Chocolate Chip Muffins


Remember all those horrific muffins you had at certain bakeries? The really hard, tasteless, baked-two-days-ago ones? Forget that you ever had them.

I know they are not pretty. But they are muffins, come on. Plus the smell blinds you.. it’s THAT good.

First of all, remind me to sue Starbucks for the lamest muffins EVER. Second of all, after finishing reading this post… GO AND MAKE THE MUFFINS because they will be one of the greatest muffins you ever tasted.

I was browsing for a good chocolate chip muffin recipe, and I realized that no one does things better than Bake Or Break, she’s just one of those people that the recipes they make don’t disappoint.

You’ll need:

  • 1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted & slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 190 C. Lightly grease or line 12 regular muffins cups (or 9 jumbo ones).

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in melted butter, milk, and vanilla. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.

Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. Serve warm.

Happy Cooking!
