Triple Chocolate Muffins

29 Dec

A year or two ago, I tasted the triple chocolate muffins at Tim Horton’s for the first time and they were soooo good. I haven’t had them in a while — they don’t seem to have them in all the Tim Horton’s stores. So I decided to try and make my own… turned out pretty good :) How can you go wrong with a chocolate muffin with 2 kinds of chocolate chips? Yummy :D

Makes 15 small muffins.


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

  • In a medium bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix milk, egg, oil, and vanilla.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients (flour mixture) into the wet ingredients, mixing them well each time you add.
  • Add the chocolate chips to the batter.
  • Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
  • Bake at 175˚C for 15 mins or until the toothpick comes out clean (when you poke the muffin).
