Chocolate chip muffins are mini sized and the best back-to-school snack. They take only minutes to make for a soft, sweet, handheld snack for little kids.
I first posted these mini chocolate chip muffins 3 years ago on the blog. They were one of the very first, if not the first, recipe I ever posted.
My kids love having them after school, in their lunch boxes, and even as a special treat for breakfast with a tall glass of milk. With back-to-school coming for most people, I thought it would be the perfect time to repost these delicious little muffins so they can get in front of more eyes.
Original post is below with some pretty new updated pictures.
We LOVE these muffins so much that I have made these 3 times in the past week!
The first time I messed up the baking time and they turned out over-cooked. I wanted to get the timing right for this post and so I made another batch. The second batch was perfect.
I ate a couple, you know for research purposes , went to put the baby to sleep and I came back to my other two kids shoving these mini muffins in their mouths. There were maybe only 4 muffins left from the batch.
In their defense…. I had not fed them lunch yet. My kids loved them so much that we made another batch a couple of days later.
So, if me making these 3 times in one week does not convince you they’re good, then I am not sure what will!
They’re the perfect size for little hands, they come together fast, and make for the perfect snack. I’m not sure if it’s because of their cute and mini size but it’s hard to stop at just one.
Get yourself a mini muffin tin and two bowls. Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in the other.
You want to make sure that each mixture is mixed well, that way you don’t over mix the batter when you combine the two.
The one enemy of muffins is an over mixed batter. It makes them tough instead of soft and moist.
Add some miniature chocolate chips and gently mix until combined.
The regular sized chocolate chips are too big for these miniature muffins so please get some of the mini chocolate chips. They are fairly common and I have seen them in every grocery store I’ve shopped at.
If you want a pretty muffin then sprinkle a few extra chips on top of the batter before baking.
Each muffin cup will be almost full. You will end up with a little leftover batter. You could either make a few more mini muffins or take a few finger licks of the dough, haha
It tastes exactly like chocolate chip cookie dough so if you can handle the whole raw egg thing, then you’ll love the dough.
Enjoy friends! These are truly one of our favorites so I hope you love them like we do ♥
