These Freezer Chocolate Chip Muffins are our favorite for breakfast, snack, dessert or any time! They are quick to mix up and great for meal prep!

These Freezer Chocolate Chip Muffins are so great to have in the freezer! They are a great meal prep muffin in the freezer, ready to go in the refrigerator or even with the dry ingredients ready to go in a Ziploc bag!

Even with no prep made ahead of time, it doesn’t take long to have these Freezer Chocolate Chip Muffins ready to eat. Mix together a few wet ingredients and a few dry, add chips, bake for 18 minutes and you are ready to eat. Yum!

My oldest son especially loves these. When I know he is coming to visit, I always make a big batch for everyone to eat while he is here and for him to take home with him too.

They freeze well so can be made ahead or frozen to take out a few at a time.

I almost always make chocolate chip muffins ahead for a moving day. (We have had lots of those in our family.) They can stay in the freezer until the night before and are much appreciated when they are brought out mid-morning or afternoon for a pick-me-up in the midst of all of that hard work.

Can Freezer Chocolate Chip Muffins Be Made Ahead of Time?

Yes! They are the perfect meal prep or make ahead recipe!

Can These Be Frozen?

Yes! Just put them into a gallon Ziploc bag, label and seal well. Get as much air out of the bag as possible and be sure they are totally cool before freezing.

They can be popped out one or two at a time or used by the bag. 

How to Store Freezer Chocolate Chip Muffins

Store in airtight container or Ziploc bag. They are fine at room temperature for a day or two but after that should be in refrigerator or freezer. They will keep in refrigerator for several days and freezer up to 3 months.

How to Make Buttermilk

Add 1 Tbsp of lemon juice or vinegar for each cup of buttermilk you need. Use a measuring cup that holds at least 1 and ½ cups since that is how much buttermilk you need for this recipe. Add 1 ½ Tbsp of lemon juice or vinegar.

Add milk up to the 1 ½ cup line of your measuring cup.

Let it sit for 5 minutes.  You should see bubbles forming and the milk gets thicker.

And there you have it–buttermilk!
