Easy chocolate chip muffins recipe

This simple melt and mix muffin recipe is an old favourite in our house. It's great for lunch boxes or after school snacks. The only trouble is you won't be able to keep up the supply.

Serving Size:

Makes 12



  • 2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 60 g butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup choc chips


Preheat oven to 200˚C (180˚C fan-forced).

Grease a 12 hole muffin pan with cooking spray or butter and line with patty cases.

Sift the flour into a large bowl and then add the sugar. Stir it all together to combine.

Melt butter in the microwave (about 30 seconds or less should do it).

Combine the egg and milk together - beat with a fork.

Add the melted butter, milk and egg mixture plus a teaspoon of vanilla essence to the dry ingredients in the large bowl.

Now add the chocolate chips and gently mix with a spoon until it is just combined.

Spoon mixture evenly into the muffin tin, about one tablespoon per muffin case.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack (or better yet, eat them hot, straight out of the oven, Yum!)


  • This is the perfect basic muffin recipe that be adjusted by adding different ingredients.
  • Substitute blueberries or sultanas for the choc chips if you want a healthier option.
  • For the lightest, fluffiest muffins, be careful not to over-mix these. Just stir it all together until combined.
