Mini Chocolate Muffins

These muffins were the perfect size for my chocolate fix in the morning.  What is it about mini muffins that make you feel like you can have ten without the calories counting!   I have been on a huge mini muffin/cupcake kick for this reason!  Try these for a wonderful breakfast treat!

Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins
Adapted from Nigella Lawson

1 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup milk
1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Put flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, sugar and chocolate chips into a large bowl.  Pour all the liquid ingredients into a large bowl and stir to incorporate.  Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, the batter will be lumpy.  Spoon batter into cupcake pans, lined with paper liners.  Sprinkle tops with additional chocolate chips and bake for 10 -15 minutes.
