Double Chocolate Strawberry Muffins

The two delicious words in this title say it all. This is a great recipe for any strawberries that either have a little damage you did not see when picking or somehow make it past the time of being eaten fresh. 


2 cups of whole wheat or whole spelt flour (use white for a more traditional, lighter version)

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 to 1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries 

1 1/4 cup milk

2 eggs

1/2 cup melted butter

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350. Grease muffin tins. Mix all wet ingredients, except berries. Pour dry ingredients, except chips, on top of the wet mixture. Fold in gently. Do not overstir. Gently fold in chocolate chips and strawberries. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on rack. Delicious with more fresh berries on the side!
