Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins

If you’d like the perfect excuse to indulge in chocolate for breakfast, then you’ll love these Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins. Bake a batch and serve them for breakfast, brunch, tea time or as a dessert. The rich homemade chocolate batter is filled with chocolate chips then topped with more just before baking. Serve them warm or at room temperature, there’s just no wrong way to savor a moist chocolate chip filled chocolate muffin.

I’ve heard it said that coffee cake was invented just so we’d have an excuse to eat cake for breakfast. I’m totally fine with that concept. I think muffins are much the same way as they’re very much like a cupcake, aren’t they? These Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins are my youngest son’s favorite and he will eat one at any time of day he gets a craving for something sweet. Double the chocolate, double the love.
