Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

Muffins are always a welcome treat with milk or coffee, no matter what time of day. Today I’m sharing a muffin recipe with you that, while can be enjoyed during any time of the day, is really perfect for breakfast. These orange chocolate chip muffins are the perfect combination of sweet and tart. They’re made with real oranges so that you can taste fresh citrus goodness in every bite. And, they have just the right amount of chocolate throughout to make them irresistible!

Here’s how to make them.

  • Prep time: 25 minutes
  • Cook time: 25 minutes
  • Total time: 50 minutes
  • Yields: 12 muffins

Equipment Needed

  • 2x medium glass mixing bowls
  • small bowl
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • silicone spatula
  • hand mixer OR whisk
  • silicone muffin pan

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 2 whole oranges
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Tips 

  • Do not open the oven door or you run the risk of ending up with flattened muffins.
  • Do not beat the dough like a cake as it will prevent the muffins from rising and make them heavy.
  • Never fill the muffin molds more than three-quarters full.
  • Place the muffins in the center of the oven.
  • Using vegetable oil results in lighter muffins because it prevents gluten formation in the flour. On the other hand, butter adds more fluffiness to the dough.
  • Silicone molds give better results than paper molds, which burn easily.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 380 F.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside.

Cut one orange in half, then press the juice out of it and set aside.

Peel the second orange and slice it into chunks.

Place the egg, sugar, milk, oranges pieces, juice, and butter into a medium glass mixing bowl.

Use a hand mixer or whisk to mix until all of the ingredients are well combined.

Pour the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients, mixing as little as possible until you obtain a moist batter.

Use a silicone spatula to gently fold in the chocolate chips.

Spoon the batter into silicone or paper-lined muffin pans.
