 7 tablespoons unsalted butter
 2/3 cup whole milk
 1 large egg
 1 large egg yolk
 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
 1 1/2 cup unbleached AP flour
 3/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
 3/4 teaspoon salt
 1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
 turbinado sugar for topping

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit with the rack in the middle. Prepare a muffin pan with liners.


Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Watch the butter as it cooks, it will sizzle, crackle & foam. The crackling & foaming will subside and the butter will begin to brown quickly after that. Remove from heat and let the butter cool for about 20 minutes.


Whisk the milk, egg & vanilla & cooled butter together in a bowl. In another bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Combine the wet & dry ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips.


Spoon the muffin batter in equal portions into the cupcake pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out virtually crumb free.


Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
