The BEST Chocolate Chip Muffins – These bakery-style muffins are deliciously moist, fluffy, and stuffed full of chocolate chips. My absolute FAVOURITE muffins!
I have revamped my favourite Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe, and today I’m sharing them with you. They really are the BEST muffins you’ll ever try!
These bakery-style muffins are big, full of chocolate chips, and super moist. The buttermilk and vegetable oil used in this recipe are what makes these muffins SO moist and soft.
How to make Chocolate Chip Muffins
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Large eggs
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Buttermilk: See my recipe notes below on how to make your own!
- Vegetable oil
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
To make these muffins, start by whisking together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until thick and light in colour. (This may take a few minutes – use a hand mixer if you have one.) Add the buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients in thirds and fold in until just combined – do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the mixture into a muffin pan lined with muffin cases, filling to the top. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
TIP: Turn the pan halfway through baking to ensure even rise and browning – around the 12 minute mark, when the tops of the muffins are already starting to colour and have risen well. Be sure not to leave the oven door open for too long!
Allow to cool for 5 – 10 minutes in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Try one warm from the oven – SO GOOD.
