Moist & Fluffy Chocolate Chip Muffins
Visual learner? Watch this Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe from start to finish!
Now and then I go through an intense happy homemaker streak. I’m not sure what it is that arouses my domestic prowess, but it’s in full swing!
I’ve made a homemade breakfast every morning, ironed the kid’s clothes for the week, and dinners are on the table by 5:30.
Currently, I have homemade elderberry syrup simmering away on the stove, and yall…I even pulled out my sewing machine to hem up some curtains.
I know, what the frick right? “Harpo who dis woman!?”
Don’t feel impressed yet though.
This stage usually lasts for about 3-5 days before I crash and burn, chile. I go back to yelling:
“We are having leftovers so stop asking me what’s for dinners!”
“Do yall not see the laundry basket overflowing? Stop stuffing clothes in there and take them to the washing machine LORD JEEZUS!!!!”
And my favorite-
“Pick these toys up off this floor! You don’t have a maid! If I have to tell yall again, these toys are going in the trash! Try me if you want to!”
Hahaha! So lets’ just all enjoy this streak while it’s hot which brings me to muffins! Oh my dear sweet new addiction, muffins.
I’ve been making all kinds of homemade muffins for our morning coffee. My hubby is a happy man right now because to him coffee + dessert is the only way to start the day.
I’m seriously starting to prefer muffins with my coffee over doughnuts! They are so easy to prepare and made in just about any flavor under the sun.
Today I want to share with you these bomb Diggity chocolate chip muffins I made yesterday.
We usually aren’t fans of adding chocolate chips to things other than chocolate chip cookies but my oh my! These were amazing!!
I followed my blueberry cream cheese muffin recipe, only swapped out the cream cheese for sour cream and blueberries for chocolate chips. Oh and nixed the lemon extract.
Heaven. A soft, moist, warm, chocolaty oasis! (sometimes my descriptions crack me up.)
The sour creams give it such a moist, dense yet fluffy texture. You could seriously get away with calling these muffins, “Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Muffins.” No one would question it because that’s what they taste like to me.
I hope you enjoy these chocolate chip muffins as much as we do!

These were delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe 🙂
These are very moist and fluffy. They were a little too tangy for us with the buttermilk + sour cream. Normally we like sour cream in things, but combined you can really taste it. If that’s not your thing, you might want to adjust accordingly or add more sugar and salt. They were all eaten though!
These look soo good!!! Can’t wait to try.
I goofed up and these STILL turned out yummy. (I forgot to add in the buttermilk at all!) I can imagine how much more moist & fluffy these would have been if I had done it right. I will definitely make these again; thanks for a great recipe! I had been searching for a chocolate-chip muffin recipe similar to the ready-made little snack pack ones you find a the grocery store. I even reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup & they were plenty sweet for us.
How are these for freezing?
I have only ever bought box muffin mix. But I’m so glad I came across this recipe because I will not buy a box again. This is an amazing recipe. They were so moist and delicious! Definitely a FIVE star recipe!!!!
