Large bakery style muffins, dotted with plenty of mini chocolate chips. The best way to start your Monday!
Did you have a good weekend? I hope it was sunny where you live! Its been over-cast and grey here for the past few days. I mean its better than snow – sorry if you live on the east coast! But I can’t wait for sun and warm weather.
These muffins are amazing. Yep, I said it. They’re so good. Have you ever made a muffin recipe, but mixed it one too many times and ended up with a rock hard muffin? Yeah? Me too. Which sucks, because it’s just not the same as a soft, fluffy muffin. Anyways, what I’m trying to tell you is this recipe is a little more forgiving than most other muffin recipes. Meaning if you mix one too many times its not the end of the world. I mean I wouldn’t purposefully over mix these…These muffins are larger than your average – we’ve filled them right to the brim of the tin, making a larger top. Which is the best part anyways, really. And the mini chocolate chips are a perfect addition to this recipe, making it not too sweet, but just sweet enough. Get rid of your case of the Mondays with these muffins!

These look wonderful. I love bakery style muffins. They make a simple breakfast so special. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Jolena! 🙂
In the recipe you said 1/2 butter – melted?
Is that 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 stick butter melted.
Another Question…What does the vinegar do in the recipe.
Thank You So Much, Jeff
Sorry about that! I used 1/2 cup melted butter.
The vinegar reacts with the milk to make a “home version” of buttermilk.
