These easy mini chocolate chip muffins are delicious!

These mini chocolate chip muffins are my kids’ favorite muffin recipe.

They are inspired by my favorite greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins, but made into mini muffins!

My little ones devour these muffins and I love eating them myself for a snack or breakfast.

These chocolate chip muffins are made with wholesome ingredients like greek yogurt and maple syrup, so fluffy, and taste amazing!

We love mini muffin recipes for easy snacks and mini banana muffins, mini blueberry muffins, mini pancake muffins, and mini pumpkin muffins are more favorites.

These muffins are so simple to come together and don’t take long to bake, since they are mini sized.

How to make chocolate chip mini muffins

Step 1: Add the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl: flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Whisk to combine.

Step 2: In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients for the muffins together. Whisk the greek yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla, and melted butter until combined. Whisk in the eggs.

I love using greek yogurt in muffin recipes because it adds such a great fluffiness to the muffins. These healthy chocolate muffins are another favorite of ours that uses greek yogurt.

Once you have combined the wet ingredients together, it’s time to finish mixing the muffin batter.

Step 3: Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, until just combined. Do not over mix as this can result in dense muffins.

Step 4: Fold in the mini chocolate chips into the muffin batter using a rubber spatula.

Top the muffin batter with additional mini chocolate chips.

Step 6: Bake the mini chocolate chip muffins at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow to cool several minutes, then run a knife along the edges to remove the mini muffins onto a wire cooling rack.

How to store

Keep any leftover mini muffins in an airtight bag or container in the fridge and eat within 3-5 days. I like to keep mini in a ziploc bag in the fridge as they last longer than on the countertop.

My kids and I usually eat the whole batch within a few days. It’s hard to just eat one when they are so good!
