Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate Chip Muffins {Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts}

We had a great time with my parents here this weekend.  We took them to the mountains, we had Christmas, and we just hung out.  It was great to spend time with them.  Now we are officially back to normal.  The Grandparents have all visited, we are unpacked and settled in our new house, and the Holidays are over.  Time to figure out what real life in Colorado is like!

My 6 year old needs to get in on the action when he is home!

I have yet to make a real cake out here.  The Flourless Chocolate Cake doesn’t really count, as it doesn’t have any leavening agents in it.  Muffins are as close as I have come, and I have found I need to alter them to get them to rise and look pretty.  These Chocolate Chips Muffins are one of our absolute favorites, and it took my 2nd attempt to make them what we know and love!   I posted these way back when I started my blog, but it got lost during the transfer to my new site.  I used this base for Blueberry Muffins, and Nutella Muffins as well.  Feel free to change it up, and add whatever fruit or chip/nut you like!

  1. There is nothing like a good chocolate chip muffin. Breakfasts like these make my whole day better!

  2. Even if you haven’t made a cake, I am loving your muffin recipes. These are a classic.

  3. These look great. I was thinking about making chocolate chip muffins the other day so my son could pack it to school for snack, but I made something else instead lol. Now I want a chocolate chip muffin. I’m glad your moved and settled in…. I did the same thing over the holidays and it’s nice to just get to live in a house instead of unpack it. :) Are you finding that your adjusting baking recipes due to altitude?

  4. First of all – I love that these are decent sized! Not too huge, and who doesn’t love a chocolate chip muffin enough to just keep eating? Great recipe :)

  5. So jealous! I’ve always wanted to visit the mountains in Colorado! It may or may not have something to do with the fact that I had a HUGE crush on John Denver when I was a little girl…

  6. Your son is adorable! This is a great recipe. I love the flexibility you suggest with using other chips, dried fruit, etc. but I suspect with just chocolate chips is simply outstanding! :)

  7. What I wouldn’t give for one of these right now!

  8. Our family loves homemade muffins and have been on a kick of them lately putting lemon poppy seed and blueberry ones on the blog last week. These chocolate chips muffins look like they would be a favourite here as well!!

  9. Yummy, these look scrumptious!

  10. I want one so badly! I have all the ingredients on hand…off I go!

  11. Erin, that’s so true — listing & selling your other house, finding & moving to a new home (several states away), re-vamping your blog (& posting through it all), entertaining both sides of the family, and oh yeah, throw a couple holidays in there — WHEW! No wonder you haven’t had time to know what “real life” is there! I’m cheering for you to have a “normal” rest of the month. (Rest of the year!!) Take care. :)

  12. Very pretty muffins…and you can never go wrong with chocolate!

  13. Oooo, these look great, Erin. It’s prolly obvious by my blog that we eat a lot of muffins here too but for some reason I’ve never made a chocolate chip one. Now though, I will sooooo be making these!

  14. Mmm I love chocolate chip muffins, these look so delicious Erin! :)

  15. Isn’t it amazing that high-altitude baking is so different? I’m have no doubt that you’ll figure it out and your cakes will be delicious!

  16. Awww, the reality that the holidays are over…but over here in Malaysia, we have another festive holidays coming up in a week and a half, so, it’s not over for us yet:p
    Lovely chocolate chip muffins!!:D

  17. Yum! It’s been years since I had a chocolate chip muffin but they were my absolute favorite as a kid. Can’t wait to try these out, they look perfect!

  18. I’m glad you’re all settled in. Your muffins look like ones we buy from a local bakery here and I’ve been thinking I need to try to make them myself. It’s interesting what a difference in altitude can do for baking. I’ve noticecd the same thing here with the humidity. Great recipe!

  19. So glad you had a great time with your parents. I’m glad you’re officially settled… it’s a great feeling. The muffins look great… and I love how excited your son is about them. Very Cute!! :)

  20. these are a must try! they sounds so so good!!

  21. Glad to hear you had a great time with your parents! These muffins look great!

  22. Perfect little chocolate chip muffins. Can’t beat it!
