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!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 10 cavities of a muffin pan with paper cupcake liners.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, almond flour, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder baking soda and sea salt. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine non-dairy yogurt, non-dairy milk and vanilla extract.
