- 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
- 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup (41g) unsweetened natural cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup (240ml) buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup (120ml) Sugar-Free Chocolate Caramel Truffle Syrup by Skinny Mixes
- Optional: Chocolate chips for added richness
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a muffin tin with paper liners.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, eggs, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and Sugar-Free Chocolate Caramel Truffle Syrup.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
- If desired, fold in a handful of chocolate chips to add an extra burst of chocolate flavour.
- Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about three-quarters full.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

A: Certainly! These muffins are versatile and can be customized to your liking. You can sprinkle some powdered sugar on top, drizzle melted chocolate, or even add a dollop of whipped cream. Get creative and have fun with it!
Q: Why are my muffins not fluffy?
A: There could be a few reasons why your muffins didn't turn out as fluffy as you expected:
- Overmixing: Overmixing the batter can lead to dense and tough muffins. To achieve fluffy muffins, stir the ingredients until just combined. It's okay if there are a few lumps in the batter.
- Incorrect measurements: Using too much flour or not enough leavening agents (baking powder and baking soda) can result in dense muffins. Make sure to measure your ingredients accurately and follow the recipe proportions.
- Baking time and temperature: If your muffins are baking at too high of a temperature or for too long, they may become dry and less fluffy. Check the oven temperature with an oven thermometer and follow the recommended baking time.
- Ingredients at room temperature: Ensure that ingredients like eggs, buttermilk, and oil are at room temperature before mixing them into the batter. Cold ingredients can affect the texture of the muffins.
- Quality of leavening agents: Expired or old baking powder and baking soda may lose their effectiveness, resulting in less fluffy muffins. Check the expiration dates of your leavening agents and replace them if needed.
Q: What is the secret to moist muffins?
A: The secret to moist muffins lies in a few key factors:
- Fat content: Including a good amount of fat in your muffin recipe can contribute to moisture. This can be achieved through ingredients like butter, oil, or yogurt. Experiment with different options to find the balance of flavours and moisture that you prefer.
- Don't overmix: Overmixing can lead to tough and dry muffins. Stir the ingredients until just combined, leaving some lumps in the batter. This will help maintain moisture and create a tender texture.
- Use the right amount of sugar: Sugar not only adds sweetness but also contributes to moisture retention in baked goods. Be sure to follow the recipe's recommended amount of sugar to ensure moist muffins.
- Proper baking time and temperature: Overbaking can result in dry muffins. Make sure to follow the recommended baking time and temperature in your recipe. Use a toothpick or cake tester to check for doneness—when it comes out clean or with a few crumbs, your muffins are ready.
