Mini Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins
I made these to bring over to a friend's house for brunch. They are so easy to make and are perfect alongside some sort of savory dish (we had them with a frittata and a salad). Since they aren't the texture of most muffins, but instead are a bit chewy, they aren't so great on their own. Serve them dunked in maple syrup!
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Sift together with a wire whisk.
In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until combined.
Stir in chocolate chips. Reserve a few chips to sprinkle on the tops.
Bake for 8-9 minutes.
Let cool slightly and remove from the pan. You may need to use a toothpick around the edges to separate the pancake muffins from the pan.
Serve with maple syrup for dipping (or pouring!)
