Homemade Chocolate Chip Muffins

Sharing is caring!

These chocolate chip muffins are perfect as a snack, a go to breakfast, or even when you want a sweet treat. They are simple and easy to make!

I love homemade muffins. My favorite ones are the homemade blueberry muffins that I make, but my kids have always loved chocolate chip muffins, so I set out to learn how to make them from scratch as well.

I used to buy the storebought muffin mix pouches until I found out just how easy it is to make them homemade and they taste even better! So, today I am going to show you how you can make these amazing chocolate chip muffins as well.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins can be made using simple pantry ingredients you have right on hand. If you wonder what you should stock your pantry with, check out this free pantry printable I have you can download.

This is a simple one-bowl muffin recipe. No fancy tricks here!

Start by whisking together your dry ingredients. Then, mix together your wet ingredients.

You can use a mixing bowl if you like, but I like to use a 4 cup measuring bowl. It makes it easy to measure all the liquids and then add the dry at the end.

If you want really moist muffins, be sure not to overmix them when adding ingredients together.

When the batter is almost combined, mix in the chocolate chips, just until everything is combined.

Spoon the batter into a muffin tin and bake until baked through. You can bake these right in a muffin tin, or you can use cupcake liners to make sure they come out nice and clean.

To make sure your muffins come out even, use this ice cream scoop to put the batter into the muffin tin.

Let the muffins sit in the tins for a few minutes after coming out of the oven before removing them. Otherwise, the muffins may crumble.

If you want to make up an extra batch of these, they freeze really well. When you need them, just lay them out to thaw, then nuke them in the microwave to reheat them.
