Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Muffins

I had almost a full container of buttermilk leftover from Thanksgiving that was going to go bad if I didn't use it.
These muffins were delicious, the flavors were so different and interesting than any regular chocolate  chip muffins I've ever had. 
Definitely try these! 

1.5C flour
3/4C sugar
2tsp baking powder
1/4tsp baking soda
1/4tsp salt
1/4tsp cinnamon
Finely crated zest of 1 orange
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4C buttermilk
2/3C vegetable oil
1tsp vanilla
3/4C semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Lightly grease muffin tin. 
  3. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and orange zest in a large mixing bowl and whisk to blend. 
  4. Stir in chocolate chips. 
  5. Combine the egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla in a large measuring cup or a bowl and whisk until well blend. 
  6. Using a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon, stir and fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until all of the dry ingredients are moistened and the batter is well blended and smooth. 
  7. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full and bake for about 20 minutes until muffins are puffed, golden, and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
  8. Carefully remove each muffin out of tin and allow to cool on rack. 
  9. Enjoy!
