Chocolate Chip Muffins


Total Time:



Oh man you guys. We’re bringing back the breakfast muffins. Chocolate Chip Muffins are happening today and they are bringing me back to when I was a kid and I’d get a giant muffin every morning for breakfast!  Chocolate Chip Muffins from (@whatsgabycookin)

Did you guys grow up having sweets for breakfast? Is that normal? Or was it the Dalkin family sweet tooth coming out to shine at an early age? Regardless, I’m not mad at it! My parents both have a sweet tooth and it was absolutely passed down to me and my sister! We used to split one of those giant chocolate chip muffins every morning for breakfast and head off to school. The muffins were almost cake like and dotted with plenty of chocolate chips. We’d heat them up in the microwave for 20 seconds so we could get them warm and taste all that deliciousness. They were buttery and chocolaty, and I LIVE for the days when I get around to making some and can enjoy them for breakfast as an adult!

So naturally they deserve a place on the blog, right? Obviously! Let’s make them! 

These couldn’t be easier and I bet you have the majority of the ingredients on hand this very minute. It’s the usual, butter, eggs, milk, flour, sugar situation but I upped the ante (as I usually do) and used the Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt! Now I know what you’re thinking, butter with olive oil? I know, bear with me! It actually is the BEST way to make muffins. The combo of butter and oil gives them more moisture, they stay fresh a bit longer, and the muffin tops get a better shape! You could also use Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil, but I love the one with olive oil and a hint of salt! It’s perfection. So… now that we are all experts on muffins… do yourself a favor and make these ASAP!

    These look incredible! We had banana chocolate chip muffins quite often growing up.

    2 1/2 cups chocolate chips? is that measure accurate? Looking to make this weekend and I wanted to check. Thanks!

    I feel like these could turn out well using regular salted butter plus a few dashes of olive oil?? I am going to try it. I don’t want to have to buy a special butter tub like that.

  4. Jen

    Can I use regular salted butter without olive oil? No store near me carries the butter w/olive oil and sea salt.
