  • 150ml natural yogurt
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl, then stir in the chocolate chips and sugar. Add the beaten eggs, yogurt and butter, and stir to combine. It doesn’t matter if the mixture looks a bit lumpy, it’s more important not to overmix or the muffins will turn out tough.

  2. Fill the paper cases and bake for 20-25 mins until risen and golden brown. Transfer to a rack to cool – or eat slightly warm. Will keep for three days in an airtight container.

So quick and easy to make and turn out perfect every time. We love these muffins! Enough to make 12 of a decent size but never last long in our house.

Quick and very easy. Always have Greek yoghurt to hand so put two big spoonfuls in a measuring jug and made it up to 150mls with milk, well mixed. Seems to do the trick. Yummy

Just got my 12 yr old to make these, really easy and turned out delicious - love the slight crunch to the outside that supermarket ones don't have!^^ I can imagine a good base recipe for lots of muffin flavours. Thank you!

Just did those, took 15min, and they turned out great. I substituted half of the butter for ca. 20ml oil, and added some 100g yoghurt more. They are incredibly light and fluffy.

I am surprised that the are no ratings for this recipe. These only take 10 minutes to make and they did disappear in 5 minutes! Great muffin recipe

How would I go about making these into double chocolate chip muffins? How much cocoa powder would I need to add?

Thanks for your question. We haven't tested this but would suggest replacing 50g self-raising flour with 50g cocoa and adding 1/2 tsp baking powder. The rest of the ingredients stay the same.
