Chocolate Chip Muffins

Friday, August 26, 2011

I can't claim that these muffins are actually good for you, but they aren't as bad for you as other chocolate chip muffins. Whole-wheat pastry flour adds some fiber, and keeps the muffins tender, while canola oil means we don't need to use butter. As for the chocolate chips, well, they wouldn't be chocolate chip muffins without them, now, would they? So use miniature chocolate chips, which ensure more little chocolate chips per muffin than normal-sized ones.
