Who doesn’t love a nice, fresh and sweet Chocolate Chip Muffin to start their morning off with? This Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe will make you want to start every morning off with a delicious muffin. 

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Growing up, I would love to devour the Hostess pre-packaged mini chocolate chip muffins, and let me just say they were great. But then I had homemade chocolate chip muffins and now there is no going back. 

There is something about a homemade muffin that just cannot be beaten by any store-bought muffin. The freshness, sweetness, flakiness are things you will never find in a store-bought muffin. 

Chocolate Chip Jumbo Muffins from Scratch

This recipe is simple enough, why not also make som of my other favorite homemade muffin recipes. I’d love to hear what your favorite is, so make sure to leave a comment below and let me know.

We all have to agree that the best part of the muffin is the muffin top and these Chocolate Chip Muffins have the softest tops and are loaded with chocolate chips. This recipe is quick and easy to make in any morning or afternoon because they are just that easy to make. Within a few minutes, you can enjoy hot fresh muffins too.

Making different size muffins for different occasions is always fun, so make sure to follow the guide below for perfect muffins of any size!

How to make Chocolate Chip Muffins from scratch?

  • Preheat Oven to 375 Degrees
  • Grease Muffin Pans or use Paper Muffin Liners
  • In a large mixing bowl add dry ingredients. Flour, Sugar, Salt, and Baking Powder. Stir and combine ingredients.
  • Add Mini Chocolate Chips in flour mixture and Stir – It’s important to stir the chocolate chips with the flour mixture to coat the chips and prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add Egg, Vanilla, Vegetable Oil and Milk
  • With a fork or whisk, mix the egg into oil and milk gradually adding flour mixture into the process.
  • Mix until fully combined. Batter will be thick
  • Spoon into muffin tins

Baking Times For Muffins

Muffins bake at 375 degree preheated oven for the following times. Pans should be sprayed with cooking spray or use muffin liners.

Muffin Tin SizeBaking Times
Mini Muffins9-12 Minutes
Regular Muffins15-18 Minutes
Jumbo Muffins20-24 Minutes

How to Store Chocolate Chip Muffins?

Store muffins in an airtight container such as a zip-loc bag or plastic container to keep fresh.

How Long will Muffins Last?

Muffins will last for about 5 days after baking them, I recommend storing them in the refrigerator to make sure they stay extra fresh. If you want your muffins to last longer than that, store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

Can you freeze Chocolate Chip Muffins?

I love freezing muffins, these muffins will be the perfect breakfast that you can make beforehand and freeze half the batch for a later time. Place the muffins in a container and freeze them for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy these muffins, let them thaw for a few hours. I recommend getting the muffins out of the freezer the night before and letting them sit out on the container overnight and then in the morning, they are ready to enjoy. 

Are Chocolate Chip Muffins best served warm or cooled?

Chocolate Chip Muffins are one of those kinds of foods that are tasty when they are fresh out of the oven or when they are cooled. I prefer my Chocolate Chip Muffins to be warmed, but honestly, I will eat these muffins at any temperature because they are that good. 

Do I need a specific kind of chocolate?

With Chocolate Chip Muffins will be delicious with whatever chocolate you prefer. Whether that is white chocolate, dark chocolate, semisweet, or vegan chocolate chips. Make sure to put ¾ cup of your favorite chocolate into the batter.  I do prefer using a semi-sweet mini chocolate chip for this recipe.

Tips and Tricks:

  • I would recommend sprinkling a little sugar on each muffin before baking them, this will give the muffins a flaky muffin top. 
  • I use a Jumbo Muffin Tin to make these muffins, but you can use a Mini Muffin Tin or a Regular-sized Muffin Tin. 
  • Fill the muffin tin up to ¾ of the way full with the muffin batter.
