Chocolate Chip Muffins

Previously, I shared my Basic Muffin Recipe with you. (You can find it HERE.) As promised, I wanted to offer you some ideas on how you could take that recipe, toss in some additional ingredients, and create dozens of unique and delicious muffins.

I had a bag of milk chocolate chips in my pantry, so I thought I would kick things off with these Chocolate Chip Muffins.

Essentially, I just followed the base recipe, added in some milk chocolate chips and cinnamon, and topped the muffins off with a sprinkle of coarse sugar for good measure.

It’s really that easy!

And while I prefer milk chocolate chips, you can use any variety you like. You could even get a little crazy and try peanut butter chips, or butterscotch chips, or caramel chips. The choice is yours.

No matter how you make these tasty muffins, this is another recipe I know you’re going to enjoy! Here are a few things you’ll need to get started.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Muffins:

Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with baking spray or line the cups with baking papers, then spray with baking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips, and cinnamon. Set aside. I’ve included a printable recipe card below for a full rundown of the recipe ingredients and instructions.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, sour cream, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold the two together gently. Mix until just barely/almost combined. This is the key to light and tender muffins. Do not overmix.

Spoon the batter into each muffin paper until about 3/4ths of the way full. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Bake for 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the muffin comes out clean.

Remove the muffins from the pan when they are cool enough to handle. Allow them to finish cooling on a wire rack.
