Servings 12 muffins


  • 2 ½ cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Large Eggs, room temperature
  • ¼ cup Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • ¼ cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • cup Buttermilk , room temperature
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 ½ cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, plus extra for tops of muffins
  • Sparkling Sugar, for sprinkling over top of the muffins (optional)


  • Adjust the oven rack to the 2nd level position (just above center) and preheat the oven to 425ºF. Line a standard size cupcake or muffin tin with tulip style or standard size liners.
  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate large-size mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, cooled melted butter, vegetable oil, granulated sugar, buttermilk, and vanilla extract, mixing until fully incorporated.
  • Add in the dry ingredients along with the semi-sweet chocolate chips to the wet mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Using a 2-3 tablespoon-size cookie scoop or 2 spoons, divide the batter evenly into the 12 muffin liners. Top with a sprinkling of sparkling sugar and a few more semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional).
  • Bake for 8 minutes at 425ºF, then reduce the temperature to 350ºF (keep the oven door closed) and bake for an additional 12-15 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. The tops should also be light golden brown in color.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing muffins from the tin. Chocolate chip muffins are best served slightly warm, but enjoying them completely cooled is just as good!
