YUUMMMYYYY!!! I made a few changes though. I added an extra 1/4 cup milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 heaping tablespoon of brown sugar an extra 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet choc. chips. My kids LOVED them. Very moist and sweet. Next time, I may try to make them a LITTLE healthier by using w/w flour, applesauce instead of oil and skim milk.Read More
This recipe was easy to make, but that was the only good part about it. When they were done and cooled, I did not care for them. I was disappointed with the results because this recipe looked pretty good. You can try it if you want, but I don't recommend it.Read More

This is a great basic recipe for chocolate chip muffins. They turned out perfect. It is a great base to tweak however you like and experiment with....as they are, they're pretty foolproof. I added a splash of vanilla extract, used a full cup of milk, and made a little less than 1/4 of my cup of sugar brown sugar. I used about 3/4 of a cup of chocolate chips, but then sprinkled a few extra on the top of each muffin before I baked them for added chocolate as well as aesthetics. They turned out picture-perfect. Next time I'll probably add a pinch of cocoa to my batter and give that a shot. These were great!
Don’t listen to the negative reviews! This was a fine fast recipe! I followed it exactly (okay I used canola – does anyone buy vegetable oil anymore?) and I added a splash more milk before I filled the muffin cups. Here are my notes: the batter will be extremely thick, use a teaspoon and spoon it in. I used mini-muffin cups and I filled only ½ full. They rise a lot! I baked mini’s for exactly 11 minutes & they weren’t very brown on top but they were completely cooked and they were golden brown on the stump. It is fast and easy and good. This is not a gourmet muffin but kids and coworkers will be happy.
Wonderful muffin! Not overly sweet so they're perfect for breakfast! I added a heaping tsp. of vanilla and used 1 cup of buttermilk instead of the 3/4 cup of milk which made these very moist. I also used a full cup of Hershey's mini chocolate chips. I baked these in a Texas sized muffin tin lined with paper liners and got a half dozen huge muffins. I topped them with turbinado sugar before popping them in the oven and baked them at 400 for 20 minutes. They smelled great and tasted even better!
I like them very much. Easy to make. I did add some extra milk bc the batter was sooo thick. I feel like although they are very good, that there might be something small missing?? All in all though, quick and easy to make and a great treat! ***Update, I followed another reviewers suggestion and added a splash of vanilla and this time, I used canola oil instead of veg oil, and I swear, they were that much better. Awesome!

This is a really good basic muffin recipe. I read some of the reviews so I increased my milk to 1 cup, added 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1 T of vanilla. They were moist and delicious. I saw some people had a problem with the muffins sticking so I gave my non-stick pan a light coating of cooking spray and had no trouble at all. I also added a pinch of brown sugar and a couple of chocolate chips to the top of the muffins during the last 5 mn. of baking time. They looked as well as tasted great!
I did not like the texture of this muffin. Mine was more like a biscuit with chocolate chips. Something must be wrong with the ingredients, the batter was very firm. Perhaps something like melted butter is missing? I also think that I tasted the baking powder! The taste was bland even after adding vanilla, again, I think that melted butter may add flavor. I really do not think that extra milk would add that flavor it is lacking. I may try this again and add some ingredients.
Excellent recipe. I did add the extra 1/4 cup milk and a few more chocolate chips. They were perfect texture and mine did brown. I would say that if you like your muffins really sugary and sweet that you should probably add more sugar. These were fine for me though. Will definitely make them again
Wow these muffins dissapeared so fast! They were just perfect - moist, fluffy, and just the right amount of sweetness. I recomend them to anyone looking for a tasty breakfast for their family.
I did not like this recipe very much. I followed the other users review and it still didn't turn out right. It tasted more like cornbread then a sweet muffin and all the chocoalate chips sunk to the bottom.
Albino muffins is what I got with this recipe. Texture wise, they were great. The batter itself tasted good, before baking, but it seemed to lose some of its flavor during cooking. I halved the recipe, used a whole egg, 1/2 c milk, and 1/2 c chips, tsp vanilla. This made 9 muffins and they only needed about 15 minutes to cook. I may tinker with this recipe, I still prefer the boxed.
These are DELICIOUS! I did what other users suggested and added the milk, brown sugar, vanilla and extra chocolate chips. They're not TOO sweet, which is good because I made them for a breakfast potluck in one of my college classes, but you can very much taste the chocolate. I will definitely make these again!!
I followed the advice of previous reviewers, but these muffins still didn't turn out that great. They have a kind of weird texture and get stuck in the muffin cups. Maybe I overmixed? Won't be making them again.
I did not care for this recipe. You would be better off buying a mix!
Very nice muffins. They rose up with nice domed tops. They are a little dry, but I think I may have over baked them while waiting for them to get a little color on them. They stay very white looking for much of the baking time. Kids really like them.
I used buttermilk, added 1 t. vanilla and 1/3 cup of applesauce along with the oil. Since some reviewers had complained of dryness I added the applesauce instead of increasing the oil. I always use vanilla if there is chocolate in the ingredients. The muffins have turned out great. I used mini cupcake pans. I will definitely use it again. I think you could use blueberries or dried cranberries instead of chocolate for a different twist.
This was a great recipe! I did add more milk and used the other tweeks other people did but I love it and will use it again and again for sure!!! What I love is that you can use it for other types of muffins! So great!! Thank you for sharing it!
Turned out moist and muffin like....add a full cup of milk...half white sugar half brown and vanilla. the choclate chips made it sweet but if you get a bite with out chips it kindof tastes like cardboard
I wondered if maybe I didn't follow the recipe closely enough, until I read another review that said they were like a chocolate chip biscuit. I didn't like them at all, but my kids did.
The muffins were not flavorful at all. Their only flavor was from the chocolate chips.
Not a good flavor at all. I had no problem with texture or sticking or anything(I added a splash of vanilla and a whole cup of milk and some brown sugar), they came out looking beautiful. But they tasted awful.
I made this on July 29,2010 for Josiah who loves chocolate, I added 1/4c. almonds and three bananas. They are baking now, will see how they come out. Isaiah loved the batter, that is a good sign.
Not exactly what I was looking for, these mufins had more of a cake texture than a crumble texture which is what I'm looking for. Added more milk, some vanilla, and brown sugar as stated in other reviews. Not bad but I wouldn't use this recipe again.
Added more milk, used some brown sugar, and cocoa powder like the most popular reviews... YUM
i did what the recipe said and the muffins tast like a flowery gum ball they are grose i dont know what the people were thinking when thay said these muffins were good but there NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
These muffins had no taste. I'm not sure how they could be doctored up -- I should have known from looking at the mix of ingredients (i.e. 1 T. of baking powder, no soda, no brown sugar, no vanilla, etc.) that the base recipe was not a winner. I can only say, bake at your own risk!
I added some vanilla for more flavor and used extra virgin olive oil rather than vegetable oil (all I had). They were really good but stuck to the muffin papers. Will try again!
My husband declared this morning that he is a "muffin purist", eating only blueberry muffins with struesal. I was out of blueberries and tried chocolate chips instead. Even my picky eater loved these! I had to add a little extra oil, and I made some struesal for topping. Instead of semi sweet morsels, I used milk chocolate. We will definitely use this recipe in the future.
I did not like this recipe at all. They were hard and stuck to the paper. The batter was not what you'd expect for a muffin recipe. I won't make it again. Sorry
I liked this recipe very much because it was so easy - they took no time at all. I had fat free 1/2 & 1/2 in the house which I really do not use so I used that instead of milk. I added vanilla extract 1/2teas. plus 1/2 teas. of almond extract. Very nice flavor with the chocolate. I used full size chocolate chips but mixed them between semisweet, milk and white. One of the reviews stated that they were more like a biscuit, maybe she overmixed plus there is a lot of baking powder, which will give a heavier texture. Just fold dry ingredients until just moist. Seeing some flour is fine. Better to undermix a muffin. Will make these again.
I've never had such a baking fail as this one. I don't know why, but it was a gooey mess. I didn't even end up putting my very expensive chocolate in it - i didn't want to waste it, plus, there is no way this dough remotely resembles the texture of muffins. I don't have a clue what went wrong.
My first grade twins enjoyed this! Quick and easy to make with them. Next time I will double and freeze the second batch.
They taste delicious, its an easy recipe to follow, but the tops dont turn very brown and they dont seem cooked all the way.
Good, but they got a little too dense after baking and cooling down. Might try to add more oil/milk next time.
I just finished making these and they turned out really good:-)This recipe was SUPER fast to put together,which is a plus since I have 3 crazy kids:-) I was in the mood for choc. chip muffins and I thought these were excellent.I followed the recipe to a T. I think next time I may add a little vanilla and maybe a little bit more sugar.thanks for the recipe!
They are in the oven as I type.... I was nervous about the "dry" problem and "not sweet enough" so I too increased the milk to 1 cup Milk and the chocolate chips to 1 cup. I used Canola oil, added 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 cup brown sugar & used cooking spray... hmmmmm..... smelling good so far..... I promised my kids homemade chocolate chip muffins, they unfortunately like those store bought ones in the white pouches...YUCK! I came across this recipe and decided to try it.... The verdict: YUMMY! I think these are great and my kids (3, 6 and 8) LOVE THEM! No more store bought junk! That's good enough for me! (4 stars for having the base recipe and 5 stars using modified recipe!)
Everyone loved these. I used about 1/4 t salt and replaced the oil with apple sauce. I put in half a smashed banana and substituted milk chocolate/peanutbutter chips. Really good, I made them yesterday and there is only one left!
My son found this recipe and surprised us with these muffins this morning. He is 14 and loves to bake, he followed the recipe exactly and they turned out fantastic. They do not taste like the box mixes, and that is a good thing!
These were very good and so easy that my son made them himself. I did find that I had to add a bit more liquid.
Batter blended well. Muffins turned out PERFECT. Tops were raised, rounded, and deliciously crunchy, while the stems were soft and fluffy. Color was a nice golden brown. These were gone in 2 days. I definitely would make these again.
these muffins were prety good i added white chocolate chips and vinila i probrally will make it again
They were easy to make and they looked good. I followed the recipe and they did not turn out so good. Something has to be missing from this recipe because they turn out dry, crunchy and it tastes like baking powder. I do not recommend this recipe.
Good muffins. I made them for my son's sleepover and the boys could not stop eating them. Also good if you sour the milk (add 1 tsp vinegar to milk) also increased milk to 1 cup. Added 1 tsp brown sugar. FYI if you make mini muffins cook for approx 13 minutes.
These are good muffins. But as I've made these twice I understand the bad reviews. Without a few tweaks these are plain and don't have much depth or taste, and are not sweet at all. Don't be afraid to add extra sugar, milk and vanilla. I increased milk to 1 full cup, some of which I used heavy cream. I also added a spoonful of vanilla, used a full cup of sugar, half of which was brown, and used a full cup of chocolate chips. I sprinkled turbinado sugar on top of the muffins before baking and they came out very nice. I am not a big fan of very sweet things and even with my changes I don't think they were too sweet, but just perfect. I served mine hot with a small pat of butter inside. YUM! And btw, it doesn't really affect taste but I think the mini chocolate chips would work better in this recipe than the full sized I used.
Sorry, this is definetly not a fav for my family. These muffins are terribly dry, blah, they barely brown & they stick to the liners.
This recipe would be perfect except for the amounts of sugar & milk. I followed the other reviewers advice and added a full cup of sugar (brown & white) and a full cup of milk. With these alterations, they are delectible! My roommate loves them, my family loves them & my friends love them. I'm making another batch now to take to my co-workers! It's so simple to mix & they bake quickly. Good recipe!
Made these for teenage Sunday school group. What I liked: they were quick, easy, and I usually have all ingredients on hand. What I didn't like: they were a little dry, bland, and didn't brown nicely on top. I added vanilla, and held out 1T of the flour to coat the chips in so they wouldn't sink to the bottom.
These are pretty heavy little muffins, there is something not right about this recipe, just not sure what that would be More like light cooies, than a muffin
Great recipe! At the last minute I added the teaspoon of vanilla that many people suggested. Since I only had regular sized chocolate chips I wanted to make sure that the muffin part had a little flavor besides just being sweet! The muffins rose amazingly and were so tender. Just a little note: muffins with add ins are supposed to have thick batter, that way the add-ins won't just fall to the bottom of the pan. I made the muffins in muffin papers and they didn't stick to the paper at all. My 4 yr old said "Mommy, these are the best big chocolate chip muffins I ever had!" Not that she's an expert but the whole family really enjoyed them!
These are very good! I followed others' tips and added a whole cup of milk (instead of 3/4 cup), a splash of vanilla, and about a tablespoon of brown sugar. However, I think the cup of milk was too much; the muffins were a little too moist. I think I may add 3/4 as recommended next time. They taste delicious! Thank you!
I used the extra help from Lilijo, and its outstanding and works the best!!!! I would not have made it without these suggestions. Instead of a thick bland muffin its got a nice fluffy texture and is sweet. I added about 1 cup of chocolate chips instead of 3/4 cups. Thanks Lilijo for the extra help!
Very good muffins. I stuck to the recipe except I used butter instead of the oil and I did add about a 1/4 more of the chips. My muffins came out light and fluffy, and delicious. I did notice that after 8 - 10 min the muffins were done but the tops were not brown. I have a convection oven so I turned the fan on and they browned within a minute or so and were moist and fluffy inside. Update: I noticed that many are complaining that the chocolate chips are sinking to the bottom of the muffin. Don't add the extra milk that many are adding. The batter needs to be thick to hold the chips in place.
I did not care for these muffins. They came out very dry and more like a biscuit. The texture just wasn't right. I feel like something is missing.
This is really good with the modifications that other reviewers have left. Used half wheat flower and half white. Added 1/4 cup milk more and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Added teaspoon of vanilla and coated chips in flower to help not sink. With all that they taste quite nice!!
i followed the recipe exactly and i have to say that the actually muffin part isnt sweet at all, the only sweetness is the chocolate chips... they were good, just not great
These muffins were not at all sweet, they reminded me of biscuits. They were also very, very dense. I prefer my muffins much lighter and fluffier so I will be looking for a new recipe.
These are very good! After reading other reviews about them being too heavy I decided to add an extra 1/4 cup of milk and I think they turned out perfect!
These are just down right GOOD! I have made them EXACTLY as the recipe reads and I added Vanilla Extract. BOTH were really good. They do not last 30 minutes in my house of 4!! My two year old insist on eating TWO! My VERY PICKY 6 year old will eat 3 easily!! Ignore the bad reviews and just try it!
Very good muffins!
These chocolate chip muffins are very good. I did, however, add 1/4 cup extra milk and 1/4 cup brown sugar to give a little extra sweetness. I also sprinkled the tops of the muffins with just a few extra chocolate chips, because the chocolate chips tend to sink to the bottom of the muffin pan. I'll definitely make these again as a special treat for my kids.
Good basic recipe. Very easy to make but was missing something - will try again and add some vanilla next time. Also I believe it needed the extra 1/4 cup milk I added just in case they were dry (like many reviews said).
gooooooooooooooood. add vanilla., milk, brown sugar. average choco chip muffins.
2 thumbs up!! everybody in the house loves the taste. I highlighted this recipe in my blog http://thebakingstudio.blogspot.com/2012/06/chocolate-chips-muffin.html. Tq for this lovely recipe...
My whole family LOVED these muffins! They are heavier than other muffins, but we thought that made them delicious! My four year old gobbled 3 down in a row!
quick and easy and taste great. I added bananas just because my kids like them.
Pretty good and very quick and easy. i added more chips, some nuts and a tsp of maple syrup(was out of vanilla extract and that's a great substitute)
These were just awesome. I did follow the previous suggestions of adding a full cup of milk and a full cup of sugar(just white). I added a splash of vanilla, next time I will add more as I think it defintely needs it. I just had regular chocolate chips, and I added a full cup..all 12 muffins were gone in 24 hours! They came out incredibly light and fluffy, which was nice in comparison to the heavy ones you get from a coffee shop. I just took one star off for needing to adjust the ingredients. I know for sure it wouldn't have been sweet enough for me without the extra sugar and too bland without the vanilla.
Ughhh I will not be making these again. I followed the recipe and upped the milk to 1 cup and added a teaspoon of vanilla extract like some over reviews suggested and they tasted soo blahhh...there's no flavor to them at all. I was expecting them to be sweet and delicious just as they look in the picture but they were far from it. I quote my fiance, "it tastes like dense white bread with chocolate chips". Moving on to another choc chip muffin recipe...
Very dry and bland. Threw them all away...
These were good! I made a few changes based on other reviews: 1 cup milk, added 1/2 c brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla.
I did NOT care for These at all! Dry Dry Dry! I even added extra milk that others sugested heavy and dry flavor was ok but to heavy and dry!
These were good but they were a bit dry for me. I would have to add more milk or something to moisten them. Overall good flavor, i added peanutbutter chips to mine also.
Not super sweet, but tasty. I followed the tweaks of several other reviewers and upped the milk to 1 cup, added 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla. I wanted to make sure they had domed tops so I filled the cups and ended up with 11 muffins.
This is the first chocolate chip muffin recipe I have tried, and I was not disappointed. Delicious muffins. I added about 1tsp. of vanilla extract to mine. Definitely a keeper. Thanks.
This recipe didnt not work out I had to add water to this recipe in order to make it work and 400 was to high to bake it for
These muffins were nothing special.
Quick, easy and very good
This recipe is bad! Will never do it again.
i make these very often, i add 1\4 cup milk like others suggested, and they're always a hit! my sister is CRAZY over them!!!
I read some of the other reviews and added the suggested amounts of milk, sugar, and chocolate chips to the original recipe. The muffins came out moist but the bits of muffin that weren't chocolate chips were quite bland.
Mmm mm delicious. I followed the recipe exactly but added a 1/2 cup of oats. I will definitely make these again.
Omg i have just started cooking well cooking alot and someone gave me this recipie and this site and i made them and shared them with the nabaorgh hood and my best friend and i ate a whole nother batch i made them! I love them you are a GREAT cookk! But i herd dancer2277s review i know every1 is intitled 2 their own oipoion but shes wrong thats the way they are suposed2 be!
These came out so good! i did add more milk and 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla but i loved them!
A bit dense, added extra milk and brown sugar per other reviews. Will make again but feel it needs some tweaking.
yummy! i made this for a bay at the beach and the were perfect, i also added a little bit more chocolate and tossed in some white chocolate jut to be a wee bit diffrent
These were fabulous. My daughter and I made them when she needed to take a snack to school. They were quick, easy and really yummy. I didn't think they were dense at all as others have said. The only thing I added was a little vanilla. I think this would also be good baked in a bundt pan.
Great recipe - kids loved it, husand loved it and I loved it. Very easy and very tasty
I made these for my first attempt at making muffins for my husband. He really liked them and he's a picky eater. I think next time I would try what someone else suggested and use a little vanilla. Overall it's an easy recipe with a pretty yummy result.
I found these to be a bit bland even after adding some brown sugar and vanilla. They also had an odd look to them.
made as follows and was delicious 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup sugar, half brown, half white 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla 1 cup non fat milk 1/3 cup vegetable oil 1 cup milk chocolate chips
I was out of oil, so I used 1/2 cup of melted butter. They turned out really well! We'll definitely be using this recipe again!
these are definitely more scone like. I agree they need more sugar and more milk to make them more like a fluffy muffin. Not much flavor like this.
These didn't turn at well at all for me. I followed the other reviews instrustions and made it a full cup of milk. Also, I added a tsp of vanilla extract along with 1/4 a cup of brown sugar in addition to the 1/2. When I pulled them out of the over, I allowed them to cool for 10 minutes before trying them. They still were not done even after the 10 minutes I let them sit with the 20 minutes of baking time. The toothpick came out clean but the inside was looked like it was still raw. [although it was not 'wet' like batter]They didn't rise at all for me. Maybe it was the stuff I added in but it seemed to have worked for other people but it just didn't for me. I would not try it just to be on the safe side.
pretty easy recipes.. no beater needed. i added some brown sugar and added some more white sugar.. they come out kid of chewy... i found that adding 1/4 more cup of milk is better..overall not that great but ok..
Yum! These were fantastic. :) I used a whole cup of milk, and added about half a teaspoon of vanilla. I also sprinkled some more chocolate chips on top of the muffins after I poured them into the cups.
Great recipe. I made recipe exactly as written. They are a bit more dense than most muffins, but moist and very tasty. They are not too sweet. I will definitely make again, and will probably try them with other ingredients in place of the chocolate chips, possibly cranberries and white chocolate chips.
I have made these several times, and they are always a big hit! I did increase the milk to a full cup after reading other reviews. This is definately a keeper!
