We have been going thru a tough time. We found out our 14 year old calico cat, Precious, has oral cancer. It’s been seven weeks since we found out and with her age, we opted not to put her thru treatments. The doctor said if we did, it would be traumatic for her and only prolong her life for about a month. It’s been really tough, but she’s hanging in there. Just want to let you know that cooking/baking is my coping mechanism for this and your blog has been my go to for dealing with this. Thank you for providing a needed distraction. You’re amazing!

  130. These look amazing! They look like the perfect weekend treat. You and Gaby both have delicious recipes that my whole family loves. Thanks for sharing!

  134. My mouth is watering. I just made up a grocery list to get the few ingredients that I am missing. As soon as I get to the store, these will be in my oven!

  135. These are always my top pick for muffins at bakeries! I love that I have all these ingredients on hand right now and that I can freeze them.

  136. Can’t wait to try these muffins! I’m a new follower of yours and Gaby’s both! Love you two!

  137. I’d be so excited to win a copy of your cookbook. I want to make those chocolate chip muffins!!

    1. Watching television and thinking about getting a snack….would love one of these muffins!!! Hope to make some soon.

  138. My daughter wanted me to buy these from the grocery store, so glad to have found this recipe! Fresh is sooo much better! Looking forward to more recipes from Gaby!

  139. These look so yummy! Can I put the batter in a loaf pan? I think this would make a great double chocolate bread!

    Mom of a newborn, my time is limited. Having a nice cookbook on hand would really save me the time of looking up new recipes online all the time. I love getting in the kitchen trying new recipes whenever my husband holds our little sweetie pie. I really like the idea of knowing exactly what’s in the food that I’m serving my family.

  145. This is perfect timing! I recently made your chocolate banana bread and wanted to make more – but without the banana because I don’t have any now and I’m not going to the grocery often. This will hit the spot and I’ll share the muffins with neighbors (best way to make friends with them!) 🙂

  146. Definitely will be making these muffins! They look delicious. I think I will bake them and send to someone special whose birthday is next week. Hopefully, he’ll love them.

  147. Recipe sounds great. Will have to try them! would luv to win Gabbys cook book- I still luv cook books!! I have made ur granola bars with the pretzels which are great!

  148. I have always wanted permission to eat what I want…this sounds like the perfect cookbook for me…and chocolate…? My favorite!

  149. These look SO good! Cannot wait to have my family make these for me on Mother’s Day 😉

  150. I’ve just gone to chocolate heaven. What an excuse to rip open by bag of Costco chocolate chips!

  151. These muffins look delicious, definitely going to give them a try! I always love your recipes!! Hope to win the cookbook too!

    I’m so making these muffins – my 5 year old loves the mini ones from our local coffee shop and we’ve been missing them while stuck in quarantine! Thank you!

  156. Chocolate chip muffins were one of my favorite things to make when I was in grad school. I’m definitely trying this one. The cookbook sounds fabulous, too.


  157. Those muffins look AMAZING!
    I would love to win Gaby’s cookbook. I saw her the other day on an old episode of The Kitchen.

  158. I’m making your Sprinkle Chocolate Chip Cookies today for my neighbors for Mother’s day. Always a hit.

    1. I would love your cookbook! Happy Mother’s Day to you, thanks for the Mother’s Day recipes.

  159. These look perfect for me to make for myself for Mother’s Day! I recently “discovered” Gaby and love her bubbly-ness!!

  160. I have been wanting to make chocolate muffins for a few weeks now so this recipe came at the perfect time! And as a bonus, I’d love to win the cookbook!

    Yummm, I was trying to decide on what to bake today. I just made my decision. Thanks for always having delicious recipes.

  162. 5 stars
    By the pictures, I’d give that a 5-star rating! All the chocolate…yum! What is the actual difference between a cupcake and a muffin – frosting? Eating these I’d be thinking about Bill Cosby’s skit of “Eating chocolate cake for breakfast!”

  163. 4 beautiful sons plus 1 handsome husband that LOVE chocolate = I will be making these
    delicious looking muffins!

  164. So excited to try these! What a perfect activity to do with my daughter this rainy afternoon.

  165. These muffins look amazing! When I was growing up, my grandmother knew my absolute favorite dessert was chocolate cake…and it’s still that way today! I made a chocolate cake this past Sunday, and gave my 93 year old mom some to take home. She called yesterday to see if I had any left. I didn’t, so I made another one last night for her! This muffin recipe looks similar to the recipe I used…only better! Thanks for the recipe…and that cookbook looks great!

  166. The chocolate muffins look delish! I will bake a batch soon. Maria, I would really LOVE to win a copy of Gaby’s cookbook.

  167. I would make these muffins right now but I’m out of sour cream! Next grocery run will solve that problem!

  168. Awesome giveaway! Since I’ve been laid off of my jobs, I have more time now to cook but can’t really afford to spend any extra money to purchase her new cookbook.

  169. Made these muffins yesterday and they were delicious! Mine were a little dry on the outside but I have a feeling that was chef error ‍♀️ Just means I’ll have to make them again soon! Hope I can win Gaby’s book and try even more delicious recipes 🙂

  170. These chocolate chip muffins came out amazing,,,,I decided to substitute the 1/2 cup warm water with 1/2 cup Komodo Dragon brewed ☕️ coffee…delicious! I will make them again ❤️❤️

    1. Hello what can be used instead of sour cream? I am beginner literally for baking so the use of sour cream I m kinda hesitant to use that …

  171. I was so looking forward to making these but mine came out dry….any idea why? I have them in the oven @ 375 for 25 minutes.

    1. Try baking them for a little less next time. Your oven might be different.

  172. Hello Maria;

    Just made your delicious muffins. Absolute perfection! I did not have any sour cream so I used yogurt and they are very moist. I used 1/2 of regular chocolate chips and one half of mini chocolate chips and sprinkled mini chocolate chips on the top. This recipe is a keeper.

    Thank you very much for sharing.

    This was delicious! Simple to make, and now we don’t need to go to Costco anymore for their chocolate muffins! Thank you for the recipe!!!

    My kids wanted to make chocolate muffins so I found this recipe and guided them through it. My husband said they were the best chocolate chip muffins he’s ever had (that’s saying a lot!) It was easy to make and really tasty!

    Made these yesterday. They taste delicious but I was a little disappointed how they turned out on the dryer side than I expected. I followed the recipe to the T apart from decreasing the cooking time by 5 minute (switch should have made them even more moist). I would make these again but definitely play with the hydration ratio.

  176. hi im planning on making these tomorrow and was wondering if i needed to add chocolate chips i just like em plain

    how would i do that?

    Love this!!! I used Lindt chocolate broken into pieces and they were so good, I couldn’t wait for them to cool! I’m planning to add some walnuts this time

  179. Hi! I am planning to use this recipe but wanted to ask if this exact recipe could be used for a cake instead? Looks delicious!

    These turned out so good! Subbed in grape seed oil and plain Greek yogurt and they were amazing. My kids loved them. Thank you!

    I was craving Costco double chocolate muffins and decided to try my hand at this recipe. It was fantastic! So soft & so chocolatey. Even after a few days in the fridge, we’d just pop it in the microwave for about 30 seconds and it would still taste fresh. The cup sizes on the muffin pan were about 7cm x 3cm (2.75″ x 1.25″) and this recipe made 13 muffins.

    I made this for my collegues-can’t have it as I am gluten intolerant but my hubby told it that it is AMAZING! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Good to list ingredients, but impossible to make without knowing how much of each ingredient is needed. Are we meant to guess?

    So one standard 12 cup muffin tin wasn’t enough for me…I got 20 muffins from this recipe as written. Confused, but happy! They’re so good. I baked for 18 minutes.

    1. I’m guessing the recipe used a jumbo-sized muffin pan instead of a standard cupcake pan.

  184. 5 stars
    Very tasty. I cooked for 20 minutes and they were a little dry…my fault not the recipe. Most muffins i’ve made in my oven take 16-18 mins…should have checked at that time. I will make again and take them out sooner.

  185. these are the most amazing muffins. So happy I found this recipe. Copied,
    made, then lost the recipe. They are sooo yummy. Thanks so for sharing

    There is a reason this recipe has 91 *5* star reviews! These muffins are AH-MAZING! I have been on the hunt for the perfect Sam’s club Jumbo double chocolate muffins copycat recipe since Sam’s is over an hour from us and y’all… These muffins are IT! The only added thing I did was coat the chocolate chips going into the batter with flour so they don’t all sink and melt at the bottom Soooooooo good! Recipe was easy to follow and bake times were very accurate. I definitely recommend following the instructions and not skip anything. You’ll be glad you did!

    Great recipe. Used applesauce for the oil. Seemed to work well. Reduced sugar to 3/4 cup. Got 18t muffins. Baked 20 minutes. Great flavor and texture. You always have recipes.

    Made these muffins this afternoon. I stubbed the water for coffee to add more depth of flavor. The time seems to be a bit long. So I put my muffins in for 18 minutes and they were done. Maybe my oven cooks at a higher temperature? Not sure, but I would definitely check them before the suggested time.
