  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter softened at room temperature - 1 stick
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon powder vanilla bean powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup 2% milk
  • 1-¼ cup mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a muffin tin or line the cups with liners. In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer), cream the butter until smooth. Add 1 cup of the sugar and mix.
  • Add the eggs, vanilla, baking powder, and salt and mix. With the mixer running at low speed, add ½ of the flour, then ½ of the milk, and mix. Repeat with remaining flour and milk. Then add in the chocolate chips.
  • Use an ice-cream scoop or large spoon to fill the muffin cups ¾ full. Bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out. Enjoy immediately or cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.


Muffins make for a fast breakfast! Once cooled, store in an airtight container in the freezer. Simply take out what you need before bed and they will be ready to go when you wake.
