If you love bakery style muffins these Chocolate Chip Muffins are a must try!
My family has been making these muffins for years. They are one of our all time favorite muffin recipes. I even have a gluten free version of them. So if you are gluten free be sure to check out my Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Muffins.
This recipe is adapted from a recipe I got out of a Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes cookbook I bought several months ago. I love the cookbook. The two recipes that I have tried so far have been great and I have quite a few more that I want try.
This week I wanted to send something to my husband’s office for a treat. Muffins are always popular, so I decided to see what I could find in the Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes. She had a recipe for chocolate chunk cupcakes, but they were very similar to a muffin.
The idea of a chocolate chip muffin sounded really good, so I decided to adapt them into a muffin recipe. I decreased the liquid and did some minor adjusting to the recipe. They turned out great!
If you love bakery style muffins I think you will love these!
These are definitely not a healthy muffin. They are a treat. I think they would be great as a cupcake with my chocolate frosting.
