    Something I joke about when introducing a new muffin recipe (not this one!) in my new cookbook out this fall is the gap between the muffins we gaze at in a coffee shop case and those we make at home. Why is one towering, glossy and plush and the ones I make for breakfast so… beige? I mean, I do know. When I’m the one baking the muffins, I balk at all of the refined sugar, flour, and oil needed to make them that pretty. So I stuff them with oats and dried fruit and whole-grain everything and then yes, they’re heavy and beige. But as I was staring at these beauties at my local bagel shop the other morning, I decided: enough.

    Sometimes you need a chocolate muffin that’s hardly even pretending that it’s not just cake. Sure, it’s got yogurt in it. Sure, the sweetness is held in check. But I decided that I needed a recipe in my repertoire for a chocolate muffin as pretty as I’m tempted to buy for the days only a dark chocolate muffin will do. It was a very good idea; not a single person in my family has minded as I tested and retested these to get them exactly right for us. They fit all of my baking rules: they’re one-bowl, use no fussy ingredients, and even pass the left-it-out-on-the-counter-overnight test. The muffins are still shockingly plush (even if, of course, a touch more dry) in the morning. Finally, you can reduce your commitment level easily: halved, it makes six muffins. I hope they set your week off perfectly.

    What about brownie mix with mini chips. For those of us who don't like from scratch.. Your right about the double Choco muffins are the best!

    But not Walmarts or Safeways, yuk
