  • Cooking Method: Baking
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 20 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: American


  • 1 and 3/4 cups (220g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (55g) brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup (240ml) whole milk
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (175g) chocolate chips

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract until well mixed.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix. Lumpy is our new best friend.
  5. Gently fold in the chocolate chips. Avoid eating too many at this stage. Or don’t. I won’t judge.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top if desired for extra chocolatey love.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs. If it comes out with chocolate, you’ve hit the jackpot.
  8. Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Or until you can’t bear it anymore and dive in.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Try swapping out the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or even chopped nuts if you’re feeling adventurous.
  • Garnishing Options: For some fancy flair, dust the tops with powdered sugar or drizzle with melted chocolate. Instant style points!
  • Cooking Tips: Don’t overmix your batter—lumps are good. Also, for super moist muffins, add a dollop of Greek yogurt or sour cream to the wet ingredients. You can thank me later.
