An buttery, moist muffin studded with chocolate chips. The perfect breakfast treat!

If I were to ever write a cookbook (which I am really never planning on doing), I would do a muffin cookbook. I love muffins. I don’t know what it is about them, but they excite me. Yeah, I’m kind of weird like that. Maybe it’s the fact that you are almost eating a cupcake for breakfast. Or maybe it’s because they are so easy to throw together. And the fact that there are about a million different recipes out there for muffins, that’s always a plus, too! I definitely have my go-to recipes, but I love to try out new recipes. And if it were up to me, I’d try out a different muffin recipe every Sunday morning!

So I was super excited when I had the chance to make some muffins for a little breakfast get-together. I made the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Muffins that I already posted about along with these Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Muffins. And wow – I chose 2 pretty awesome recipes to try out!!

These muffins are yet another Pinterest discovery. And they come from a fabulous blog that I spotlighted just a week ago – The Curvy Carrot. I couldn’t stop thinking about these muffins after I first saw them, and knew they would grace my table sooner than later. I would have jumped up and made them right away, but I don’t think I had any sour cream on hand when I first saw the recipe!

I’ll be honest – these really are more like a cupcake to me than a muffin – but it didn’t mean I loved them any less! These are SO good. They were everything that I was hoping for. Super moist, full of buttery, chocolate-y goodness.  These probably aren’t an every day muffin, but if you are feeling like a little cheat, these are definitely the way to go!  Luckily I was able to give most of them away at the breakfast I went to, otherwise I think I would have eaten them all myself. (Yes, I do have a bit of a self-control problem…)

This is a recipe you’ll want to whip up for a special breakfast this weekend!

    By the way, I really like the layout and theme of your blog, and the way that you display your recipes. Maybe we could share tips sometime soon?

  5. Beautiful muffins! I love how moist sour cream makes muffins, cakes, cupcakes! These look great!

    I have this recipe pinned, too! Pinterest makes the world a much smaller place – as if the Internet didn’t already do that. 🙂 They look awesome! I can’t wait to give them a try, myself.

    I just love muffins too. They are handsdown my favorite thing to bake- there are endless combinations out there, and they can be both breakfast or dessert. And I don’t know what it is about muffins, but my 3 year old who never has a very big appetite will scarf down muffins one after another.

  16. Claudia says:

    These are amazing!! The addition of the sour cream makes them absolutely perfect.
