Double Chocolate Muffins


2 Cups Plain Flour

2 t. Baking Powder

1/2 t. Bicarb. Soda

1/4 Cup Cocoa

3/4 Cup Sugar

3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips

1 Egg

1 Cup Milk

1/3 Cup  Oil

1 t. Vanilla


Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Make a well in the centre.

In another bowl, combine wet ingredients, then pour into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

If you are like me and always in a hurry, just add the wet ingredients straight into the dry ingredients and mix to combine.  Less washing up and it made absolutely no difference to the quality of the muffins.  Just don’t over-mix them!

Fill your greased muffin tins or muffin papers 3/4 full and bake at 180C. for 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly touched.

LunchBox Tips….

These muffins freeze well.  Place muffins in freezer bags or rigid containers. Seal, label and freeze.

Thaw in refrigerator or at room temperature. They can be warmed in the microwave after thawing. Microwave on high for 10 to 15 seconds.
