DIY {Chocolate Chip} Little Bites Recipe

I love making things homemade for my family.

Baking & cooking are two things that I absolutely enjoy. And when I find a recipe on how I can make something on my own; something that I know that they’ll love, I jump right on it!

The other day, it occurred to me, that we go through a good deal of Little Bites at times. I mean, when they’re on sale, we’re like, “Stock up!” So I thought to myself, “Why not make my own recipe, my own batch & we can have different flavors, whenever they want, they’ll be here”. So with that, I took another recipe that I have & merged it with this one to create:

DIY {Chocolate Chip} Little Bites

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 large eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 buttermilk (or for a substitution use 1/3 cup whole milk and 2 tablespoon of lemon juice to make your own buttermilk for this recipe).

1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, and stir until completely blended. Next add in the eggs, vanilla extract, canola oil and buttermilk and then combine until blended. With a spatula or a large wooden spoon add in the mini chocolate chips, until blended.

Generously spray your miniature muffin tins with pan spray. Using a measuring spoon, scoop levels of one tablespoon of your muffin mix into each cavity of your baking pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.

Allow to cool completely before serving.

For freezing, divide muffins by 4’s into sandwich size Ziploc bags and then store all of the bags (about 6) into one large gallon size Ziploc bag.

When I first made these, I made up a batch of 24 bites and then stored them in the freezer only taking out a bag or two at a time, or as needed. If you think that your family is going to go through them more quickly, then six little bags in a week, then you can also keep this in the refrigerator until you are done with them.

I hope that your family enjoys these DIY Little Bites as much as mine did!
