Are you sick of muffins yet?

Yeah, me neither.

I’ve tried yet another winning sourdough discard recipe: chocolate chocolate chip muffins. And I’m in love with how they turned out.

You wouldn’t think sourdough discard and chocolate would go together so well, but they do! And it’s lovely. The tangy flavor from the discard and the rich flavor from the chocolate make these muffins the ultimate breakfast snack.

And of course, you can never have too many chocolate chip recipes, am I right?
