These Chocolate Chip Muffins with two kinds of berries are packed with juicy summer fruits and sweet chocolate morsels. They're perfect for breakfast on the go, entertaining, or afternoon snacks! And your kids will love them!
We love muffins in our house.
They're so easy to whip together with a variety of flavor combos. They can be sweet, savory, or both - and they're the perfect snacks for busy families on-the-go!
While classic Blueberry Lemon Muffins reign supreme, and Apple Cinnamon Veggie Muffins are fave healthy snacks, sometimes I like to combine our love of spring and summer berries with our year-round love of chocolate.
Let's not lie: I love any opportunity to incorporate chocolate, and have proudly passed along this chocolate adoration to our children.
Making Double Berry Chocolate Chip Muffins
These Double Berry Chocolate Chip Muffins are packed with fresh raspberries and blueberries, but if those berries are not quite in season when you are ready to make these, go for frozen. We always have several bags of frozen fruit from our summer berry picking adventures, and when those run out, I love our local grocery store's organic frozen berries. You'll see I used a mix of fresh and frozen in this particular batch of muffins.
You can also use strawberries, blackberries or marionberries in addition to or instead of the raspberries and blueberries.
I use a mix of semi-sweet chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chunks, mainly because I love the way the chocolate chunks tend to hold their shape and give you more of a powerful chocolate punch with each bite. But you can use all chocolate chips if that's what you have on hand.
The streusel topping is pretty easy to make, and I use it for a lot of muffins that we make. Of course, you can omit the streusel topping if you prefer, but I really do think these taste so much better with it!
