Chocolate Chip Muffins
I found this recipe several years ago at Cooks.com. It is a wonderful muffin recipe and really easy. I will give you my tweaks to the recipe at the very end, the following is the original recipe.
2 cups plain flour
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup milk
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted & cooled
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
6 oz. (about 1 cup) milk chocolate chips
6 oz. (about 1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugars, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, stir together the milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla until blended. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the liquid ingredients and stir just to combine. Stir in the chips.
Spread the batter into greased muffin tins or paper lined tins. Bake 15 - 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of one muffin comes out clean. Remove muffin tin to a wire rack.
Cool muffins in pan for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and finish cooling.
Yield: 12 muffins
Use fresh ground wheat for flour (either hard white or soft white - have used both successfully)
Use sucanat for brown sugar
Use kefir for milk
Use coconut oil instead of butter
We use 12 oz. semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (lots of little chips throughout the muffins)
I have not substituted all of the sugars for sucanat. Don't know why, I just haven't tried that yet. We usually double the recipe and freeze the muffins in gallon freezer bags for busy mornings.
