Little Guy's Chocolate Chip Muffins

Note:   Mississippi doesn't see cold weather like we have had.      Baking and cooking has not only been a good way to warm the body, but it has been a good way to warm the house.    Little Guy likes warm breakfast.     He has never been a cold cereal or pastry kid.     He wants warm, stomach filling breakfast.      As a treat, occasionally he makes these for us.

Little Guy's Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. In a small bowl, beat egg, milk and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Little Guy. Too cute. And these sound great. I love seeing my little guy chow down in the morning. Knowing his tummy is full before a school day just makes me happy.
