Remember my Double Chocolate Nutella Muffins or my Jumbo Blueberry Muffins? Great recipes, by the way, you should check them out. It’s not a secret that I love baking muffins, probably even more than I love eating them. Baking is science, everyone knows that – add the right amount of ingredients, bake them at a specific temperature and congratulations, you’re a baker.
But somehow, when I’m baking muffins, I feel like I can become a full time artist and get as creative as I want. My first chocolate muffins ever were made out of flour, oil, eggs, cocoa and sugar. Imagine how boring that was to bake!
Then I started adding different ingredients, such as nuts, fruits, nutella – baking with Nutella was such an amazing discovery for me, by the way. Now I’m tempted to add nutella to every chocolate dessert! It’s just so good and so simple, right?
But I wanted some ultimate chocolate muffins using only chocolate and cocoa. No help from Nutella or other chocolate spreading. The fact that I was out of Nutella might have been a factor, too, I’m not gonna lie.
So I gathered all the ingredients plus one ripped banana that I had around the house – which let me tell you, made ALL the difference! Banana and chocolate – I’ve heard that might make a good combo, never tried it, though. But now I totally know what the hype is all about!
These muffins turned out to be so moist and tender, due do the yogurt and banana. I also used a lot of cocoa powder because I was going for that strong chocolate flavor.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to take much pictures because they were gone in a few minutes. Yes, all of them!
