Chocolate Chip Muffins

This past weekend, I didn’t feel like the normal weekend breakfast… I was all smoothie-ed out, wasn’t keen on toast or porridge or  cereal … or fruit … or… but I was feeling up for something on the sweet side…

So I decided a little bit of baking was an order… because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t enjoy a freshly baked muffin still warm from the oven for breakfast, eh??? (Especially when ones husband wakes one up at 7am on a Sunday morning concerned that one has overslept and will be late for work… forgetting that it is Sunday… and you have the whole morning still ahead and you can’t go back to sleep!)

I found this recipe on the BBC Good Food Website and have to admit that it was super easy to make and ready very quickly.

Would I make it again? Yes – but this time I would use normal chocolate chips instead of the dark chocolate chips that I had used – as the darker the chocolate, the more bitter the taste. (HIM likes them sweet)
