One of the most disappointing feelings is biting into a chocolate chip muffin with like five pieces of chocolate it. That’s why these muffins have tons of chocolate chips in every bite! I always like to make all my muffins jumbo sized because when it comes to muffins the bigger the better but you can easily make these in a standard size muffin pan.

Ingredient Breakdown

All-purpose flour – this gives the muffins structure.

Baking powder – necessary to make the muffins rise.

Granulated & brown sugar – sweetens and tenderizes muffins. Either light or dark brown sugar will work.

Buttermilk – adds flavor, moisture and makes muffins super fluffy.

Butter – melted butter adds both flavor and moisture! I always recommend using unsalted butter but salted butter works if that’s all you have on hand, just be sure to omit the 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Eggs – helps bind the ingredients.

Vanilla extract and salt – enhances flavor. Always use pure vanilla extract instead of imitation for best flavor.

How To Make Jumbo Chocolate Chip Muffins

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk the melted butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk until smooth and well combined.

3. Fold dry ingredients into the wets until almost combined, leaving a few streaks of flour. The batter will be thick!

4. Gently fold chocolate chips into the batter until just combined. Do not over mix!

5. Evenly divide batter between muffin cups. If desired sprinkle with raw sugar and extra chocolate chips.

Pro Tips For jumbo Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • Weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale! Measuring ingredients by volume is not accurate; baking is a science after all!
  • Don’t over mix your batter! This will cause too much gluten development and nobody likes rubbery muffins so leave a few streaks of flour before adding the chocolate chips.
  • Sprinkle raw sugar on top to get that signature crunchy muffin top. You could also use sparkling sugar.
  • Fill your muffin cups 2/3 of the way full to get tall muffin tops. For a jumbo muffin pan I like to do 3 scoops of batter per muffin cup using this cookie scoop.
