Golden Chocolate Chip Muffins (King Arthur Flour)

King Arthur 100% Organic White Whole Wheat Flour is the best flour on the planet! And it’s a star performer in these luscious chocolate chip muffins.
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) butter
  • 1 cup (7 ounces) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon extra-strong flavor, optional*
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) milk
  • 2 cups (8 1/2 ounces) King Arthur 100% Organic White Whole Wheat Flour*
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) chocolate chips
  • coarse sparkling sugar, for topping
  • Add a little extra zing to your muffins with a complementary flavor: cinnamon and coconut extra-strong flavors are both good choices. Start with 1/8 teaspoon, adding more to taste.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease (or line with muffin cups, and grease the muffin cups) a standard-size muffin pan.

Beat together the butter, sugar, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and flavor (if you're using it) until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time; then stir in the milk. Mix in the flour, then the chocolate chips.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups; they’ll be quite full. Sprinkle each muffin with a little coarse sugar. Bake the muffins for 25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of one comes out without crumbs clinging to it (a little chocolate is OK!).
Yield: 12 muffins.
