Tips and Techniques

  • For dairy free muffins, use coconut oil in place of butter and make sure that the chocolate chips you use are labeled as dairy-free.
  • Press extra chocolate chips onto the tops of the muffin batter prior to baking to ensure that there are chocolate chips on the top of every muffin, if desired.
  • Leftover muffins can be stored in an airtight container lined with a paper towel. Consume within 3-4 days.
