Chocolate chip muffin recipe

There is nothing like a little chocolate in the morning! How do I justify that? With this Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe of course. 🙂

If a recipe has “muffin” in the recipe that means its for the morning (a cupcake would be a dessert). That’s my reasoning and I’m sticking to it!

My kids have been out of school and have been asking for a new baked goodie, so I decided to throw together some chocolate chip muffins. I bet you have everything you need to make these delicious muffins in your pantry and fridge.

I added some fancy coarse sugar to the tops of mine, but that is totally optional.

Make sure you have a good pan to make chocolate chip muffins.

If you don’t already have a set, we love this  silicon muffin pan, I highly suggest them. I love baking in mine (and they are still holding up after years of use).

You can use what you prefer but just make sure you have a good pan. I have found a good pan is the start to a good recipe.

I have the Rachael Ray muffin pans here. There are several other options of muffin pans and many are on sale!

Another idea is to use a mini-muffin pan. Mini muffins are fun to eat and another tasty option for breakfast or brunch. Maybe even a snack.

Keep in mind the smaller size will take less time to cook and the total cooking time will need to be adjusted. They are faster to cook and easier to eat.

I love my Wilton mini muffin tins, but for just a few dollars more you can get a silicone pan. These are great because the mini muffins just pop out so much easier.

Jumbo chocolate chip muffins are freezer friendly!

This batch made about 18 large muffins, so if you don’t need that many all at once, remember that they freeze great.

Just zap in the microwave when you’re ready to eat them. It is so handy having these in the freezer for a quick breakfast idea.

We have made these for vacation and traveling and it has helped us save a ton of money. I often make a double batch just to have some to freeze.

What is the difference between a muffin and a cupcake?

How do you make light and fluffy muffins?

Baking powder makes muffins light and fluffy. Always make sure to use the exact amount.

If you use too much, they will collapse. However, if you use too little they will not rise.

It is super important to never leave this ingredient out and to always use the exact amount.
