Perfect Morning Muffins: Whole wheat chocolate chip

In search of the perfect morning? Start it with these and you’ll be well on your way. These are a lot lighter (given they’re only half whole wheat) than the usual buttermilk whole wheat muffins I make but they’re a new favorite. There’s another batch coming out of the oven in just a few minutes. If you’re looking for a sweeter morning fix, check out last week’s recipe for homemade glazed donuts!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 C white flour
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 C white sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 C milk
  • 1/2 C vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 C rolled oats
  • 3/4 C chocolate chips 


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin pan or line with baking cups (makes 12). 
  • In a medium bowl, mix flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk milk, oil and egg together and add to dry ingredients all at once. Mix it until all combined (the batter will still be a little lumpy). Stir in rolled oats and chocolate chips. 
  • Fill the cups about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let them cool for 1 minute before removing them from the pan. They’re best if served warm! (although if eating them later, sprinkle a little bit of water and microwave them for 7 seconds šŸ™‚



They’re as good as they look, promise šŸ˜‰ Planning on making them soon? Pin the recipe so you have the recipe close!

    1. When you sub applesauce for oil is it one to one? Unsweetened applesauce? I’ve never tried but would like to!

  1. These muffins look delicious !! But I was wondering If I can replace the whole wheat flour by normal flour and by what can I replace the rolled oat?

  2. These were super delish and my kids loved them! I used all fresh ground wheat and coconut oil. I cut back on the chocolate chips a bit, because I didn't want to regret breakfast. Ha ha! šŸ™‚ So good slathered with butter. šŸ™‚

  3. Found these through Pinterest and made them. Pretty good, a bit dry. I added a small bit of vanilla, but it didn't help much. If I get a mouthful of muffin that DOESN'T have a chocolate chip, then it's just kinda meh. But tastes really good with the chocolate, and I froze some to take to work.

    A note on your recipe: You never mention actually adding in the oats and chocolate chips. (Obviously I did it last, but it should at least be in the recipe.) Also, 3tsp=1 Tbsp, so your baking powder measurement just seemed a bit odd. (However, it was easier to use a teaspoon in my baking powder container, so I guess it's a wash?)

    1. Oh thanks for the catch -I went ahead and updated it šŸ™‚ And for me the tablespoon doesn't fit in my baking powder either so I always measure baking powder in teaspoons.

      I've been adding a bit of honey to mine recently to make the more moist!
