Chocolate Chip Muffins

Summer is right around the corner and you'd rather spend your time outside than inside cooking breakfast. I am not really a breakfast person, but if my food is in the mini form I am more likely to eat it. Muffins are a great breakfast food no matter what your age. They are bite sized and are kid friendly. They also great for those days when you don't have a lot of time in the morning or during a commute to work. I don't know anyone who doesn't like chocolate chips so this flavor is a win for all.

With only a few ingredients and minimal time you will have muffins that are sure to be enjoyed by all. The best part about it is you can substitute your favorite fruit or nut for the chocolate chips for an option that is a little more healthy.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins


1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
2  eggs (room temperature)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Nestle milk chocolate morsels


For the Chocolate Chip Muffins:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12 count muffin pan with cupcake liners or spray the cups with a non-stick bakers spray.

1. In a microwave safe bowl melt the stick of butter and let cool to room temperature.
2. Using a stand mixer on low speed combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt
3. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract.
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients on low speed. (do not overmix)
5. Fold the milk chocolate morsels into the mixture
6. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out batter in cups
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in muffin cups on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from muffin cups. Cool completely on wire wracks.

Many life changes have happened over the last few months. Until further notice, I will be posting once a month. I'm glad to be back blogging and have missed all of my blogging friends and blog readers.
