  • Mix flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Lightly beat egg in a separate bowl; stir in milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Mix liquid mixture into flour mixture until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full with batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in a muffin comes out clean, 10 to 11 minutes. Cool for 1 minute before transferring muffins to a wire rack.

Cook's Note:

You can use regular chocolate chips, but they have a tendency to drop to the bottom of the cups so you will need to decrease amount of milk.

I added in 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to make them chocolate muffins. So yummy! Yields about 1 dozen regular sized muffins. They came out beautifully. Also, if you mix your eggs, vanilla, milk and butter (didn't have oil) in a separate bowl until frothy it helps them come out light and fluffy. I have a photo of them on Instagram if you look up brainyheroine you'll be able to see them. :) Read More

It was delicious AFTER I added to recipe!! When I first made this recipe it was so bland no flavor at all. So I decided to try again and add/change some of the ingredients. Here's what I added... about 1/2 tsp of cocoa power- added for flavor but mostly for color. The original muffins were so pale looking after they were finished baking.. This gives it a nice color without making them chocolate muffins. Add this to dry ingred. enough to tint it (not to change it to chocolate color/flavor) added 1/2 tsp more vanilla extract 1 tab extra of brown sugar 1/8 tsp cinnamon- gives a hint of flavor but does not have a strong taste. I also added a little more choc chips because I'm a big fan of them! I've attached a pic of the muffins in photo section... Mine are in the blue rimmed bowl Hope this helps! Happy Baking!! Read More

I just made these and they won't last long. The kids are attacking them. I didn't have mini chocolate chips, so I chopped 1 cup of regular chocolate chips with a knife to make them smaller so they wouldn't sink. It worked great. I got 58 muffins, but I didn't fill the first batch up high enough. You can actually fill almost to the top. I've been paying $3 for twelve mini chocolate chip muffins at my grocery store's bakery. What a rip-off, and these taste better too. I won't be buying them from the bakery anymore. I'm REALLY glad I found this recipe today:) Read More

Made these muffins with the kids and they were gone in one day! They LOVED them. I made some chocolate chocolate and those were equally as good. I am making them as regular size muffins now. I increased the time to 14 minutes when baking the regular size. Thanks for the recipe it's a keeper! Read More

I liked this muffins but more importantly the kids loved them! I think this is a great recipe if you are trying to give your family better options nutrition-wise. I used 1 cup white flour and 1 cup whole flour coconut oil and coconut milk for the regulars keeping the same amounts as the recipe indicates and used only brown sugar (1/2 cup in total). Also added 2 tablespoons of cocoa as suggested. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This recipe is missing something... I don't want toothachingly sweet muffins and these definitely are not. However these taste almost bitter. My kids ate them but they requested that I make my blueberry muffins next time. Hard to believe they'd rather eat berries instead of chocolate. Read More
