Breakfast On The Fly

My little man LOVES blueberry muffins.  He came downstairs SCREAMING for "boo nuffins!!!!" the other morning, but to his  {& my} dismay, we were out!!  Knowing he had a craving for muffins and that I hadn't been to the grocery store in TOO LONG, I quick googled a made-from-scratch recipe for muffins.  Landon would LIVE on chocolate {such a momma’s boy!} if we let him, so I knew that chocolate chip muffins were the next best thing to blueberry.  For a first time recipe I have to say that these little "nuffins" were pretty tasty.  Little Man snacked on them ALL.DAY.  We'll definitely make these for breakfast on the fly again!!


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup light-brown sugar

1/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup milk

1/2 cup butter -- melted and cooled

2 eggs - beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 package (12 oz) chocolate chips {I used the mini chocolate chips}

Preheat oven to 400 and spray your muffin tin with PAM. 

You’ll need a cute little {very serious} chef-in-training to help you with this breakfast.

In a separate bowl, mix together milk, eggs, butter, & vanilla until blended.  Add milk mixture to the flour combo & stir just to combine.

Now ask your chef-in-training to make sure there’s enough chocolate chips in the mix.  After all, he’s the expert.
