Chocolate Chip Cinnamon muffins are so light and fluffy thanks to buttermilk. The flavor combo of the warm cinnamon with the chocolate chips is incredible!
Happy Sunday! It is bright and sunny here in NYC, a nice change from yesterday when it snowed literally the entire day. But I didn’t mind – it gave me an excuse to bake the day away, starting with these chocolate chip cinnamon muffins. Not that I need an excuse to bake all day 🙂 Plus when you’re all warm and cozy inside, the snow is so pretty. It made the city look so calm and peaceful. It wasn’t quite as pretty and peaceful when I left to go out to dinner. The streets were not plowed, so let’s just say our cab did not have the easiest time driving! Ah the joys of city living.
I have some great cookie recipes ready for you this week (if you follow me on Instagram, there’s a sneak peak of one!) but a girl can not live on cookies alone, right? So instead I have a cinnamon muffin recipe for you today! With chocolate chips! Hmm, anyone want to go to the gym with me later…?
I just couldn’t resist baking something for breakfast, and muffins are so easy and so tasty. I love that you can eat them just a few minutes after they come out of the oven, unlike quickbreads and yeast breads that really do better if you let them sit for awhile. I need instant gratification at breakfast time! I had some leftover buttermilk to use up, so I knew chocolate chip cinnamon muffins would be just perfect. Buttermilk makes these muffins so light and tender.
There is also cinnamon in the batter, which is one of my favorite flavors.The cinnamon complements the chocolate so nicely – I love chocolate and cinnamon together! These cinnamon muffins are the perfect thing to whip up this holiday season when you need something delicious for breakfast, but don’t have time to make anything too complicated! They will definitely be a hit.
