Right now, I am sitting in bed watching Gilmore Girls (thank you, Netflix!) and writing this post. I've been waiting all day for some rain. I got some beautiful clouds and saw some amazing pictures of the craziness to the North of us. Our rain is starting and I should probably go to bed at some point, but right now. . . it's me, you, and the Gilmore Girls sitting down to a nice warm latte and girl talk (sorry, if you are a guy reading this). We will also eat these scrumptious muffins, because really, they are amazing. . .and food goes really well with latte's and conversation.
I've made these muffins several times and they are always a huge hit! Although, I am pretty sure that anytime I feed the kids chocolate for breakfast, I get the Mom of the Year award. I think that it's all about the sprinkling of sugar sprinkles on top of any muffin makes them better. . . I'm sure that I'm not the only one?
Chocolate Chip Muffins
Recipe adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction
3 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla (I always just eyeball it)
1 cup mini dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line your muffin tin with your favorite liners. (Right now I am really digging these liners).
Mix together eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Carefully fold in the dry ingredients. Be careful not to overmix the batter (a big no-no for muffin making). Fold in the chocolate chips.
I like to use a cookie scoop to scoop the batter into the muffin liners. Fill almost all the way to the top and sprinkle with sprinkles (so that sounded repetitive!). Bake at 425 for 5 minutes and then lower the temp to 375 and bake for 25 minutes. I always forget to raise the temp for the second round of muffins, and they seem to bake very nicely at 375 for the whole time.
