King Arthur 100% Organic White Whole Wheat Flour is the best flour on the planet! And it’s a star performer in these luscious chocolate chip muffins.

1/2 cup (4 ounces) butter
1 cup (7 ounces) granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon extra-strong flavor, optional*
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (4 ounces) milk
2 cups (8 1/2 ounces) King Arthur 100% Organic White Whole Wheat Flour*
2 cups (12 ounces) chocolate chips
coarse sparkling sugar, for topping

*Add a little extra zing to your muffins with a complementary flavor: cinnamon and coconut extra-strong flavors are both good choices. Start with 1/8 teaspoon, adding more to taste.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease (or line with muffin cups, and grease the muffin cups) a standard-size muffin pan.

Beat together the butter, sugar, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and flavor (if you're using it) until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, then stir in the milk. Mix in the flour, then the chocolate chips.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups; they’ll be quite full. Sprinkle each muffin with a little coarse sugar. Bake the muffins for 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of one comes out without crumbs clinging to it (a little chocolate is OK!).
Yield: 12 muffins.

  • Delicious! I used half whole wheat & half all-purpose flour & very satisfied with the results. I omitted any "extra strong flavoring". They have a slight crunch to the tops which is perfect. I followed directions & made 12, but maybe my muffin pan is slightly smaller because instead of raising higher in the middle like I expected they just hung over the papers. So next time I plan to make 2 more muffins & will use just a little less chocolate chips.

  • Oh so yummy!!!! Made them exactly as stated and used almond extract as the complementary flavor. Golden base and delicious flavor of chocolate chips. Easy to make: ONE bowl!!! Great for a weeknight treat for the kids. Sparkling sugar adds a nice crunch and sparkle. Keeper!!

  • Awesome !! I cut the recipe in half, and ended up with 8 muffins. I did not add a complementary flavor, and I used mini chocolate chips instead of regular-sized. My sons (age 20 and 18) LOVED them - none leftover !!

  • Was looking for a quick and easy recipe one night and came across this recipe. They turned out great. So yummy. My first batch was made with the White Whole Wheat and milk chocolate chips and my second batch was made with all purpose flour and semi sweet chips. Both were delicious. Winner!

  • Delicious! Super easy recipe to follow, I omitted the sugar on top, since they are sweet enough as they are. They remind me of chocolate chip cookies. My kids love them!

  • Just made this recipe this evening. I followed the instructions only changing the flour. I just used the KAF whole wheat organic instead of the white wheat. Also, I did not add the sparkling sugar for the top as I thought it already had enough sugar. The family loves them! They have already eaten 6:) And are screaming they want more! This will be my new go to recipe for chocolate chip muffins.

  • Chocolate Chip (added Pecans) Muffins are delicious -- I followed the recipe, adding about 3/4 cup of toasted pecans, and omitting the sugar topping. Muffins turned out with a Golden sweet crunchy top, moist and not overly sweet inside. I will be making these again! Muffins are like a big chocolate chip cookie...Very yummy!
