A Spoonful of Sugar!

Until today, these were my kids favourite muffins...they kept asking for them over and over and over again! Then, I had the nerve to make Chocolate Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins and now they have a new favourite!

So here goes, you will need...

1.5c Flour
1.5tsp Baking Powder
.25tsp Baking Soda
.25tsp Salt (I never put in salt, do you?)
.5c Packed Light Brown Sugar
1 Egg
.5c Unsalted Butter, Melted
1c Sour Cream
1.5tsp Vanilla
1c Chocolate Chips
2Tbsp Redpath Turbinado Sugar (this is really important - go buy some!)

Preheat oven to 400F (I always forget to do this part ahead!)
Grease 12-cup muffin pan.

Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
Whisk brown sugar, egg, butter, sour cream and vanilla in a medium bowl.
Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until blended.
Gently fold in chocolate chips....mmmm...
Divide batter equally among cups (I always double my recipes and make at least 24 at a time...12 just isn't enough for us! Sprink with Turbinado Sugar.
Bake in a preheated oven for 19-21mins or until tops are gold and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Hi Heather!

Janet here from my new post in snowy Alberta.

I can't get on Facebook from work to ask you, but I was wondering if you have any good recipes for granola bars?

I will also add that I perused through your latest posts...the Halloween buffet was great! I love how your kids helped you come up with ideas. They are so creative.

TTFN Creative Lady!
