Dry ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups (210 grams) flour
  • 3/4 cup (165 grams) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (50 grams) cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (see recipe note 1)
Wet ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt (plain unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup oil (canola, vegetable, sunflower etc)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F, line a 12 count muffin tin with paper cases or spray with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. Add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk together.

  3. Add the eggs to a medium sized mixing bowl and whisk lightly. Add all remaining wet ingredients and whisk together.

  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in. Using a rubber spatula, fold together the dry & wet ingredients until they are just mixed together. A few small flour pockets are fine.

  5. Evenly distribute the batter between the 12 prepared muffin tins.

  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to sit in the muffin tins for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.

  7. Store in an airtight container for 5 days or freeze.

Recipe Notes
  1. I like to add 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips to the mixture and save the other 1/4 cup to sprinkle on top of the muffins before baking
