Muffin Monday - Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Muffins

Welcome to Muffin Monday! It's hard to believe that with only three more muffin recipes to go, we'll have made it through the year and will have accomplished our goal of 52 muffin recipes on 52 Mondays! And just what are our plans for 2012 you ask? You'll have to check back next week. :) In the meanwhile, please enjoy today's simple, delicious recipe.

Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Muffins
makes 12 muffins

2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 c. organic sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. sea salt
1 egg
1 t. real vanilla
1/4 c. melted butter
1 c. buttermilk
2/3 c. real chocolate chips (we used miniature chips)

Preheat oven to 400F and either grease muffin tin or line with paper baking cups. Measure flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and chocolate chips into a large bowl and stir together. Whisk egg in a small bowl; stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Slowly whisk in melted butter. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened (don't over mix your muffins!). Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake about 15 minutes or until muffins are golden brown -- check with a toothpick to be sure they're done. Cool slightly in pan; remove muffins to wire rack. (For soaked muffins, see instructions here.)


We would love to know if you give any of our muffin recipes a try. Let us know how they turn out or if you put a different spin on them. :)

This is the 49th installment in what will be, Lord willing, our year-long muffin adventure: Muffin Mondays! 52 Mondays, 52 Muffins. There are 3 more to come, stay tuned!

    Chocolate....right up my alley :-)


  2. This muffin looks just perfect!

  3. These were wonderful! We added oat bran and used whole wheat flour. That all required a bit more liquid and so I just added rice milk until it seemed the right consistency. Got some of the best commendations yet at dinner last night!

  4. Mmm - another yummy sounding recipes. I'm loving your Muffin Mondays!

  5. Joanna -- Thanks for the feedback! So glad to hear this recipe was a success for you. :)

    Maria, Winnie, and Amy -- Thanks for your kind words. :)

    Blessings to all,

    I've copied several of your muffin recipes. I eat gluten-free, but it isn't hard to convert them.

  7. These muffins sound delicious. The buttermilk would make them lovely and rich, and I like how you have used whole wheat flour as well, for a delicious healthy treat! Thank you for sharing this post with Let's Do Brunch.

  8. Anon - So glad you're enjoying our recipes! Thanks so much for letting us know they work when converting to gluten free. :)

    These turned out delicious! I was scrolling through your muffin list this morning trying to find one that would match what we had on hand in the pantry here & decided upon this one. Midway through I discovered we were out of vanilla, (ugh) so I had to use lemon extract instead, but because I wasn't sure how it would taste, I only used 1/2 tsp. They turned out great & my family gobbled them down! That's saying a lot because the kids haven't been thrilled with the results of my newly "homemade" take on things :) Thanks for the recipe & I really enjoy browsing your site.

    1. Thanks for the kind words -- and welcome to Dole Valley! :)

      So glad you enjoyed browsing through our muffin collection and hope your family continues to enjoy all your homemade experimenting! I can speak from experience that their taste buds do adjust and soon enough, they will get used to and even prefer it! Blessings to you as you work on your own homemade pantry!
