Sometimes you want a simple, easy recipe that you just know is going to be yummy. This is that recipe. It is Bakerella’s Mini Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffin recipe. These little guys are super easy to make and taste super delicious. They are perfect for breakfast, dessert or a mid-afternoon snack. They are also perfect for your husband to take on the boat for him and his buddy to snack on while scuba diving… not leaving any for his wife at home to eat.
That’s not exactly true. I think he left me one or two.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2/3 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips, plus more for sprinkling (I used milk, use what you like)
Preheat your oven to 350 & grease a mini-muffin tin (this makes about 24 mini-muffins). Whisk together your dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar – in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients – buttermilk, egg, syrup and butter – and stir until just combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir. Stir in chocolate chips. Baker Bee tip – always try your batter. This batter = yum.
Fill muffin tins 3/4 full.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake for 8-10 minutes… until tops are golden brown. See the muffin with lots of chips? That one was especially for Hubby.
Let cool for a couple of minutes in the pan and then gently remove… use a knife or a toothpick to get them out in one piece. They are tasty on their own, or dipped in maple syrup. Bakerella also suggests dipping them in melted butter.
