Chocolate Chip Muffins

With Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour out the way and everything mellowing down, life is finally beginning to settle down. To say that I’ve been busy at work is an understatement, it has been absolutely manic, but thoroughly enjoyable (aside from being constantly exhausted 😉 ). Watching the thousands of cyclists lining up at the start line and basking in the infectious atmosphere from start to finish has definitely stung me with the cycling bug. Completing a Cycle Tour is definitely on my bucket list – stop laughing…I can do it! 😀 109km’s piece of cake…ok maybe I should just stick to the cake… 

On that healthy note, let me share with you this quick and easy chocolate chip muffin recipe 🙂

Whenever a recipe calls for chocolate chips, I always opt for chopped up Cadbury’s Dairy Milk. I literally sit with the huge slab of Dairy milk and chop away – it’s time-consuming but so much more divine than baking chocolate chips.
