So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday's Meal

or, er, breakfast.

Today is back to school day from spring break. One of my children's (as well as us adults) favorite breakfasts is Chocolate Chip Muffins. You could also put peanut butter chips or any other sweet addition as well as nuts, sunflower seeds or I suppose even things like dates and raisins in them. So I hope you enjoy them.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup margarine, melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Mix in chocolate chips. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture. In a small bowl mix together milk, egg and margarine. Pour into dry ingredients. Blend just until moistened. Spoon batter into greased muffin tins. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Makes one dozen muffins.

I'm looking forward to trying this next week for our Spring break!

My kids are always happy when I make these. I hope yours like them too.

Once you get the hang of them, you can make them on school mornings too.

Let me know what they think, everybody.

Sounds yummy! I was thinking it might be good to make a mix with this recipe that I could pull out and make quickly. I think I might try that.

Actually, I have been known to put the dry ingredients together in a covered bowl on the counter the night before. And to put the three wet ingredients mixed together in a bowl in the fridge. Then in the morning, all you do is dump them together and put it in the muffin tin to bake.

It hadn't occurred to me to mix up the dry ingredients to keep in the pantry though. Hmmm.
