This morning my son was home sick from school and said he was craving a chocolate chip muffin. I offered to make him some, and I was thinking out loud that I don’t think I had ever made chocolate chip muffins. He asked if I could just use chocolate chips instead of blueberries in the muffin recipe we love. That is what I decided to do, except I decided to add a little vanilla to see how it would taste. And they tasted amazing!
This recipe has never let me down, and always comes out perfect. It is so easy to make, the only downfall is that it doesn’t make many. I am always a little hesitant to double recipes and have yet to try that with this one. I usually just make two batches.
So here is what you need to make these amazing muffins:
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup (less) milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Grease a muffin tin. I prefer to use shortening, I’m old school like that I guess but you can use spray as well. Or you can use muffin liners.
Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a medium size mixing bowl. Sift all ingredients together.
Add 1/3 cup oil to a 1 cup measuring cup. Add 1 egg, then add enough milk until it measures 1 cup.
Mix oil mixture and vanilla into dry ingredients.
Mix in chocolate chips, and scoop into muffin tin. I like to use a large cookie scoop just because I make quite a mess when I use a spoon. It works really well this way.
Fill to the top, and as you can see it only made seven muffins.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until done. Once muffins have cooked for a few minutes I like to sprinkle coarse sugar on to each muffin and continue baking.
They look so good don’t they? Yum! Let them cool in the pan before trying to remove. I use a knife to just try to loosen the muffin tops at this point.
My son was very happy to have these homemade chocolate chip muffins to satisfy his craving! And so was I 😋
