The BEST Chocolate Chip Muffins

When I think of muffins, I think of a yummy comforting breakfast. I also think that a muffin is an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast. I have so many recipes for muffins, but I really like the ones that use staple ingredients. I try really hard to not make daily trips to the grocery store! But when I'm up in the morning watching kids at 5 am, I can't really go to the store either. So, I always choose the recipes that I have everything for. These muffins are like eating a chocolate chip cookie for breakfast! I like to use mini chocolate chips because they distribute more evenly and your muffin is chock full of chocolatey goodness! Oh boy!

printable recipe
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 chocolate chips (I like semi-sweet mini choco chips)
Preheat oven to 375 and line a 12-hole cupcake pan with liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Mix together flour, sugar, brown sugar, powder, soda & salt in large bowl. Make a well in the middle. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, butter, milk and vanilla. Pour liquid ingredients into the well of the dry mixture and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Fill each cup 2/3 full. Bake for 16-20 minutes or until they bounce back when you touch the top of the cakes. Immediately remove onto wire rack to cool. Yummy!
Happy Cooking!
