Chocolate Chip Muffins

Our schedule has been off, to say the least, this summer. Non-existent is more like it.
I’m usually up hours before anyone else so by the time they finally roll out of bed I’m knee-deep in the latest project. At that point, I don’t want to stop and make a big breakfast. You see, I have spoiled the Jones boys (Big Daddy included) over the years with a
home-cooked breakfast. Everyday.
Don’t get me wrong, there is the occasional bowl of cereal or purchased doughnuts. I just feel they don’t need the preservatives in processed foods every day.

Recipe tips

  1. These muffins are easy to make in just minutes. It takes just two bowls and a spoon or spatula.
  2. To save time on cleanup, use cupcake liners minis. or regular.
  3. You can bake these in a mini muffin tin or regular size. The minis will cook more quickly. At 350 degrees mini muffins take 12 to 14 minutes and standard-size muffins will take 18 to 20 minutes.
  4. Use a spring-release scoop to dip your muffin batter into the pan so that they’re the exact same size.
As mentioned above, you simply need two bowls for wet and dry ingredients. As you’re combining the wet and dry ingredients, use a spoon or spatula to fold the ingredients and turn the bowl. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl as well. However, be diligent in over-mix the batter.
The batter will become tough if you over-mix it. The less you mix and develop the gluten, the softer and more tender the muffins will be.

  1. These look great! I love the big chocolate chips, but mini's would be cute too. Would love for you to link up at my Pin It Thursday party–

  2. These look wonderful!
    I love the fact that the recipe calls for oil and not butter – it makes the muffins softer and moist.
