I wanted to use up some of the buttermilk I had in the fridge, so I just typed in buttermilk muffins, yummm, some chocolate muffins sounded good to me, actually double chocolate muffins! It's an easy recipe and more than likely you have the ingredients on hand, well, maybe not the buttermilk, put it on y our grocery list!! It's great for baking and homemade buttermilk pancakes are the best! The recipe originally comes from Jen at Jen's Favorite Cookies.
1/2 c. vegetable oil, I used canola
1 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. cocoa powder ( I didn't have any regular cocoa so I substituted the dark here, the only cocoa I buy now is a darker variety at Bulk Barn)
1/4 c. dark cocoa powder
1 c. chocolate chips
Mix ingredients in order - how easy is that???
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.
Give them a try - I don't think you'll be disappointed!!!
