We Love a Portable Snack!

I love baking with the kids and a favorite is some homemade chocolate chip muffins (we’re suckers for anything with chocolate). We make Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies all the time, so it was nice to change it up and make muffins.

Why we love these muffins:

  • Quick and easy. These chocolate chip muffins are ready in about 20 minutes!
  • Yummy. They are so soft and moist and definitely another keeper recipe!
  • Portable. Muffins are a great take-and-go snack and perfect for freezing for later.

If you’re looking for a yummy, easy breakfast recipe, this is a good one!

How to Make Chocolate Chip Muffins

  1. PREP. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. DRY INGREDIENTS. In a large bowl mix flour, brown sugar, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  3. WET INGREDIENTS. In a medium bowl, beat together milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla until well combined. Add dry ingredients and beat until just combined. DO NOT over-mix.
    • Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. BAKE. Spoon the batter into a muffin tin filled with cupcake liners. Fill them to about ⅔ or 3/4 full.
    • Sprinkle tops with sugar and bake for 16-18 minutes.
    • Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center. When it comes out clean or with a few crumbs they are done.
  5. Cool. Allow the muffins to cool a bit in the pan before placing them on a wire rack to cool completely.

Pro Tip!

Before baking, sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top with the sugar—this makes the muffins look prettier when they come out of the oven!

Recipe Tips

Keep the following tips in mind to produce the best recipe for chocolate chip muffins every time!

  • Liners. Simple paper liners or silicone liners work well in the recipe. The higher the quality of the paper liners the less the baked muffins will stick to it when removed. Or bake the cupcakes directly in the muffin pan which creates a nice browned crust.
  • Different-sized muffins. For jumbo muffins bake for 5 minutes at 425°F and then reduce the temperature to 350°F and bake for another 20-25 minutes. For mini muffins bake for only 10-12 minutes at 350°F. You may wish to use mini chocolate chips. (Times may vary slightly depending on your oven.)
  • Nuts. Add chopped nuts for even more flavor and texture.
