  • 2 cups all-purpose flour , sifted or otherwise aerated (see my note below)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup Greek yogurt (I used 2% plain Greek yogurt)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


Important note about properly measuring flour using measuring cups:

  1. The proper way to measure flour using measuring cups is to aerate it first. This is done either by sifting flour, or aerating it by fluffing it up and whisking it well, then spooning it into the measuring cup, then carefully removing any excess flour with a knife. If you just stick that measuring cup in the bag of flour and scoop some out, you will get a lot more flour than what the recipe calls for. Do aerate the flour, or you will end up with dry dough! :)

How to make muffins:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line muffin cups with muffin liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, white sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  3. In a separate large bowl, add vegetable oil, 2 eggs, and Greek yogurt and whisk to combine.
  4. Add flour mixture from step 2 to the liquid mixture in step 3 and mix just enough to combine.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips into the batter from step 4.
  6. Fill muffin cups with the muffin batter about 3/4 full. Bake for about 20 minutes in the oven, or until toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
