I love making muffins, and my family loves eating them. Lol! One of the biggest reason why I like making muffins is because it is so simple to make. Most or almost all of my muffin recipes doesn’t require a mixer, and is all done in a bowl. Making clean up very easy too!
Ever since the girls started at their new school, I have to pack snacks for them to bring to school. So every now and then the girls will ask for their favourite Double Chocolate Muffins. So using that recipe, I added a little more goodness to it by cutting down on the chocolate chips and added some anti-oxidant rich berries into the mix.
My girls and husband absolutely loved it! I had some guests over in the morning for a meeting, and they got to taste these freshly baked muffins. They loved it as well! Unfortunately, I ran out of wholewheat flour the day I made them. However, feel free to substitute 50% of the flour for wholewheat flour if you want a little more fiber in your muffins. 🙂
