  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin liners; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine egg, sugar and butter. Mix until creamy. Add sour cream and vanilla. Now slowly add in the dry ingredients until combined. Finally, fold in chocolate chips.
  • Divide the batter between the muffin liners, filling them two-thirds of the way full. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


  • Consider adding extra ingredients to the batter for a boost of flavor and texture! Add dried fruit such as raisins or cranberries or chopped pecans. Be sure not to exceed a total of 1 cup of extras.
  • Add in a ripe mashed banana for added flavor.
  • Serve warm with a pat of butter for the most delicious results.
