Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

If you like Chocolate chip cookies, you will love chocolate chip muffins! I love to eat these in the morning for breakfast or for a late night snack. These delicious muffins are packed with chocolate chips and walnuts. If you do not want to use walnuts, pecans will work just a well. As you can see this recipe calls for an entire bag of chocolate chips, if you do not want that many you can cut down on the amount a little. These muffins are very easy to make, I think I had them in the oven within 5 minutes. If you are looking for a great tasting muffin recipe, give this a try! This recipe makes 12-18 muffins, depending on the size. Enjoy.

2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
½ cup butter (melted and cooled)
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (11 ½ ounce) package milk chocolate chips (or less)
½ cup walnuts (chopped)

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffins cups (or muffin tins). In a large bowl mix together flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
Step 2: In another bowl stir together eggs, milk, butter and vanilla until well blended. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour the milk mixture into the well and stir until well combined. Lightly stir in chocolate chips and chopped nuts.
Step 3: Spoon batter into muffins cups or tins. Place into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

    Hi! I recently came across your blog and just wanted to let you know that your recipes look delicious! My family LOVES Chinese food, but have always had a difficult time making similar versions at home. I can’t wait to try some of your dishes!!!

    These muffins look wonderful! I work really early in the morning and am always looking for something to grab quickly, on my way out. These look perfect!

    I LOVE chocolate, and this looks like the perfect way to use up my chips. More chips in one muffin than in one choco-chip cookie.

    Your blog is fantastic! I, too, like the Chinese food recipes.

    Thanks a million, Liz

    Sprinkle a little sugar on top and the top will crystalize 🙂

    Your muffin recipe is so easy to follow even for non-baker like me. I will give it a try this Holy Week because my mother just gave us a bag of walnuts from her recent trip.

    Now this is a recipe I get down

    I don’t think I’d do them for breakfast, but a dessert would e great.

    I think I’ma start basing my shopping list off of the recipes on this site.

    I have to make wheat-free and dairy-free for one of my children. Your recipe looked fabulous so I had to try it. I was able to substitute the flour for oat flour, rice milk instead of milk, and alternative butter instead of regular butter. I added a few binding agents used in gluten-free baking(x-gum and guar gum). They came out awesome! They are super yummy when warm. All of my family gives this recipe super high ratings! Thanks for the recipe!

    Just threw these in the oven — the batter was awesome and thick enough to keep the choc. chips in place. Can’t wait to try one!!

    Sounds like a teriffic recipe. I always add extra batter into the paper cups, so it over flows a bit. Also, I add extra chocolate chips & nuts on top of the batter. They come out looking a little more plump and the extra bits on top look like it came right from the bakery!

    I made these muffins for my sister for grab and go breakfasts. She really likes them! I followed the recipe, except replaced the butter for 1/4 c. nonfast sour cream and 1/4 c. canola oil. I decreased the chocolate chips to 1 c. They turned out great! I also sprinkled some sugar on top of the muffins before baking. Because I made jumbo size muffins (yielded 6), they took about 25 minutes in the oven. Thank you for the recipe!!
