Orange Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. orange zest
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 tbsp. flour

Heat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking, and salt.

In a separate bowl combine the orange zest, butter, vanilla, orange juice, sour cream, and eggs.

In a small bowl toss together the chocolate chips with the 2 tablespoons of flour until they are well coated.

Add the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until most of the dry ingredients are moist. Add the chocolate chips and fold to incorporate.

Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pan and top with a few extra chocolate chips, if desired. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the center of the muffins springs back when lightly pressed and the tops are golden brown. Cool in the pan for 3 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
