Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredients

These are the ingredients you'll need to make this top-rated chocolate chip muffin recipe at home:

· Milk: This moist chocolate chip muffin recipe starts with milk.
· Oil: Instead of butter, this recipe calls for a neutral oil (such as vegetable oil).
· Egg: An egg lends moisture and acts as a binder, which means it helps hold the batter together.
· Flour: All-purpose flour gives the batter structure.
· Sugars: You'll need white and brown sugars for this sweet recipe.
· Baking powder: Baking powder acts as a leavener, which means it helps the batter rise.
· Salt: A pinch of salt enhances the overall flavor of the muffins, but it won't make them taste salty.
· Chocolate chips: Of course, you'll need chocolate chips!

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"Fluffy and soft interior, crisp but not rock-hard exterior, and an even distribution of chocolate chips throughout the dessert — all great signs of a good muffin to me," according to derektallrecipes.

"They were perfect for breakfast and we had some leftovers for the next day," says Jenna Yonts. "They came out very dense and fluffy! I love this recipe and I highly recommend it!!"

"These are delicious," raves Samantha Campbell. "They're crumbly, but not too dry and still moist. The sugar makes a nice crust, but they melt in your mouth. Highly recommend! Mine made 11 cupcake-sized muffins."

  • ¾ cup milk

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line cups with paper liners.

  2. Combine milk, oil, and egg in a small bowl until well blended. Combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl, making a well in the center. Pour milk mixture into well and stir until batter is just combined; fold in chocolate chips.

  3. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. Mix 3 tablespoons white sugar and brown sugar together in a small bowl; sprinkle on tops of muffins.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the tin briefly, then transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely.
