Servings: 60 mini muffins or 12 standard-sized muffins
Calories: 81 kcal
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt*
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (or mini chocolate chips)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (for mini muffins) or 425 degrees F (for standard size muffins), and mist a mini-muffin pan with non-stick spray (or line a muffin pan with papers).
  2. Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Place the melted butter, Greek yogurt, milk, eggs, and vanilla in a large liquid measuring cup, and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry, and fold together until just barely combined (there should still be a few streaks of flour).
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips, and divide the batter equally between all wells of the muffin pan(s).
  6. Bake standard size muffins for 5 minutes at 425 degrees F, then lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and bake an additional 10 to 14 minutes. Bake mini muffins for 10 to 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the thickest part of a muffin comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.

Recipe Notes

*Sour cream or buttermilk can be substituted. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can make it by stirring 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar into 1 cup of regular milk. Allow the mixture to stand for 5 minutes, or until thickened and slightly curdled.
