NO SINK Chocolate Chip Muffins

My kids LOVE chocolate chip muffins.  If you read my blog, you already know that we have muffins every Sunday morning.  It's our tradition.  I usually make somewhat healthy muffins with applesauce, oatmeal, fresh fruit, etc but every once in a while, I make up a batch of their favorites.  The only problem was that the chocolate chips always ended up on the bottom of the muffin, leaving the top of the muffin bare.  I tried several things including thickening the batter to fix the problem with no luck until I discovered this little trick.

Best ever
chocolate chip muffin recipe

1 c. sugar (raw sugar is best)
1 c. milk
2 eggs
2/3 c. EVOO
1 tsp vanilla
1 c. quick cook oatmeal (UNCOOKED)
2 c. self-rising flour
1 bag of chocolate chips

shhhhere's the secret:  
Mix up the muffin batter but don't add the chocolate chips yet!
Pour batter into greased muffin cups and then add 5 chocolate chips to the top of each muffin.
*I left one muffin plain (for my weenie dog - see photo)
She gets a muffin on Sundays too!  
That's her only table food - don't judge!
Anyway, back to the trick - stick the muffins in preheated 400 degree oven for 5 minutes.  Set your timer and then remove them after 5 minutes.

Pour the remaining chocolate chips on to the tops of all the muffins (except the doggie's)
and replace pan in oven.  Cook for 15-18 minutes more.

You'll find these are the most perfect muffins with evenly dispersed chocolate chips throughout!
