Sweet Tooth Friday: Chocolate Chip Muffins

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on May 19, 2011

When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is pee. In case you were wondering.

The second thing I do is figure out how I can sneak some chocolate into an otherwise pretty healthy breakfast. Because I crave chocolate 24 hours a day. I’m so not kidding when I say that it’s the first thing I want to eat in the morning.

I may have a problem.

This recipe originally came from my mom, but I’ve modified it a little over the years. Because I’m like that, I can’t leave good enough alone.

Now I can confidently say that eating these muffins is by far the best way to start off your day. Go ahead, find something that’s better. If you do, send it my way, because I want a bite too.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

I mean seriously, how can you not drool over these babies? Maybe this post should have come with a disclaimer: napkin needed at all times.

Those muffins look amazing! I have a recipe that uses vanilla, but it’s too overwhelming – yours with buttermilk sound like a much better recipe!! :)

Also…I tried to use the button above the linky list and it didn’t want to work. But the one on the sidebar did work..not sure what was going on…it could just be Blogger being wonky!

I hope you have a chance to try the muffins, I’d love to know what you think. Also, the button should be working again. Thanks for letting me know.

3 Chels R. May 19, 2011 at 8:39 pm

Those muffins do look amazing! I will give em a try :)

4 Allison May 24, 2011 at 2:58 pm

I too, must figure out how to have even just a little bit of chocolate each day. LOVE chocolate chip muffins.

10 Allison May 24, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Glad I’m not the only one. Life just isn’t the same without chocolate first thing in the morning.

11 Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust May 19, 2011 at 10:07 pm

So, um, I think it’s totally meant to be that I have a cup of buttermilk left over from baking a cake. I need these muffins! Breakfast tomorrow, for sure. :)

12 Allison May 24, 2011 at 3:01 pm

It IS meant to be. Did you try them?

13 Jennifer May 19, 2011 at 11:12 pm

22 Allison May 24, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Chocolate chips are an every day theme for me. That’s why I have a handful or two every day. 😉

23 BrandyK May 20, 2011 at 8:08 am

Those muffins look so good! I love that you have whole wheat flour in them. I’m going to try them this weekend. Thanks for hosting this fun linky party. I linked some cupcakes and cookies. :) Happy Friday!

24 Allison May 24, 2011 at 3:05 pm

25 BrandyK May 24, 2011 at 3:56 pm

HI! Not yet, but they are on my “to bake” list. I’m going to do 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 regular flour. :)

29 Catalina May 20, 2011 at 2:46 pm

Oh, man, and I was afraid I’d be the only one wanting to eat chocolate in the morning 😀 I love to have chocolate for breakfast even though I try to eat something healthy (so let’s go with chocolate yoghurt or porridge with chocolate etc. 😀 ). Your muffins are beautiful! I really do like your photos, they’re so smooth and warm if you know what I mean :) Really nice!

30 Allison May 24, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Thanks Catalina! That means a lot to me.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, leaving a comment and directing me here to yours.
You have a very sweet blog – love it! And I can totally relate to the chocolate part.
I left a link to my recent experiment with the New York Times chocolate chip cookie recipe.
I look forward to seeing more delicious chocolate treats from you!

32 Allison May 24, 2011 at 3:09 pm

I’m so glad that you shared your chocolate chip cookies. I hope to see you again this week.

33 Bizzy May 22, 2011 at 12:15 pm

These muffins are better than cookies. That speaks high praise.

34 Allison May 24, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Awesome!!!! I’m so glad that you liked them.

Thank you so much for linking up to {nifty thrifty sunday}!
I hope to see you again tomorrow!

43 Christy D.@ organicprincess June 1, 2011 at 3:36 pm

I made these a week or so ago, and they turned out great. Funny thing was I was in the middle of measuring out my ingredients and got interrupted by my 7 year old, then my 17 year old, then my husband and finally my dad walked in. I lost track of the recipe and thought I had everything measured and ready. My 7 year old helped me put the ingredients in the mixer and away we went. I realized later that I forgot the sugar! They were already a hit, and I’m thinking about how I want to manipulate the recipe a little next time (and remember to add sugar!)

It is a fact that nidora is entirely new for the people but this product
for weight loss has been under observation and clinical
test from last 20 years or even more time under the guideline of Dr.
The excess glucose when not handled because there’s not enough insulin ends up as fat storage and hence weight gain. This helps
to improve digestion and allows your brain to receive the “I’m full” signal quicker before you stuff in too
much food.

This will make your joureney to weight loss hard, if not
impossible. But in and of themselves, they’re not necessarily setbacks; it aall
depends on how you handle them. How our mind adapts to fzilures will largely determine the condition of our inherited body.

* Replace breads and other starchy high carbohydrate foods with fruits
and vegetables. Keep this in your mind, it will guide you at the right direction in your journey of
weight loss. Some of the most asic advice about weighht loss is some of the oldest: watch your portions.

I do not even know how I ended up here, but I assumed this submit was once good.

I don’t realize who you are however definitely you’re going
to a well-known blogger in case you aren’t already.
