Chocolate Chip Muffins

I am on a mission to try to get my husband to eat some breakfast.  Even if it's not something super healthy, I would feel better if he would eat something for breakfast.  He has a physically demanding job, has been known to put off eating if they are running behind.  I can't control what happens on his job site, but I can make sure that he at least has something to eat before leaving home so he has some energy!  However, he is not a big breakfast person, doesn't like milk or cereal or eggs, so I have to be a bit more creative.

He does have a habit of going to the cookie jar on his way out the door and grabbing a cookie (or three) but I was aiming for something a little more filling.  Enter these chocolate chip muffins.  While I am sure they are not the healthiest breakfast item out there, they are a good something to have to start your day and the added chocolate chips make them sweet and make my husband willing to eat them.  I hope you enjoy them as well!

Chocolate Chip Muffins
Recipe adapted from Creative Savings
  •  1 egg
  • 1 cup sour cream (8 oz)
  • 5 TBSP butter (melted)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (or mini chips)


In a bowl, mix the wet ingredients.  Stir in dry ingredients until just blended - no not over mix.  Finally fold in chocolate chips.  Place paper liners in muffin tin and fill 3/4 full with mix.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes - test center of larger muffin with a toothpick.  Muffins are done when toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool.
These also freeze well and can be re-heated in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
