I completely identify with Garfield. We both love lasagna and hate Mondays. To ease into the harsh realities of Monday I often turn to this recipe. It’s quick and easy and involves dark chocolate and syrup. I think Buddy the Elf would completely approve of this breakfast dish, Chocolate Chip Maple Muffins. In my defense, I usually combine it with some type of fruit so I don’t feel so guilty. Okay, okay, but then sometimes I eat two.
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 maple syrup (I use Trader Joe’s)
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (Depending on what the week holds, I might be generous on this)
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl and sift with a wire whisk.
3. In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir.
5. Bake 15 minutes.
Now you’re ready for the week! If you’re feeling adventurous, add some crumbled bacon on top.
