How to make Chocolate Chip Muffins:

Chocolate Chip Muffins

The simple version of this recipe is: Add all ingredients together, minus the chocolate chips and mix well.

I like to cream together my oil and sugar, then add in eggs and mix that together for at least a minute before continuing to add the remaining ingredients.

The batter is very thick. Once mixed thoroughly, fold in your chocolate chips.

Scoop your batter into well grease muffin tins, or use cupcake liners.

*I make this recipe two different ways. I like to sometimes use unsweetened apple sauce in place of the oil. It makes them slightly heavier, and healthier.

My husband, Blake, will not eat them if I used applesauce, but my kids and I still love them.
