Sourdough Discard Chocolate Chip Muffins

I know I shared sourdough discard cinnamon muffins last week. But I loved that recipe so much that I had to try it again.

But this time I made a few changes.

I ditched the cinnamon and nutmeg. I threw in some chocolate chips. And now I love these muffins even more.

Sourdough discard chocolate chip muffins have all the same fluffy, soft texture as the original cinnamon muffin recipe. But they also let the sourdough tang shine through.

Maybe I’m just a sucker for chocolate chips. After all, I have about a billion different chocolate chip cookie recipes.

But I really do enjoy these muffins.

They make for great breakfasts that you can eat during the week when you need something fast. And they use up a good amount of sourdough discard, so you don’t have to waste anything.
