My hiatus from the kitchen (when given the choice) has affected my baking as well. The good thing about that is that I eat fewer sugary treats…the bad thing is I get to eat fewer sugary treats.
Yesterday Evan asked if we could bake. While we used to bake together all the time when Evan was little, we haven’t baked together in a long time. So even though I really, really, really wanted to stay on the couch, I agreed to bake. At first Evan wanted to bake cookies and but then he decided we should make muffins instead.
Muffins usually means banana muffins or blueberry muffins but neither of those got the seal of Evan approval. Since we were making a treat, I decided to find a chocolate muffin we could make. Of course Evan was ALL for that.
While there are a lot of double chocolate muffin recipes on the internet, a lot of them have meh reviews. I found this recipe on Instructables and it looked great. I had to give it a try.
Evan got all of the dry ingredients out of the pantry for me and helped with the mixing. Oh and he also stole LOTS of chocolate chips. I pretended not to notice. It was just like old times.
Double Chocolate Muffins
Delicious Double Chocolate Muffins
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 18 muffin cups by spraying with cooking spray or using paper liners.
- Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Add wet ingredients and stir until just mixed.
- Fold in chocolate chips reserving a few to sprinkle over the top of the muffins.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
- Cool on a baking rack.
Now we’ll have muffins for snacks this weekend and I’ll pop a few in the freezer for Evan’s lunch next week. Yes, these are a little more sugary than our normal muffins but they sure are good. Yum!
