Dark chocolate and orange mini muffins

Dark Chocolate Orange Muffins
Recipe from Dairy Goodness

Today, at the behest of my daughter M I tried this recipe out - Dark chocolate with orange muffins

Luckily, we had all the ingredients at home and since its bite size, we gobbled quite a bit in a jiffy! So while the younger one was at play school (she's away for an 2 and a half hours) M and I got cracking and tried this for breakfast today. This recipe makes about 24-30 mini muffins


1 cup (250 ml) all-purpose flour
1 cup (250 ml) whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp (7 ml) baking powder
1/4 tsp (1 ml) each, baking soda and salt
2/3 cup (150 ml) granulated sugar
1/3 cup (75 ml) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups (300 ml) milk
1 egg
2 tsp (10 ml) grated orange zest
1/3 cup (75 ml) freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup (50 ml) melted butter
1/3 cup (75 ml) miniature chocolate chips

The How to:

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Butter nonstick miniature muffin pans or line with paper liners.
In a large bowl, combine all-purpose and whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together sugar, and cocoa; gradually whisk in milk until blended. Whisk in egg, orange zest, orange juice and butter. Pour over dry ingredients and sprinkle with chocolate chips; stir just until moistened.
Spoon into prepared muffin pan filling 24 deep cups or 36 shallow cups. Bake, in batches as necessary, for about 15 min or until tops are firm to the touch. Let cool in pan for 5 min. Transfer to rack to cool completely.

Let me know if you tried it! And how many you ate within 45 secs!
