Recipe NameChocolate Chip Mini Muffins Recipe
Prep Time10 minutes
Cooking Time12 minutes
Total Time22 minutes


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


1. Preheat Your Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a mini muffin tin with paper liners or grease it lightly to prevent sticking.

2. Mix Dry Ingredients

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make sure the ingredients are well combined.

3. Combine Wet Ingredients

In another bowl, beat the egg lightly, and then add the melted butter, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix until everything is well combined.

4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures

Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and gently stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are perfectly fine.

5. Add Chocolate Chips

Gently fold in the mini chocolate chips. The batter will now have that irresistible chocolatey goodness.

6. Fill the Muffin Tin

Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, fill each mini muffin cup about 2/3 full with the batter. This should make approximately 24 mini muffins.

7. Bake to Perfection

Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

8. Cool and Enjoy

Once done, remove the mini muffins from the oven and allow them to cool in the tin for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

These chocolate chip mini muffins are the perfect treat for any occasion. They’re great for breakfast, snack time, or even as a dessert. The mini size makes them irresistibly cute, and the combination of fluffy muffin and melty chocolate chips is pure bliss. Share them with family and friends, or savor them all to yourself. Either way, you’re in for a delightful culinary experience!
