Little Buddy is a chocolate chip fanatic. Add chocolate chips to his pancakes, waffles, milk shakes, and just about anything else and he’s ready to give it a try! For a while now, we’ve been making these little chocolate chip muffins that are just the right size to go along with a bowl of fruit for breakfast or even to grab for an afternoon snack. As he’s getting ready to head off to a week of camp soon, I’ve been trying to think of things that I can make that will keep well in his trunk for the week. As we were discussing it, he asked me to please make him a few batches of these little nuggets of deliciousness!

I know he’ll have great food while away, but I always like to send goodies from home with him. I’m sure it makes me feel a whole lot better than it does him. But… I’m going to continue to believe that at least with each of these little chocolate chip muffins that he takes a bite of while he’s away, he’ll feel like I’m there giving him a big ole hug! Please don’t tell me he’ll be out trading them for a jolly rancher or something like that like I did when I was his age at camp. I’m sorry Mama, but your cookies you sent with me got top trade that summer!

Author: Robyn Stone | Add a Pinch


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375º F. Spray mini-muffin tin with bakers spray or coat well with butter and flour, making sure to discard any excess flour from the tins after coating.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Cream together butter and sugar until lightened in color, about 3 minutes. Add an egg, one at a time, taking care to fully incorporate before adding the other. Mix in vanilla.
  • Gently fold in flour mixture, alternating with milk. Stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips and scoop mixture into prepared mini muffin tin, filling about 2/3 to 3/4 full. Bake until a toothpick or skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 15 minutes.
  • Once muffins have baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly in the muffin tin before removing for serving.

  1. Perfect morning treat!

  2. Delicious little treats; however, mine baked in mini muffin tins for 15 mins!

  3. Yummy….they turned out perfect!! Great recipe…mine also took 15min in the mini-muffin pan. I think you need to correct the cook time as you contradicted yourself in the recipe instructions (step 4) compered to the top where you list prep time/cook time/total time or someone is going to have some dry muffins! lol.

  4. These look delicious; however I am not a fan of chocolate. Is there another flavor of chips you would recommend?

  5. These turned out great…delicious. I used Whole wheat pastry instead of white flour 🙂 Next time I am going to substitute the large amount of sugar with applesauce. Ill let you know how they turn out.

  6. These look amazing! I need to bake more!

  7. Girl, these muffins look legit. I wish I could carry them with me everywhere.

  8. I made these yesterday but instead of muffins I made them in a pan came out very moist.

  9. What a great recipe! My whole family loved them. Thank you for sharing:) I replaced the sugar with two super ripe bananas and they turned out super… Love love them 😉

  10. how long it will last?

  11. I have made these four times already and each time they are a hit!!! I have made these with and without cupcakes baking cups.. And when I do them with the cups it serves for more than 24 mini muffins…great!

  12. Will these come out ok using veg. Oil?

  13. My 3 yr old and I made these this afternoon for our Tuesday afternoon baking project and they turned out amazing! They’re my new go to muffin. She loves taking muffins in her lunch for preschool and her older brother loves muffins for his morning snack in first grade. Thanks for the fabulous recipe.

  14. I would love to try this and your pancake muffin recipe: but I don’t have mini muffin tins. Hints on how to adapt them to the large muffin tin?

  15. I have made blueberry muffins where I freeze the batter in the lined muffin tins. I remove them from the freezer the day I want to bake them & put them right in the oven. They bake perfectly & only need a few extra minutes in the oven. Do you think this method would work for you chocolate chip muffins?

  16. Absolutely love these!  My kiddos did too ????.  A keeper for this family.  A nice weekend breakfast treat.
