Do you love muffins or do you love them? You’ll love the recipe for these eggless double chocolate chunk muffins – they’re moist, delicious and ultra chocolatey – everything that a good muffin should be!
In the world of desserts, there’s a clear divide between Team Muffin and Team Cupcakes. You have to fall in one camp – there’s no in-between. If you say you’re not sure – it just means that you probably haven’t figured it out yet. And I’m here today to help you lean slightly towards Camp Muffin – coz these double chocolate chunk muffins are literally the best you’ll ever have!
Muffins are not Cupcakes!
Let’s get one thing out of the way first – muffins and cupcakes are not the same. No matter how many people try and convince me – there’s no way you can pass off one for the other. Cupcakes are mini cakes. You can practically take any recipe for a cake and make a smaller version of it, frost it and call it a cupcake. Muffins on the other hand are taller, broader, drier, and non-frosted – but in no way less delicious – I actually am a strong Team Muffin – sure, a cupcake once in a while is great, but give me a good muffin on any day – for breakfast, at a picnic, as an evening snack, literally anywhere. That it’s easy to eat, without the fuss of drooping or melting frosting, or the hassle of cutting a cake into slices is just the cherry on top or not 😀
Double Chocolate Chunk Muffins
These muffins use cocoa powder and chocolate chunks to really emphasize the “double” in their name – they’re outright chocolatey – so if that’s not your thing then look away – but chocolate lovers can rejoice! The most gorgeous part of these muffins is the chunks that somewhat melt on the inside and create a beautiful bite on the top. Sure you could use chocolate chips too in place of the chunks but then you’ll get a chocolate chip muffin, won’t you? And you won’t get the slightly oozy chocolatey crumb. I also recommend to add a tbsp. of milk to the batter if you are going to replace the chunks with chips.
The batter for these muffins is thick – almost like frosting – so don’t be alarmed. It’s exactly what you need to create delicious muffins. However, if it’s too thick – almost like a dough (which could happen because yogurt will have different consistencies for different people) then you could add from 2-5 tsp of milk to balance the batter.
The rest of the ingredients for the eggless double chocolate chunk muffins are pretty simple and you’ll find yourself making these more often than you thought.

Hey Pooja! This recipe looks good. Will definitely try it! Which chocolate to use for chunks? Any suggestions?
Hi Rashmi, use any dark baking chocolate – Van Houten is a reasonable and decent brand. You could also use Callaebaut or others.
Hi pooja , for baking the muffins we need to use both the rods upper nd lower or only a single rod is fine
Hi Riya, these muffins will bake best with both rods on
Made this today and they came out perfect! Thanks Pooja 🙂
With ref to Riyas comment about heating rods….in my borosil oven model, I’ve found only lower heating rod mode to work best with cakes muffins etc…when I use both heating rods the top flattens and doesn’t bake properly. Perhaps that’s specific to Oven features.
Hi Shilpa, yes all ovens work differently. Some ovens do give better results with only the bottom heating element working whereas some others may end up burning a baked product. With both rods on, you don’t run that risk
can I even try Amul coffee flavoured dark chocolate in this recipe .?
Hi Kanchan, yes you can certainly use coffee flavoured chocolate
It is suprb recipe pooja mamm.
Thank you so much! Glad you like it
