Chocolate Pomegranate Muffins

You can easily add pomegranate seeds to your favorite muffin recipe, but if you have a special event planned and you like chocolate and fruit paired together you might want to give this recipe a try!


2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup oil

2 eggs

3/4 sour cream

1/2 cup milk

1 cup chocolate chips

1 heaping cup pomegranate seeds


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease and flour muffin tin or line with cupcake liners. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, milk and oil. Stir wet ingredients gently into dry ingredients, along with chocolate chips and pomegrantate seeds, being careful not to overmix. Drop batter into prepared tin, filling each cup about 3/4 full. Bake about 20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. If you like you could make a chocolate ganache frosting by microwaving 3/4 cup dark chocolate pieces and 3/4 cup cream on medium, stirring frequently, until melted together and smooth. Dip muffins into ganache or spoon over individual muffins then sprinkle with more pomegranate seeds.
