Who doesn’t love choco chip muffins? Especially since these are soo easy to make. These aren’t too sweet either and a perfect treat for any occasion. One of the reasons why I love this recipe is because it uses oil instead of butter. Butter annoys me as it has to get to room temperature and it’s difficult to measure as well. The other reason is that all these ingredients are usually available at home at all times, especially if you’re the baking type. These muffins aren't too sweet and I like it that way because the choco chips make up for it. This recipe makes 12 muffins


2 cups all purpose flour (maida)
½ cup white sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt (skip this if your using salted butter)
¾ cup milk (I used powdered milk and added about a tablespoon and a half to slightly warm water)
1/3 cup vegetable oil (I used sunflower oil, you may use equal amount of butter instead)
1 egg
¾ cup chocolate chips (I used Hershey’s semi sweet choco chips and they are awesome)
1 tsp. vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C
Line a baking pan with muffin cups
In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Mix well
In another bowl, combine milk, egg, vanilla and oil
Add dry ingredients and mix until all ingredients are blended in. Batter may be lumpy.
Add in the chocolate chips and give it a mix
Spoon the mixture into muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. If you’re using a convection microwave, bake for about 5 minutes on HIGH MIX. Cool for about a minute and serve warm.

Stop drooling now and head to your kitchen asap! Happy baking!!


  1. try buttermilk instead of milk. makes it more moist

  2. Buttermilk would require some effort i assume unless its readily available and that would defeat the purpose of the name easy peasy LOL. But i love your suggestion and going to definitely try it out with my next recipe. Thank you.
