These Chocolate Chip Muffins are really easy to make and always a hit. I use coconut oil but you can use melted butter if you prefer. I also drop the amount of sugar used to 1/2 cup when making for hubby and I as we really don’t like our muffins too sweet. This works well as the chocolate chips have a little sweetness in them.
You can make these with milk or dark chocolate though I prefer the dark chocolate. You could even use white chocolate or a mix.
