Half and Half Muffins

Half and Half (Black and White) Muffin

Half and half muffins? Say what now? I have wanted to make these muffins for MONTHS. I usually ask my friends for muffin suggestions and back in February, J said "1/2 sweet 1/2 savoury". She was half joking but it gave me an idea. I remembered I had some white baking chips and thought I'd incorporate them into a half chocolate, half vanilla muffin. A better name would be a "black and white muffin" like the cookie but when I was adding my name to this month's list, I could only remember "half and half" so half and half it is. 

There are four other fun muffins to check out this Muffin Monday. Scroll down to visit them all!

Half and Half Muffins


240 grams flour 
100 grams sugar 
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk 
1/4 cup oil 
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder 
1 tablespoon milk 
1/4 cup chocolate chips, heaped
1/4 cup white chips, heaped


Grease or line a muffin pan. 

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt. In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla. 
Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold until barely combined. 
Put half of the batter in another bowl. Dissolve the cocoa powder into 1 tablespoon of milk and add to one bowl. Gently fold in. 
Fold chocolate chips into the chocolate batter and white chips into the plain batter. 

You'll need to carefully add the batter to the pans. I used two tablespoons and added a scant tablespoon of plain batter to one side and then a scant tablespoon of chocolate batter to the other side. I kept doing that until the muffin cup was a bit more than half full. It's tedious but the result is worth it. 
Add some additional chips to the tops, if you want. 
Bake. Cool. Enjoy.
