Easy Peasy Chocolate Chip Muffins

Muffins are great when you need something sweet and you need it quick! No whisking, no icing, no fuss and a great way to use up the chocolate chips found in the reduced aisle of the supermarket (but chop up a bar of chocolate as a thriftier alternative).

Chocolate Chip Muffins Easy Recipe

What a lovely weekend treat and all for just £1.10 for a batch of 12. This was the first recipe I’ve made since I tried out shopping at Aldi – more on that to come, but there’s definitely a noticeable difference in the cost of milk, butter and eggs, which is helping to make baking thriftier!
