Easy and fast. Rich but not too rich, using Greek yogurt. Sweet, but not too sweet. Using coconut sugar is a lower-glycemic alternative to sugar. Or so I've read. Deep-dark and satisfying for the choc-o-holics in all of us. A recipe I have worked over and over to perfect. This being the best thus far. Best when cooled down and chips have firmed again. Depends on your likes.

  • Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt together in a bowl. Fold in chocolate chips.

  • Combine buttermilk, yogurt, oil, eggs, vinegar, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture and mix well. Batter should be thick; scoop into the prepared muffin cups using a tablespoon until about 3/4-full. Sprinkle sliced almonds on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed and centers are still moist and gooey, 17 to 20 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

You can also use dark chocolate chips.

Substitute almond milk or soy milk for the buttermilk, if desired.

Make sure to use gluten-free vanilla extract.

Makes about 14 or so depending how full you fill the cups; you may need to use more than 1 muffin tin.
