Chocolate and Strawberry Muffins

These aren’t really a health food, they’re a heck of a lot closer to a cupcake than a bran muffin. But M wanted something easy for breakfasts and I managed to put these together with stuff we had in the house, which is always a win in my book!

Makes 12-15 muffins

You’ll Need:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 large eggs
1 cup milk (I used skim)
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanila
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, chopped
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the over to 400. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, butter and vanilla. Gently stir dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Add in strawberries and chocolate chips, taking care not to over mix. You don’t want to batter smooth, that leads to tough muffins. Divide between muffin cups and bake for 12-15 minutes, until they are done (I check with a toothpick). Let cool in pan for a 2-3 minutes before removing from pan and let finish cooling on a wire rack.
