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!
