Fancy Chocolate Chip Muffins

There is nothing my kids like more than helping me in the kitchen, especially when it involves making a yummy treat like chocolate chip muffins.

The Grocery List:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp natural wheat bran (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips (I used 3/4 cup chopped chocolate that I had on hand)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
Baking It All Up:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 12 muffin cups or use paper liners.

In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, bran, chocolate chips).
Add the wet ingredients (beaten egg, milk, and oil). Stir until batter is moistened.

Spoon batter into your muffin tins filling each one 3/4 full.
In a small bowl mix 1 tbsp of white sugar and 1 tbsp of brown sugar. This is the topping for your muffins and is what changes them from your run of the mill chocolate chip muffins into "fancy" muffins (at least that is what my 6 year old says). Sprinkle the sugar mixture over each muffin.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until golden brown. Remove promptly from pan.
