Chocolate Chip Vanilla Gems

Total Time
Prep 7 mins
Cook 18 mins

These are a tasty morsel of a muffin, that's great with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. My preference is to leave out the chips, but my kid's wouldn't have them any other way. The small size brings out the intensity of the vanilla. Use the batter with out the chocolate as a base for a delicious regular sized berry muffin.

Made a double batch of these great tasting muffins, one with the chocolate chips & one without, & I liked them both equally! After doing my own little taste test, all but another 4 were packed off to share at one of our weekly meetings, with none left to cart home! This is certainly a recipe worth keeping around! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

Yummy morning muffins!!! I made these for my 19 yo DS and his girlfriend for a snack about mid-morning. DS didn't care for them, said they were dry and not enough chocolate, but his GF said they were fine. After they baked we all added some butter to the cut sides, but have to agree with my son, they were on the dry side for me as well. But I disagree with him about it not being chocolately enough. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for ZWT 7.
