Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love the simplicity of this muffin, a simple vanilla muffin enriched with the chocolate bits is my go-to evening snack. This would also make a perfect snack box recipe too. Kids love vanilla muffins, add some chocolate chips to it and the muffins turn irresistible!

You will not taste the cinnamon in this recipe but it helps to enhance the flavor of chocolate. There are many chocolate chip muffin recipes but this is my favorite one. It is extremely soft and moist and the tiny bit of chocolate chips adds so much to the muffins. 

The addition of sour cream makes the muffin so moist and soft. I did not get any sour cream hence added some yogurt and it worked just as well. The sweetness of this muffin is perfect for us but if you prefer you can add 1 tbsp more sugar.

Chocolate chip muffin

1. Coating the chocolate chips with flour prevents it from sinking to the bottom and spreads it evenly in the batter.
2. Start checking after 18 minutes, if it's not done, reduce the temperature and bake for 2-3 more minutes.
3. Do not overbeat the batter.
4. The sweetness of the muffin is just enough with the chocolate chips. If you like your muffin to be on the sweeter side then you can add a tbsp more of sugar.
