Soft and airy muffins studded with milk chocolate chips make for a great breakfast, treat, or snack. The kids especially love to help make (and eat!) these easy homemade chocolate chip muffins!
I like to make a batch of muffins every now and then and have them on hand for a quick breakfast or snack. The kids love these chocolate chip muffins, but they’ll devour blueberry muffins, lemon poppyseed muffins, and banana crumb muffins just as fast!
Eaten as quickly as they’re made
I love bringing the kids into the kitchen so they can learn to cook and bake. My hope is it instills a love for the craft when they’re older. It is now one of my most favorite things to go in the kitchen and have all the kids gathered around the island, making a treat together.
A few weeks ago, Gavin and Evie said they wanted to make a treat, so we whipped up some Homemade Chocolate Chip Muffins (we’re suckers for anything with chocolate). It had been a cold, rainy day so these muffins were a highlight to the dark and gloomy weather. We make classic chocolate chip cookies all the time, so it was nice to change it up and make muffins.
The muffins were gone as quick as they were made – so soft and moist and definitely another keeper recipe!
how to make chocolate chip muffins
This is a great recipe to have the kids help with because it really is so simple.
MIX. In a medium bowl mix flour, brown sugar, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well. In another bowl, beat together milk, butter, eggs and vanilla until well combined. Add dry ingredients and beat until mixed well. Fold in chocolate chips.
BAKE. Spoon into a muffin tin filled with cupcake liners. Fill them to about ⅔ full. Sprinkle tops with sugar and bake for 16-18 minutes.
Tip: Before baking, sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top with the sugar—this makes the muffins look prettier when they come out of the oven! And the kids especially love helping with this step.
Tips + Storing Tricks
No Soggy Muffins! To prevent your muffins from getting soggy while you store them, place a paper towel in the bottom of your storage container, and another paper towel on top of the muffins to absorb any extra moisture.
You can store the container at room temperature for 2-3 days, or in the fridge for 5-7.
Freezing Muffins. Once the chocolate chip muffins have completely cooled, flash freeze them on a baking sheet until they are somewhat hardened. Then, transfer them to a freezer bag or storage container, and store in the freezer for a few months.
Let thaw on the counter overnight before devouring.
I’ve made so many muffins and cupcakes before but had never made a Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe!! Crazy, I know, but we loved this one which means we’ll be making it more often. 😉
