Best Ever CBD Chocolate Muffins Recipe: Baking With CBD
Vicky here – content creator for ULU and avid home baker! If you’re like me, then you just love any excuse to eat sweet treats for breakfast. I also love CBD baking! So, what better way to indulge yourself in the morning than with gooey, moist CBD chocolate muffins?
So, this week I’ll be sharing with you my tried and tested recipe for chocolate muffins enriched with ULU 5% CBD oil.
Skip straight to recipe and method
CBD baking is a relatively new trend in the health and wellness industry. However, if you ask me, the two go hand in hand. In fact, I’ve been baking with CBD pretty much for as long as I’ve been taking cannabidiol.
CBD baking is a great way to take your daily dose and also have an excuse to give yourself a treat. Obviously, I’m not recommending that you eat chocolate muffins every day! However, this is just one way you can treat yourself!
Also, If you’re someone who really doesn’t enjoy the taste of CBD, then using food or drink to mask the subtle grassy flavour is a great way to overcome this hurdle. In this recipe, we’re using plenty of cocoa powder and sugar – so don’t worry, you won’t taste any of the cannabidiol oil here!

About my CBD chocolate muffin recipe
I’ve spent a long time perfecting this recipe! Muffins can be difficult to get right, and whilst there are lots of muffin recipes out there, some fall desperately short if you ask me! But don’t fear, you can use this CBD chocolate muffin recipe to create the perfect gooey muffins that are indulgent, yet beautifully light and airy. They also go perfectly with a nice warm cup of coffee first thing in the morning!
Also, speaking of coffee – you might notice that I’ve included a teaspoon of instant coffee in this recipe!
Don’t be alarmed – I promise you won’t taste it in the final result. Adding a small amount of coffee to any chocolate recipe is simply a sure-fire way to make the chocolate pop. The best bakers are quickly realising that coffee brings out the deep, rich flavours of the chocolate– enhancing the flavours and making the taste more luxurious.
ULU 5% CBD oil
For this recipe, I’ve chosen to add 18 drops of ULU 5% premium CBD oil. That makes 2 drops of cannabidiol per muffin – a total of 3.2mg per muffin.
If you’d like, you can experiment with the amount of CBD in this recipe. You could increase or decrease the number of CBD drops depending on your usual daily dose and the amount of CBD you’d like to take. Simply divide the total number of drops by 9 to work out how much cannabidiol each muffin will contain.
I’ve chosen ULU CBD oil for this recipe. Of course, I’m a content creator for ULU, but I’m also an avid CBD user and have been for a number of years. So, please don’t assume any bias when I say that ULU CBD truly is second to none.
I love using ULU CBD because they’re upfront about the amount of CBD in every drop of their oils – something that can be really difficult to work out with some other retailers. ULU also maintain the highest standards of production in every product they sell. They also offer only organic, EU sourced CBD, whilst striving for ultimate quality and sustainability. So, if you haven’t tried ULU CBD products, you’re truly missing out!
CBD chocolate muffins recipe
(makes 9 cbd chocolate muffins)
190g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
1.5 tsp baking powder
2 medium eggs
60g caster sugar
30g brown sugar
130ml whole milk
50g chocolate chips
50ml olive oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp instant coffee
18 drops of ULU 5% CBD oil
CBD chocolate muffins method
Heat the oven to 180 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
Line a muffin tin with muffin cases – you can always use cupcake cases if you don’t have muffin ones. These will make slightly smaller muffins.
Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and coffee into a mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl of jug, whisk together the eggs, sugars, milk, oil, vanilla extract, and 18 drops of ULU 5% CBD oil until well mixed.
Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix gently until combined.
Add the chocolate chips and mix gently until evenly spread.
Spoon the CBD chocolate muffin mixture into the muffin or cupcake cases until around 2/3 of the way full – this will leave some room for the muffins to rise.
Bake in the centre of the preheated oven for around 30 mins until a skewer inserted into the middle of the muffins comes out clean.
Remove and leave to cool before enjoying!
