First of all, I’m going to give you a little backstory.

See, my husband bought a HUGE bag of chocolate chips about a month and a half ago.

They’ve been sitting in our pantry CALLING my name!

Every night when I get the I-have-to-eat-something-sweet hunger pangs, and I swear they’re brought on by my mind and not my stomach, I reach into the pantry, pour a LITTLE bit of chocolate chips in a bowl and mix them with peanuts.

It totally satisfies my sweet and salty snack craving.

BUT it was happening way too often.

Actually to the point where there was only about 1/3 of the BIG bag of chocolate chips leftover.

Yes, I have a problem with food in the house calling my name.

Sweet and Salty Craving

This kind of food craving is totally a thing though!

Check out what WebMD has to say about it.

So before my husband caught on that I had eaten through almost an entire large bag of chocolate chips over a relatively short period of time, I decided I’d make a batch of this easy chocolate chip muffins recipe for breakfast.

And now I’m the hero!

“Oh honey, you are so awesome for whipping up this batch of homemade treats for us for breakfast!”

A sweet breakfast the whole family will love

This was a seriously easy chocolate chip muffins recipe to make!

Needless to say, these little handheld mounds of goodness were delicious!

They’re moist on the inside and a little crispy on the outside with the added sugar on top.

In addition, if you’re a walnut girl like I am, you’ll love walnuts in these chocolate chip muffins!

I buy the whole walnuts, not chopped, and just throw them right into the mix.

But, don’t let their look fool you!

They’re so inviting but very filling!

I could only eat two for breakfast and I was totally full.

And while you’re at it, get yourself a good stand mixer to make life that much easier, especially on your mixing arm!

You totally deserve it after slaving in the kitchen!

These muffins were so good that between my husband, son, and me, all 12 of them were gone within a matter of days.

Add a pat of butter while they're still warm. Yum!

And so far, my husband hasn’t asked whatever happened to that huge bag of chocolate chips.
