I'mmmmmm back...with muffins!
Well I did it, I mustered up the energy to bake a little somethin' somethin' ;) I honestly still don't feel too awesome, but my soul mate is coming in this week so I need to have some goodies made for him. Yes I know I spoil him rotten but he does the same for me so I can't complain, but I wouldn't anyways because I love it, and him!!!!!
So the title of the post sort of gives away what I'm going to share with y'all, but it's delicious none the less so I'm sure you'll read all the way through :) Here in good ol' Canadia, instead of Dunkin' donuts we have Tim Horton's! They have delicious coffee and treats, and one of my favorite treats is there chocolate chip muffins. Now I know what you're thinking, what's so great about a chocolate chip muffin? Normally nothing lol, but these are topped with coarse sugar that give it a little caramelized sweetness :) So when I came across this little gem of a recipe, I knew I had to make them.
Chocolate Chip Muffins
3/4c mini chocolate chips (I may have added a little more lol)
1Tbs baking powder
1/3c coconut oil
1 large egg
2Tbs brown sugar
3Tbs coarse sugar
1) Preheat oven to 400F. Spray muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray or line with paper.
2) Combine flour, chocolate chips, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and mix well.
3) Combine the milk, coconut oil, and egg in a medium bowl and mix well.
4) Add milk mixture to flour mixture and stir until just moistened. Fill cups 2/3 full.
5) Combine remaining sugars in a small bowl and mix well. Sprinkle on top of batter.
6) Bake muffins until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes. Cool in pan for about a minute.
These little yummy treats are just what I was hoping for ;) A delicious little snack, that's not to chocolaty or sweet. They taste better than the Tim Horton's one, sorry Tim's lol.

Now I have to plan some other little surprise for my love, but since he is my editor and reads my blog, I will not be able to share them with y'all. Not right away anyways lol. Maybe I'll do a mash up post while he's on the plane :) sneaky sneaky. For now I have some household chores to get to :p Until next time....
