July Craft Challenge–Easy Chocolate Chip Muffins

Monday, July 29, 2013

This month’s craft challenge was a surprising one for me – Bake It. To me, crafting and baking are totally separate entities! If you know me at all, you probably know I’m not much of a cook or a baker. You also probably know how much my kids like to snack! We were having a serious problem with the kids eating a bag of mini-muffins per day – with only 5 per box, they were emptying quite fast. Plus, when they cost $4 a box, that adds up! So Dave suggested I make my own muffins. I wasn’t sure how it would go for two reasons – my lack of baking skills and the kids’ enjoyment of homemade versus packaged muffins. Well, we gave it a try!

Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe from

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease or line 12 muffin cups.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Stir in the milk, egg, butter and chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

I would say it was a successful test! We have made these muffins twice already – next time I probably should make more than one batch at a time! The kids love them and have not asked me for packaged muffins since.
