Units Scale
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 2 TBS Oil (Avocado or Olive oil)
  • 2 TBS Butter (Melted)
  • 3 TBS Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Bob's red mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Dutch Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

Cream cheese layer

  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 TBS Sugar

Crumble topping

  • 1/2 cup Bob's red mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1/4 cup Dutch Cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup Mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup White Chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and place paper liners in a Large 6 pan muffin tin
  2. In a stand mixer combine the egg, sugars, Greek yogurt, oil, butter, milk and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and Cocoa powder.
  4. With the stand mixer on low slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet. Once fully combined mix in the chocolate chips.
  5. Divide this batter between the muffin tins.
  6. In another bowl combine the cream cheese, egg, and sugar. It's okay if it's a bit lumpy. Divide this out on top of the batter filled cups.
  7. In another bowl combine the flour, sugar, butter, and cocoa powder to make the crumble. I like to mix it and form a handful into a small log in my hand. It will come together but be easily crumbled. Crumble half of this over the cream cheese layer.
  8. Combine the mini chocolate chips and white chocolate chips together and sprinkle over the first layer of crumble. Then sprinkle the rest of the crumble over the top.
  9. Bake the muffins for 25-30 minutes until the center batter is fully cooked.
  10. Let rest for 10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. Once cool serve with coffee or milk.
