Chocolate Chip Muffins
One of my friends sent me a tweet on Twitter last week asking me if I had a good recipe for chocolate chip muffins. I checked the blog and realized I have never made chocolate chip muffins. I didn’t want to let her down, so I went into the kitchen and made a batch of chocolate chip muffins.
The vanilla muffin batter is thick and studded with chocolate chips. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but milk chocolate chips would also work well. The batter was easy to mix together and the muffins only took about 20 minutes to bake. Josh smelled the chocolate aroma and thought I was baking cookies again. He was surprised when a pulled out a dozen beautiful chocolate chip muffins.
We usually don’t eat chocolate for breakfast, but we had to taste the muffins to make sure they were good enough for my friend. Everyone deserves a breakfast treat every once in awhile:) The vanilla scented muffins are dense and dotted with chocolate chips. If you are looking for an extra special breakfast treat, try chocolate chip muffins. They also make a great snack or dessert.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips ( I used semi-sweet)
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. Set pan aside.
2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt.
3. In medium bowl stir together melted butter, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract until well blended. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour the liquid mixture into the well and gently stir until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
