Happiness is a chocolatey treat that’s comforting and goes with your favourite cup of jo! But here’s the thing if you’re going to enjoy something this decadent first thing in the morning – like these double chocolate coconut yogurt muffins, make sure you mean business! Seriously, they are chocolate on chocolate and you can’t be sorry about it. So don’t bother cutting back on the chocolate or the sugar, enjoy what they are or else you’re just robbing yourself of something delicious. Savour your treat, it’s better than buying a chocolate cake to fix that craving later!
The yogurt in these muffins makes me feel like I’m balancing the unhealthy part, ha! Let’s be real, I’m dreaming right?! But it does help keep these muffins moist. Just like buttermilk it keeps baked goods moist and tender by breaking down gluten and adding that acidic tang. Buttermilk, yogurt and sour cream are key baking ingredients and I just love working with them, especially in muffins. If you haven’t discovered baking with these ingredients yet, well, you’re missing out. Whenever I have sour cream or buttermilk kicking around in the fridge I feel inspired to make some muffins (one of my favourite things to bake).
What I love about double chocolate coconut yogurt muffins is the ease of popping them into the freezer and pulling one or two out. I can throw a muffin in my purse for a snack later or add one to my lunch for a busy day ahead. They are just the perfect snack; I find muffins so comforting.
Whether you want to call these double chocolate coconut yogurt muffins a dessert rather than breakfast or a snack, just make sure you try them, share them and enjoy each and everyone one of them!
