Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Muffins

I'm on a muffin kick these days.

They're just so fantastically easy and convenient. And the fact that you can say you're snacking on a muffin instead of a cupcake makes you feel a little healthier too...

You can make regular or mini muffins with this recipe. I chose mini - more to go around!

Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Muffins
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup sour cream
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or mini chips, if preferred)

1. Preheat the oven to 350ยบ F.
2. Grease a muffin tin (or mini muffin tin, if preferred).
3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
4. In a separate medium bowl, combine the egg, sour cream, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined (be careful not to overdo it).
6. Fill each muffin spot 3/4 full with batter (you will need a spoon; it's a little thick for muffin batter).
8. Bake for 14-18 minutes for regular muffins and 11-12 minutes for mini muffins, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
