Everyday on our way home from picking up Penguin from swim team practice, the kids start dreaming up all kinds of things they'd like for breakfast. Monday they wanted Bushka's homemade granola, Tuesday it was doughnuts, yesterday it was cheesy scrambled eggs, and today they were after muffins. I knew once I got home, I could look at my Pinterest board & find something muffin-y with some chocolate. A while ago, I pinned Bakerella's Chocolate Chunk Muffins. Peacock & Turkey helped me make the muffin batter while Penguin went to
change out of her wet clothes hide in her room and read a book in hopes that I'd forget about her so she could spend the morning reading.
Bakerella's Muffins were quick & easy. From the time we got home, gathered ingredients, waited for muffins to bake, etc, we were sitting down to eat in less than hour. I doubled the recipe and got 24 nice-sized muffins ... more than enough for us, some saved for Dad, a large plateful to a neighbor who recently had a baby, and some to our favorite swim teacher along with a surprise visit at her work along with kid-made thank-you notes.
