The teens from the libraries TAB group (Teen Advisory Board) had another bake sale today. I ended up baking most of the treats but that is okay, I had fun doing it.
I made these Death By Chocolate Muffins since the bake sale started in the morning I figured something with out frosting is a must. I also made my favorite Give Me S’more Cookies (which have almost sold out… ) You can find the Give Me S’more Cookies on MuffinsandMeat too. http://www.muffinsandmeat.com/2013/12/31/give-me-smore-cookies-2/.
I altered the original recipe that can be found at cookingandbeer.com
Death By Chocolate Muffins
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup buttermilk (room temperature) I used low fat
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, beaten (room temperature)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F line a muffin pan with cupcake/muffin liners; Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until combined and no clumps remain.
- In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, buttermilk, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat in the eggs, then the vanilla, and whisk until combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and fold the ingredients together with a large spoon until no dry ingredients remain. Do not over-mix.
- Stir in all of the chips, evenly dispersing them among the batter.
- Drop the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling them 3/4 of the way up the molds.
- Bake the muffins at 400 degrees F for 8 minutes and then decrease the temperature to 350 degrees F (or 365 degrees F if baking at high altitude) for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Remove from oven and let cool for a couple of minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool the rest of the way.
- The muffins are best served warm, but will keep in an airtight container for a week. Enjoy!
