Chocolate Chip Muffins – The Perfect Bakery Style Breakfast

Homemade chocolate chips muffins topped with sparkling sugars

Muffins are such an amazing baked good, because they are perfect for any time of day! It is acceptable to have them for breakfast, as a snack or as a dessert. I shared my recipe for Birthday Cake Muffins a couple weeks ago, and I took that recipe and modified it just slightly to give you this Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe. My kids go crazy for these muffins, and to be honest my husband and I love them as well. Try this recipe out today and your family will love them too!

Here are some tips for making this recipe:

  • Chocolate chip muffins are always a classic, but these can be modified with whatever you would like. Try nuts, fruit, peanut butter chips or anything else you would like and let me know how it turns out.
  • Don’t overwork the muffin batter. You want to mix your ingredients just until they are combined. This is key to keeping light and fluffy muffins.
  • If you don’t have baking cups, that’s okay! While they make things much easier, you can manage without. Just be sure to grease your muffin tins very well before putting the batter in.
  • Sparkling sugars aren’t completely necessary for these muffins, but they sure do add a special touch! The crunchy/sweet texture and taste that they add really take these muffins to the next level.
