These Bakery Style, big and fluffy Chocolate Chip Muffins deserve a permanent spot in your recipe book! They’re easy to make and perfectly moist.

I have so many favorite muffin recipes on my site ranging from classics like Banana Bread Muffins and Blueberry Muffins, to Pumpkin and Snickerdoodle Muffins. I love how well they freeze for lunches or after-school snacks.

These Chocolate Chip Muffins are truly everything you’d hope for; moist and fluffy in the center with a slight crisp, golden muffin top. They have just the right balance of sweetness to leave you feeling satisfied.

How to make Chocolate Chip Muffins:

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, baking powder, baking soda,  salt, and chocolate chips.
  2. In separate bowl, mix together the melted butter, sugar, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and gently fold the mixture together just until combined.  Be careful not to over-mix the batter.
  4. Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups–they will be full to the top.  Bake at 425° F for 5 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 375° F and continue baking for 12-15 more minutes. The initial hot temperature will help you get a big and tall muffin top, like you’d find at a bakery!

Storing Instructions:

Store the muffins in a ziplock bag or a container with a lid, with a paper towel underneath and on top of them to keep them from getting soggy.

Freezing Instructions:

Allow to cool completely, place in a freezer-safe ziplock bag or container and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw on your counter or warm for a few seconds in the microwave.
