Yield: 12 muffins

Ingredients:
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk see note
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together oil, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla until blended. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

  4. Spoon batter evenly into muffins cups. Bake for 5 minutes. Without removing muffins from the oven, reduce temperature to 325 and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes (muffins will bake for a total of 15-17 minutes) until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove muffins from the oven and allow to cool before serving.
Notes:
  1. I tried using butter in place of oil in these muffins, but it made them too dry.
  2. I don't always have buttermilk in my kitchen, so I use the following substitute. I mix it up before getting out the other ingredients and then it's ready to go. In a liquid measuring cup, add 1 teaspoon white vinegar, then add milk to make 2/3 cup.
