My son is a freshman at Gunn High School in Palo Alto. He has chosen Food as a subject, something I find awesome! This recipe was handed out by the teacher and he made the muffins at home this morning. He used a mix of different chocolate chips; butterscotch, white, and semi-sweet. With great success.

Small comment: The recipe is filed under the Breakfast section of his binder. My son (as being Norwegian in the US) found this quite amusing. In Norway, muffins are a sweet threat eaten on special occasions, like birthday parties. Never ever would we eat this for breakfast back home:-) But hey – we are not in Norway anymore. Enjoy your breakfast!
