Making these bakery-style muffins is surprisingly easy.  You just mix dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in another bowl, then combine them and pour in the muffin tin.  This literally takes less than 10 minutes, then you bake them and the muffins are ready!  All the ingredients are common – flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt eggs, butter, vanilla and chocolate chips – just all natural goodness. No special baking skills are required – psst, let this be our little secret :)

On the picture below, the chocolate chips are still melted as the muffin hasn’t yet cooled down :)  Can you imagine biting into this muffin – still warm from the oven, and the chocolate chips inside are still hot and melty!  And as you can see, I don’t skimp on chocolate chips :) Whenever I look at this picture, I get an intense craving for these muffins and need them right now!

My favorite way of eating these delicious bakery-style muffins is for breakfast with a cup of coffee. Coffee with baked goods is my weakness… especially when the chocolate chips are added to the mix!  This muffin is large enough and substantial to be a stand-alone breakfast.  And if you want more protein, you can have a side of sausage, bacon or your favorite cheese!

    1. I’m sure you can substitute chocolate chips with blueberries :) In fact, you just gave me an idea – next time I’ll make this muffin recipe with blueberries and post the result on this blog!

  1. These are very, very good but have question. They were done about 23 minutes or so…checking with toothpick but not has dark on top as I would like. I was concerned that if I left in too long would really start to get over cooked and dry?

  2. Wow – all those comments and only one other person actually made these? Normally I stay away from recipes like that…if no one made them you can’t get an idea if the recipe will work for you or not. Today however I took a leap of faith and tried these. I did make one change mind you – I added 2 tsp of instant coffee crystals to the milk and then heated it a bit (forgot to take it out earlier to get to room temp). The coffee with the chocolate chips is soo good! I’m glad I decided to try this, these turned out very yummy!

  3. Good muffins…yield 16 muffins. Did not bake as long as 15 minutes – perhaps my oven is hotter than most. I wonder if 1/2 cup milk & 1/2 oil vs 1 cup milk would, perhaps, make them more moist.
