Chocolate chip muffins are a breakfast staple and stand the test of time. These fluffy chocolate chip muffins in particular, are some of my favorite.
They have a moist, buttery texture and are also pillow-like puffy. They're truthfully the best of both worlds and will definitely please anyone. Plus, they're full of chocolate chips, so you basically can't go wrong.
Another reason this recipe is a star is because you can easily whip it up on a Sunday evening and have a delicious breakfast or snack ready to go for the rest of the week. I mean, effort once for a reward throughout the week? Sign me up.
I personally love to devour these fluffy chocolate chip muffins fresh out of the oven smeared with some butter. If you're eating them at a later point in the week as mentioned above, I definitely recommend heating them up a smidge (toaster oven preferred, microwave oven acceptable).
If you're looking for something on the fruitier side, try these blueberry streusel muffins with lemon glaze.
