Kefir and butter chocolate chips muffins

Scorrere verso il basso

To start 2021 I made for you a simple, quick but very delicious recipe: kefir and butter chocolate chips muffins. How come these muffins are different from so many recipes we can already find online? Well personally, I find that kefir makes them particularly soft while the butter whipped with sugar adds the rich texture and flavor, similar to that of a cake. The chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips) obviously make everything super delicious.
