  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , melted and cooled
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and prepare your muffin tin with liners, or grease it with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine  the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips and set it aside.
  • In another bowl, mix together the melted butter, sugar, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla.  
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and use a spatula to gently fold the mixture together, just until combined. Be careful not to over-mix the batter.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups--they will be full to the top. 
  • Bake at 425 degrees F for 5 minutes. Then, reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F and continue baking for 12-15 more minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. 
    Be extra cautious not to over bake the muffins or they will be dry.
  • Remove muffins to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.



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.
