Chocolate Chip Muffins

Baking is therapeutic.  The measuring, pouring, mixing, rising, and kneading all calm my brain's chaos and helps make sense of the craziness.  Almost every weekend, I feel the need to turn on the oven and bake some cookies or bars to relieve the stress of that week.  

Punching down dough can relieve the day's frustration. 

Scraping out batter remnants from the bowl gives me so much satisfaction. 

Plus, having a delicious and tangible final product makes you feel oh-so-much-better.  



These chocolate chip muffins are simple and classic.  They're perfect as a quick breakfast item to bring to a friend's, class, or work. 


Recipe

3 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
1 1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 lg eggs
1 stick butter, melted and cooled
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat to 375 degrees. Line muffin tin. 
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt in large bowl.
In medium bowl, whisk yogurt and eggs together until smooth. 
Fold yogurt mixture into flour mixture with rubber spatula until just combined. 
Fold in melted butter.
Fold in chocolate chips.

Bake 16-20 min, until golden brown and inserted tooth pick has few crumbs. Makes 22 muffins.
