Choco Chip Muffins are the perfect dessert option with just the right amount of chocolate and a hint of cinnamon in them!
Everyone in my house loves choco chip muffins. Like I said, these muffins have no chocolate overdose but at the same time, there is enough chocolate to satisfy those chocolate cravings. And with a hint of cinnamon, these choco chip muffins are just bliss 🙂 These muffins are quite a regular at home and I really can’t believe I haven’t posted the recipe here till now.
And this all started because of the cooking marathon! When Valli spoke to me about doing this marathon (similar to NaBloPoMo but we coordinate among ourselves) for a month, I was excited. Only thing I didn’t know was that she was thinking of doing the marathon in January itself 😉 So, when I saw her post this morning after two days of being offline, I was in two minds about it.
Should I join 2 days late or should I skip it? More importantly, will I be able to do it as I am travelling from 22nd of this month? But then I decided what the heck! let me give it a shot 😀 So, here I am announcing the first ever marathon on this blog and like they say begin everything with a sweet. So lets have a sweet beginning to the marathon as well as the year 🙂 kuch meetha ho jaaye.
These chocolate flavored muffins are so easy to make that anyone can bake them. I would suggest if you have a budding baker at home, who loves to try out new recipes, this is one muffin which they can start with. The minimalist ingredients and the simple procedure means that they will find it easy to understand and except for putting in the muffins in the oven and taking them out, the kids can pretty much make these muffins all by themselves. And if they are really enthusiastic, as them to try out the pear and choco chips muffins too 🙂
A Marathon Begins & Choco Chip Muffins
- 3 Eggs large
- 1 cup Flour
- 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 2/3 cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1 tsp Vanilla essence
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder
- 1 tbsp Baking Powder
- Whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla till light and fluffy.
- Mix together the dry ingredients i.e flours, sugar and baking powder and chocolate chips.
- With a spatula, fold in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Don't over mix and that's the key to good muffins. Unlike cake batter which you can mix and beat very well for a good sponge, a muffin has to be mixed till just mixed, else the muffins will turn out hard.
- Pour into lined muffin moulds or directly into silicon muffin moulds as I did 🙂 bake in a preheated oven for at 180C for about 15-20 minutes till the skewer comes out clean.
- Wait for it to cool down and bite away.
