Ellie's Kitchen: Dark Chocolate Orange Muffins


(It's actually from, a blog I am now addicted to.)
Dark Chocolate Orange Muffins

Dark Chocolate Orange Muffins

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Serves: 12 muffins
Dense but moist, packed with dark chocolate, with a hint of orange and vanilla flavor, and the nuttiness from the spelt flour.
150 g all purpose flour
150 g organic spelt flour
100 g organic raw cane sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 Tbsp orange zest (1 big orange or 2 small)
1 tsp vanilla extract
80 ml orange juice (1 big orange or 2 small)
100 g sour cream
100 g whipping ream
2 organic free range eggs
60 g vegetable oil (I used peanut oil) or melted butter
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and line a muffin pan or individual muffin cups.
  2. In a medium bowl mix the sifted flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In another bowl mix well the eggs with the sugar, sour cream, whipping cream, oil or butter, Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing lightly, just until the flour is no longer visible. Do not overmix!
  4. At the end add the chocolate chips, previously tossed lightly in the flour.
  5. Fill the muffin cups with batter and bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until nice and golden brown on top and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  6. Let cool on a griddle (but they're awesome warm, when the chocolate just melts in your hands and mouth).
They can be frozen, individually wrapped in plastic, and then warmed up in the oven ready for breakfast.
