I really love the double chocolate muffins, this is one of the high usage recipe and is best to bake when anyone in my family craving for chocolate cake or when I need to prepare give-away. I had used this recipe to adapt into different varieties like dulce de leche coconut muffins, and also these chocolate oreo muffins, the rest still in my backlog lol.
I wanted to try out a more "healthier" version so I replaced melted butter with vegetable oil and buttermilk with low fat fresh milk.
Recipe modified from here.
Ingredients : (for about 8-9 muffins, bottom dimension of muffin case 5cm)
85g self raising flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
35g cocoa powder
1/4 tsp vanilla powder (use 1/2 tsp if you are using vanilla extract/essence and put under ingredients
90g castor sugar (you may increase to 110g if you prefer sweeter)
80g chocolate cream oreo, crushed
60g vegetable oil
29g chocolate cream oreo, 1 packet (to sprinkle)
1. Sift (A) into a mixing bowl and add in 80g crushed oreo, stir and mix well.
2. Whisk (B) until well combine.
3. Pour (A) into (B) and folded gentle to mix well.
4. Fill up the muffin cases 60% full with the mixture and sprinkle 1 packet of oreo on top.
5. Bake in pre-heated oven at 170C for 15-20 mins.
I think the muffins are not as fragrant as using melted butter, not as tender as using buttermilk but still soft and moist. For a healthier version, this is still very delicious.

Hi Jess, another great muffin recipe you are sharing here. Your tips on the substitution of fats in the recipe is a great help. I like healthier versions of food. Maybe we can try using 50/50 of butter and oil for better flavour.ReplyDelete

I tried your recipe yesterday and they look so lovely. I put mini-Oreo as deco and it really look very pretty. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
However, I have a queation to ask: For your "80g chocolate cream oreo, crushed" do you remove the cream of the Oreo biscuits? I remove them and my girls were screaming at me, so I told them that I would verify with you ;o).
Hi Felicia thanks for trying out the recipe and hope you like it. No, I didnt remove the cream, I love it with the cream too so I will try to retain if possible heeheehee....Delete
Actually from the muffins photos, you still able to see the cream in the cookies, I was using chocolate cream oreo.Delete
