How to Make Chocolate Chip Muffins
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
- Preheat the oven and prepare the cupcake tins.
- Whisk the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls.
- Combine the wet and dry mixtures.
- Add chocolate chips.
- Scoop the batter into the tins.
- Cool and enjoy!
- Do not over-mix the muffin batter!
- I use semisweet chocolate chips, but you can swap them for milk or dark chocolate chips.
Use 1½ cups of your favorite type of chocolate chips! Mini, milk, dark, semisweet, white, or a combination would be delicious.
Yes! After 5 minutes at 425°F, keep the muffins in the oven and reduce the temperature to 350°F. Don’t take the muffins out! This initial burst of high heat creates tall and crackly muffin tops.
Absolutely! Bake mini muffins at 350°F for 11-13 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Use 1½ cups of your favorite add-ins like blueberries, chopped strawberries, dried fruits, or chopped nuts.
- Always use the toothpick test to make sure your muffins are fully baked.
- Make sure you measure every ingredient perfectly! Baking is a science, so you don’t want to throw anything off.
- You can skip the coarse sugar garnish, but it’s a great final touch that adds a little crunch and sweetness.
Soft, fluffy muffins that always rise to the perfect shape. These are the best way to start the day!
What kind of milk should I use?
Use buttermilk for rich and tender muffins. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, any dairy or non-dairy milk will work.
Can I make these muffins gluten-free?
I haven’t tested it, but you can certainly try replacing the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free 1:1 flour substitute.
Can I freeze these muffins?
These muffins freeze beautifully. Place them in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months.
