Starting the Day!

So we are running low on cereal and have no goat milk for dd2.  So why not make muffins with the girls?  Dd1 wanted chocolate chip here is a new recipe we tried!

Chocolate Chip Muffins
Taken from the MOMYS Cookbook
Tested on August 21, 2010 by DC and YCGP.


2 c. Whole Wheat Flour
2 c. White Flour
1 c. Sugar
2 T. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1 Egg
1 1/2 c. Milk
2/3 c. Vegetable Oil
1 c. Chocolate Chips


In a large bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients.  In a small bowl, beat the egg, milk, and oil together.  Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4's full.  Bake at 400* for 18-20 minutes for muffins, or 45 minutes for quick bread, in two greased bread pans.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack.  Yields 24 muffins.

Guinea Pig rating:  ****  (4/5)

What I did:  I skipped the salt, used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and my flour is already combined 1/2 white, 1/2 wheat already.
What will I do next time:  Switch the muffin pans half-way through the cooking time so that one pan's bottoms won't be dark and the tops of the other pan won't be darker than the bottom pan.
