Chocolate Chip Muffins

4 Jan

This is one of the first recipes I remember making when I was a teenager. My mother had a big binder-like cookbook called Great American Home Baking and what teenager wouldn’t like chocolate chip muffins? I’ve changed up the recipe just a bit, but the muffins are just as good as I remember.


    2 cups flour
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 Tbsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup canola oil
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    5 oz. (1/2 bag) Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking chips


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease cupcake pan. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.


In a smaller bowl, mix together the milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Add the liquid mixture into the larger bowl and use a fork to make sure all the dry ingredients are mixed well with the liquid.


Stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon the batter into the muffin pan, filling each cup about 3/4 full.


Bake muffins for about 18 minutes, until the tops begin to become golden. Enjoy!
