Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegan)

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins  In Johnna's Kitchen

These muffins, while not picture perfect, are so full of rich chocolate flavor and wonderful texture, that I just had to share them with you.  Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins are a great way to start the day.

I say this because muffins are for breakfast, right?  I saw some diet guru on TV recently and he said whoever came up with the name muffin was just trying to find a way to trick us into eating cake for breakfast.  Maybe he’s right.  Don’t care.  I’m eating these for breakfast.  Also, maybe for lunch.

While these are a bit cake-like, they are definitely not as sweet as cake and the texture is more muffin-like than the delicate crumb of a cake.  These are a favorite roadtrip snack of mine because they hold together well. They also pack well if you are a lunchbox fan.    Enjoy!

    Johnna, I love these muffins! Chocolate and more chocolate and practically coming out of the pan are my kind of muffins. :-) I also love making vegan muffins using dairy-free yogurt. You should enter these in the So Delicious recipe contest being sponsored by So Delicious and Go Dairy Free. I’d vote for them!

      Thanks, Shirley! I took your suggestion and entered this recipe in the contest. I use their cultured coconut milk (I call it CoCoYo) in almost all of my cupcake and muffin recipes. I even used it in my hashbrown casserole recipe that I shared recently. Good stuff!
