Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

One of my favorite things about baking is being able to share treats with friends and family. I don’t know anyone whose day isn’t brightened by getting treats out of the blue! These chocolate chip mini muffins were a recent treat that I whipped up to take to a neighbor and they were such a hit with my family too, I just knew I had to share them with you.

The muffins are moist, tender, and have the slightest hint of coconut flavor and bursting with bites of chocolate. If you aren’t a coconut fan, just use refined coconut oil in this recipe–it doesn’t taste like coconut at all. I packaged my mini muffins up in a container I made with a paper plate (thanks Pinterest) lined with parchment paper and tied off with baker’s twine. Perfect for sharing with friends!

  2. In a large bowl, beat together the coconut oil, sugar, and salt. Add the eggs and vanilla.

  1. Love, love this recipe! I’m not a big fan of coconut so I would definitely do the refined coconut oil. Also, can you teach me that trick to make the paper plate basket?! SO cute!

  2. ok, coconut oil is everywhere! I already use it on my face, and these look delish so I have to try!

  3. I love the idea of having a slight coconut flavor with the muffins! Thanks for sharing on Hump Day Happenings : )
