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 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.
