Having bakery style chocolate chip muffins for breakfast on the weekend with my family is one of my favorite things to do. However, choc chip muffins pack a whole lot of calories and saturated fat that aren’t all that great for you. And if you’re going to eat all those calories they might as well be good, healthy calories.

That’s why I’m presenting you with this healthified version of a classic recipe. These healthy chocolate chip muffins are made with greek yogurt for some extra protein, whole wheat flour for fiber, oil instead of butter, and no sugar.

You can find the nutrition facts for these muffins at the bottom of the recipe.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins with No Sugar

Since there’s no sugar in this recipe these muffins are naturally sweetened with honey or maple syrup. It doesn’t matter which one you use. From my experience they both taste almost exactly the same when being used to sweeten muffins.




You’ll notice that there’s a small amount of chocolate chips in this recipe compared to others and that’s because this recipe yields 9 muffins. Also, chocolate can sometimes be overpowering in muffins so I like to put just enough so that there’s only about two in every bite. But if you prefer a really chocolate-y muffin then feel free to add more!

Like I said above, this recipe yields 9 muffins and that’s on purpose because if you were to divide the batter to make 12 muffins they wouldn’t be these beautifully jumbo chocolate chip muffins with gorgeously big tops. They’d be small and you know I love me some good bakery style muffins.

Was the 1/2 a tablespoon a correct measurement for the baking powder correct? Because we made it with that measurement today and the muffins tasted rather sour…

Yes, it’s correct. I’m not sure what could have caused that. Several people have made them without any problems. Check out these reviews on Pinterest.

Can you use all purpose flour and regular milk as substitutes to the non dairy milk and wheat flour? I was trying to use what I had at home.

If I don’t have 2% Greek Yogurt, but i have 0% Greek Yogurt, will it work as a substitute?

The fat in this recipe is important and I believe if you used nonfat Greek yogurt it would most likely change the taste and texture of the muffins but I don’t know how drastic this change would be as I have not tried this myself. So it might work, it might not.
