Recipe Tips & Variations

  • Try different type of chips other than chocolate. Any type of chip like butterscotch, white chocolate or peanut butter chips work too!
  • Try preheating the oven for more evenly baked muffins.
  • If you have a smaller air fryer you may need to cook the muffins in separate batches.
  • Don’t over mix the muffin batter, otherwise, you’ll end up with dense muffins.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of coffee into the batter for more intense chocolate flavor.

Storing & Freezing

Storing: Place the muffins in an airtight container or zip top bag and store in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Freezing: Freeze the muffins in a freezer safe zip top bag or container for up to 4 months. Defrost at room temperature before reheating.
