These One Bowl Chocolate Chip Muffins never last long in my house! They are easy and so delicious!The One Bowl Chocolate Chip Muffins has mini chocolate chips


Guys, I have to brag about my cousin. Random, right? But when I tell you the brag, you’ll totally understand.

My cousin is on a . . . . REALITY TV SHOW.

Crazy, right?? So, what makes it even more fun is that she is on SyFy’s FaceOff, which if you haven’t watched it (and I hadn’t before Melissa made it on), they are doing complex make up. You know, like you would find on an alien in Star Wars. (If Melissa is reading this, she is totally shaking her head because I’m doing such a bad job explaining this.)

What makes it even better, besides the fact that she isn’t a 22 year old who is “falling in love” on the Bachelor, is that she is crazy talented and my whole family gets to see Melissa in action once a week. It airs Wednesday nights past Gavin’s bedtime, but he loves it so much that as soon as we get home on Thursday after school he wants to watch the episode from the night before.

You guys, she won the first episode. She is so talented! Though I would cheer for her regardless . . . it makes it way more fun to cheer for a winner. Anyway. GO MELISSA GO!

Also a winner . . . these muffins! (Hey, Melissa, I bet that’s the first time you were ever compared to a muffin.)  These guys come together in one bowl! Okay, if we are going to get really technical, you need another bowl to melt the butter. But lets not get technical. Let’s just eat muffins.

I first made these kind of on a whim for Quinn’s kindergarten class when she had snack duty. Girl has a thing for chocolate chips. And they were a huge hit! Not a single muffin left. So I managed to remember what I threw in that one bowl and made them for you! My kids flipped when they saw I had made them again and they have been having them left and right for snacks and breakfast part 2.

Two things about these muffins:

  • You really need the butter to cool. If you don’t, they will start to cook the eggs before you can get your muffins in the oven, and no one wants scrambled eggs in their muffins.
  • Make sure you don’t over measure your flour or your muffins will be too dry. You want to scoop the flour into the measuring cup with a spoon and then level off. If you scoop with the  measuring cup the flour will get packed and you will get a lot more.
  • I really love using this scoop (pictured above) to scoop out my muffins. It makes them all the same size, puts the perfect amount in each cup, and it makes it really easy to fill the muffin cups neatly.

      You are not in fact blind, Bonnie. Sorry about that! We switched how my recipes are displayed and a lot of the recipes didn’t decide to cooperate. It’s all there now!

  5. Terry says

    I prefer to weigh my ingredients! I’ll figure yours out in grams, since that doesn’t stay in my head….lol…and give them a try! The last recipe was dense and dry, following the recipe to an exact T. Frustrating!

    • Terry says

      5 stars
      I had to come back and leave a 5 star rating, because these are DELICIOUS!!! I weighed my ingredients, and instead of vanilla yogurt, I used regular fat flavored Greek yogurt. 2 were vanilla with chocolate chunks (I can’t remember the exact name), the other was caramel mocha. Chobani. Lisa! Try it with flavored yogurt…that mocha in there is delicious!! What a goof I made…I had them in their papers, in the oven, turned and spotted my melted butter still on the counter! Nooo! They were all scrapped back into a bowl, and I added the butter. I was so afraid they’d be dry and dense because of all the mixing! They were perfect! What a fantastic recipe! Even if you goof, you can fix it and they’re still perfect! Thank you!

      • Lisa Longley says

        Terry, thank you so much for taking the time to come back and tell me and I will definitely try that!
