Chocolate Chunk Muffins & A Giveaway

Chocolate Chunk Muffins - Huckleberry Cookbook

So I got my hands on the Huckleberry cookbook.

Huckleberry is this fantastic bakery and cafe located in Santa Monica, CA. I had the pleasure of going to Huckleberry for breakfast during my last weekend getaway to LA back in July. While the long line we stood in was telling, it wasn’t until I tasted the food for myself that I knew how special Huckleberry really was.

Fast forward a couple of months and I found out that Huckleberry now has a cookbook! Many famous bakeries and cafes have cookbooks, but none that I have seen are like Huckleberry’s. Other bakeries tend to only focus on baked goods only in their cookbooks, but in Huckleberry’s case, they have published more than just cake, scone, and biscuit recipes.

You will find a wealth of recipes from doughnuts, muffins, and pancakes, to galettes, hearty plates with eggs on top, and coffee drinks. Instead of cracking open the recipe book only when you are in that mood to bake, you just might find yourself referring to it for quick dinner ideas, decadent appetizer recipes, and more!

I’ve been cooking recipes from this book left and right, but I just had to share with you this Chocolate Chunk Muffin recipe. Trust me–it’s the good stuff.

Recipe + Giveaway information after the jump! 

Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Yield: 12

Serving Size: 1

Slightly adapted from Chocolate Chunk Muffins in Huckleberry cookbook.


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 200g 60-70% cacao chocolate, chopped.
  • Tips
  • If you only have almond meal on hand, sift the meal until you have a 1/4 cup of fine almond meal. This will work well for the recipe.
  • 1/4" chunks of chocolate will melt well yet keep their shape in the muffin


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cupcake/muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Using a mixer, mix the butter, sugar, and salt together until the butter is light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Then add in the all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, plain yogurt, vanilla extract, and dark chocolate. Mix until just incorporated.
  5. Spoon the batter into the paper liners. Fill each cup to almost the top.
  6. Bake for 22 minutes.
