How to bake the perfect chocolate chip muffins




1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (dutch process if you have it)

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup milk chocolate chips + more for garnish

2 eggs

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup milk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla


Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.

Grease your muffin tin or use paper liners.

In a large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients – flour, sugar, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt.

Then add in chocolate chips and stir.

In a small bowl combine eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla. Mix well.

Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until everything is incorporated.

Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 of the way full. Continue to stir the batter as you fill the muffin cups so that the chocolate chips don’t settle at the bottom.

Sprinkle a few additional chocolate chips on the top of each muffin.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.

This recipe yields 15-18 muffins.
