  • Heat semisweet chocolate and butter together in a saucepan over low heat until melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for about 10 minutes. Lightly beat eggs into cooled chocolate mixture.

  • Whisk chocolate-butter mixture, buttermilk, sugar, sour cream, and vanilla extract together in a bowl.

  • Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; form a well in the center of the flour mixture. Stir chocolate mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Fold chocolate chips into batter. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 18 minutes.

We liked these. I made half the recipe and got 8 generous sized muffins. I used fat free Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream and added 2 tbs instant coffee because I like how it enhances the flavor of chocolate. I only had unsweetened chocolate squares and found the muffins to be as sweet as I would like them. They are moist and lighter than I expected. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Didn't really appeal to me too dry. Plus the "Probiotic" benefit is zero after being in a 400 degree oven. Read More

It's doubtful that probiotics would survive 18 minutes at 400 degrees! Read More
