These are the "BEST" chocolate chip muffins EVER!!! That coming from a girl who routinely DOES NOT eat chocolate chip muffins often.

Because neither of my children like anything in resemblance to a sandwich subs, excluded, it has been customary to send them muffins in their lunch.

Only problem, Dalton will not venture out of the norm and relies on the old standby... a CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFIN.

I soooo hate the taste of grocery store muffins and looked to searching out a respectable version Dalton would love.

Within minutes I happened apon the blog by Poornima Nair called
Tasty Treats.

Here in all it's glory, is the recipe for the best Chocolate Chip Muffins ever...

tandc 202



1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar, tightly packed
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (at Dalton's request I used half white & half dark chocolate - though next time he's requested I use only dark chocolate chips.)

Pre heat the oven to 375˚F. Line 12 muffin cups or grease the cups.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt and keep aside.
In another bowl, beat the eggs with a balloon whisk for 2 mins. Add the milk, butter and vanilla extract and stir.
Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix lightly just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Do not over mix the batter.
Spoon into the muffin cups and bake for 20-22 mins till done.

NOTE: I baked mine for 19 minutes at 350F; yeilding 16 muffins.


  1. did the white chips not melt as nicely? Maybe 1/2 dark and 1/2 milk chocolate.....

  2. It appears that way. I'm unsure whether that is why my son requested they not be used next time or whether they tasted different to him.
