Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is a recipe I adapted from one I found at  The original recipe is for blueberry muffins. I've used this recipe with blueberries and it turned out well but I think it could use a crumb topping or sprinkle of turbinado sugar on top.  As chocolate chip muffins they were good as is.  If you like them really chocolatey you could add more chocolate chips.

2 cups minus 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 egg
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (or 1 cup blueberries)
1 tsp vanilla powder

Heat oven to 400 F.  Line 12 muffin cups with liners.  In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, chocolate chips, vanilla powder and salt.

In a large bowl, combine milk, oil and egg.  Blend well.  Add dry ingredients all at once, stir until dry ingredients are moist (batter will be lumpy).

Fill cups 2/3 full.  Bake for approximately 20 minutes (mine were done in 17 minutes).


  1. Where did you buy the vanilla powder?

  2. I had bought the vanilla powder from The Seafood Depot on Aviva Rd (same road as the Eddie Bauer Outlet). When I go I buy a whole bunch but now I'm out. I don't know how authentic this is. I'm gonna order the real vanilla powder online since I am low.

  3. I read recently that you can find non alcoholic vanilla extract or powder in health food stores...I'm gonna check it out the next time I go to the mall.

  4. Thanks Asi! Let me know if they sell them in health food stores!
