Funfetti Sprinkle Chocolate Chip Muffins

Bakery-style, soft, fluffy sky-high muffins, packed with chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles!

These would be perfect with a hot cup of coffee, or for a fun Birthday breakfast treat.

My favorite part it that perfect muffin top! I love pulling the crispy edges off from the soft bottom, revealing the warm fluffy center full of ooey gooey, melty chocoalte chips.

These muffins are ultra moist, fluffy, buttery and make the perfect base for swapping out the mix-ins to totally customize them. You can leave out the almond extract, sprinkles and chocolate chips and add anything from fresh blueberries, to nuts and cinnamon.

The batter is super simple to whip together by hand, so you have fresh warm muffins in the oven in minutes, just in time for brunch or a special breakfast.
