Recipe Ideas and Tips for Chocolate Chip Muffins
Once you start making these muffins you’ll want to try to make all kinds of variations based on this simple recipe. Some of my favorites:
- Add in some protein and healthy fats by adding in nuts like almonds or walnuts
- Add in some peanut butter or powdered peanut butter (like PB2) to make it more of a dessert
- Replace chocolate chips with fruit like blueberries or apples to make a sweet breakfast
Swapping Oil and Butter
To make these muffins healthier and lower calorie, I used applesauce. Applesauce is a great substitution for oil and butter and can be swapped in at a 1:1 ratio.
How to store Chocolate Chip Muffins
These muffins can be stored on the countertop for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
Muffins also freeze really well. Store in an airtight container and freezer for up to 6 months. To defrost, put them in the refrigerator for 24 hours before serving.
