This is a definite kid favorite around our house! Anytime our Emily takes a snack to school, like now, for CRCT, the state wide test, she requests Chocolate Chip Muffins. Heck, she even wanted them for her birthday! I make them in mini form as kids can take more than one if they like them, because if they take a big one and don’t eat the whole thing, the rest ends

up being dumped. Call me old school, but that just hurts. I rather have left over muffins devoured by children grabbing some on their way home or teachers enjoying them than any of my baked goodies landing in the trash!

These are even made with white whole wheat flour, which is  just ground from a lighter kind of wheat that does not give your baked goods the typical drier, harsher whole wheat taste, but still delivers all the whole wheat goodness! This is a King Arthur Flour recipe, I adapted slightly … I just can’t not change something 😉

White Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (I’ve used buttermilk before)
  • 2 cups King Arthur 100% White Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips (we prefer dark)

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease (or line with muffin cups, and grease the muffin cups) a standard-size muffin pan or two mini muffin pans.

– Beat together the butter, sugars, baking powder, salt, and vanilla until fluffy.

– Beat in the eggs, then stir in the milk or buttermilk.

– Mix in the flour, then the mini chocolate chips.

– Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups and level out slightly by shaking the pan side to side a few times.

– Bake muffins for 30 minutes or mini muffins for 20 minutes or until tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean (at least of muffin batter).

– Let cool for 10 minutes in muffin pan and place muffins on wire rack to cool after that.

Enjoy 🙂
