Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


1-1/2 dozen

I've developed many mouthwatering muffin recipes through the years, but this one remains a favorite. With their rich chocolate taste, these muffins also make a terrific dessert.—Sandy Szwarc, Albuquerque, New Mexico


  • 1-2/3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 cup oat bran
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients. In another bowl, beat the eggs, yogurt, butter and orange zest. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
