Like an empty road! A very empty one! Hopefully, now that college is starting to wrap up for the academic year. I will have some spare time to dedicate to this little corner of the web. Starting with sharing these delicious sugar free double chocolate muffins.


No sugar.


The lack of sugar does not stop these muffins from being sweet. I used a zero calorie natural sweetener. Natvia is the one I use but please feel free to use your own favourite brand. I work with Natvia on Instagram but this is not a sponsored post. I just like sweet food with fewer calories. But then, don’t we all?


Apart from the lack of sugar, there is nothing usual in these muffins. I used buttermilk to make them tender and vegetable oil to keep them soft. The rest of the ingredients are pretty standard. Flour, cocoa, eggs some rising agents. And a touch of vanilla to round everything out.

Double Chocolate.

We have dark rich cocoa in these muffins, to give them that deep chocolate flavour that only cocoa can give. Then we have dark chocolate chips added to them. So every bite is packed with them. You will never know there is no sugar in these lovely muffins.
