My Classic Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe may be a kid favorite, but you are sure to love them just as much! They have the perfect balance of sweetness.

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 9 Muffins
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • cup (5oz/142g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup (2oz/57g) plain yogurt
  • ½ cup (4floz/115ml) neutral-flavored oil (sunflower, canola, veg, etc.)
  • cup (2 ½ floz/71ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups (6 ¼ oz/177g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (3oz/85g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a muffin tin with 9 paper liners.

  2. In a bowl mix sugar, egg, yogurt, oil, milk, and vanilla and whisk until well combined

  3. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt.

  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until just mixed followed by the chocolate chips. A few small lumps are ok.

  5. Fill the prepared muffin cups almost to the top.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes on an upper-middle rack in your oven until a knife inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Let cool in the muffin tin for about 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
  8. Store any leftover muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 2 months.  Reheat the muffins in a warm oven (300°F/150°C) or microwave briefly.
