Ingredients

This 2 ingredient chocolate muffin is made with 2 main ingredients and 1 optional ingredient. The two Ingredients you will need to to make these Chocolate Muffins are:

Chocolate - This is the main ingredient of this muffin recipe. So use any of your favorite high-quality chocolate. Chocolate bars or chips, both can be used in this recipe.

Eggs - It is the second important ingredient of this muffin recipe. You will need to use eggs at room temperature.

Salt (optional) - I have added a pinch of salt to this muffin recipe (to balance and enhance the sweet flavors), which is completely optional.

Variation

  • Chocolate: I used couverture (baking) chocolate for baking these muffins. They just taste so good. But you can also use regular chocolate bars. Also, I have used a combination of dark (60% cocoa) and semi-sweet chocolate. You can also use milk chocolate or white chocolate for making this muffin recipe. Also, chocolate chips or chunks can be used in place of real chocolate.

  • Eggs: If you don’t eat eggs, then you can swap it with 3/4 cup of mashed sweet potatoes, or pumpkin puree. You can also use 3 bananas (pureed).

  • Nuts: You can also add chopped walnuts or hazelnuts to the muffin batter.

Tips and tricks to make the best 2-Ingredient Chocolate Muffins

  1. These muffins taste good as they are, but if you want to enjoy them like souffle then you can also dust these chocolate muffins with icing sugar and top with a couple of strawberries or raspberries.

  2. Grease the top of the muffin pan oil with some oil, this way muffins won’t stick to the top and would also help in easy removal.

  3. Make sure to not deflate the egg white while folding the mixture into melted chocolate.

  4. Let the melted chocolate cool down slightly before adding yolks.

  5. Always add some water or beans to the empty cups to get evenly baked muffins.

  6. White chocolate: To make white chocolate muffins, replace the dark chocolate with white baking chocolate.
