I can’t believe how delicious these moist einkorn whole-wheat chocolate chip muffins are. And I’m sure you’ll agree.

For real, I’m not exaggerating! These muffins are so scrumptious and taste too good to be healthy. But they are. They’re just as perfect for breakfast as dessert.

You won’t be able to resist eating more than one, unless you have very strong willpower. When it comes to muffins, mine isn’t that strong, I guess..

What Makes These Muffins So Amazing?

In addition to their being so yummy, these moist einkorn whole-wheat chocolate chip muffins are fluffy and light. And they’re made solely with whole-wheat flour – yet they aren’t too dense or heavy.

Also, what makes these muffins so amazing beside their addictive quality; is that they are very nutritious. Yes, they do contain chocolate chips, but only a small amount.

Of course, you can leave them out if you choose to. But the recipe only calls for 1/4 cup – which isn’t much at all. Therefore I feel these muffins are qualified to be called healthy.

On the other hand, some of you may want more chocolate chips than what the recipe calls for. You can certainly add more if you’d like.

A Sense of Trepidation While Creating This Recipe..

I actually felt a sense a trepidation while creating this recipe. Actually, I kind of feel this while creating most of my recipes. It’s a feeling of not wanting to go through with something, even though a part of you wants to.

First of all, I’ve only recently started working with einkorn flour. It’s pretty much interchangeable for regular flour, but it has its differences too.

Such as a sandwich bread recipe I was attempting to create with it. I felt everything was going well, until I pulled the pan out of the oven, lol. The top of the loaf was really flat.

Wish I Did My Research Beforehand

Later on, I researched on why that could’ve happened. Turns out that you can’t knead dough for long, if it contains einkorn flour. And you have to be more gentle with it.

That makes sense – being that einkorn flour is very low in gluten. Therefore the low amount of gluten strands can cause this kind of reaction.

Well, I’m glad I know now when I attempt another bread recipe with this flour.

You don’t need anything but simple and basic ingredients that you most likely have on hand already.

  • Einkorn Whole-Wheat Flour: I used Jovial organic whole-wheat flour for this recipe. Regular whole-wheat flour should work fine also, instead of the einkorn flour. You may just need to adjust the amount of milk some..
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Chocolate Chips: Regular or Dairy Free.
  • Light Brown Sugar: Adds a light caramel taste that complements the Einkorn whole wheat flour. If you don’t have any on hand, just substitute regular sugar.
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: This ingredient, along with the baking powder and baking soda; is essential for maximum rise and fluffiness. You don’t want to leave it out..
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Adds a light savory and rich taste to the muffins. In addition, it makes the muffins more healthier. Can’t beat that! But you can use regular oil instead, if you prefer.
  • Light Tasting Cooking Oil such as organic canola, vegetable oil, etc.
  • Milk: Regular or dairy free.
