Chocolate Chip Graham Cracker Muffins, so good you'll think you're eating a cookie for breakfast!

Muffins make a great go-to breakfast in our house. They’re portable. No silverware required. No plate or bowl really, just a napkin if you want to be uncivilized (or maybe lazy and not have to wash any dishes.) We love baking up different varieties and then freezing them. Makes it so easy for everyone to get what they want.

I did a Muffin Round Up from around the web and This  Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Muffin  recipe from Michelle’s Tasty Creations has been calling to me ever since.

Maybe it’s because the graham cracker is in the muffin but also part of the streusel topping. Like a graham cracker crust but on top. And I love Graham cracker crusts!

Maybe because I just look for any excuse to get more chocolate into my breakfast. And hey, there are studies out there that say chocolate can be healthy for you, you I know I’m grasping at straws to justify my craving for these muffins.

You have to trust me on this and make up a batch of these muffins. I promise, it won’t be your last one.

You’ll be eating these for breakfast and then, because it tastes like a cookie, you’ll have another as an afternoon snack. And because Cookies and milk just make a good bedtime snack, you’ll have another one then.

Unless you can control yourself. Good luck with that!

  5. Oh Joan, these look phenomenal!

  6. yessssss-my kind of muffin!!!!

  7. I’ve been thinking about these ever since I saw the photos…

  8. This is such an amazing idea, Joan. I’d never have thought to put graham crackers into a muffin. Now I want to put it into everything: quick breads, cakes, cupcakes…the sky’s the limit!

  9. I LOVE graham cracker crust too, so pinning now!

  10. Joan,
    I’m so glad you liked these muffins! Thanks so much for the shout out :)

    Have a great day.

  11. Could this be made into a cake,as in a 8×8 or 9×13 pan??

    • You certainly could. I’d use a 9×13 pan and increase the baking time by 5-8 minutes, just check it with a toothpick to make sure the center is fully cooked, Enjoy!

  12. Sweet Tooth Sally says:

    Do I use regular or mini muffin tins?

  13. Would these work as mini muffins? How would you recommend adjusting the baking time? They look wonderful!

  14. I made these muffins the other day and wanted to tell you how wonderful they were. My husband isn’t too much of a muffin fan but he devoured these. Also, as a twist, could I try Nilla wafers in place of the Graham Crackers? Thanks!

  15. Can you use almond milk instead of whole milk?

  16. Just made these for work and oh man are they delicious! Absolutely loved them! Going to pin for sure! Thanks for the great recipe!


  17. These look amazing!! Going to feature them on my blog.

  18. these muffins look sooo good, I was wondering do you think using graham cracker crumbs from a box would be ok to use instead of regular graham crackers? or would they be too fine?- thanks!

  19. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I loved it and my family loved it too! I agree, they’re perfect for breakfast and for an afternoon snack. Mine yielded 12 muffins, which probably won’t last for 24 hours haha will make up a new batch soon.

  20. hi your muffins look great but I was wondering the grahams have to be crushes to a poweder of chunks??? thanks

  21. looks delish! thanks for sharing this recipe.. i can’t wait to bake it for my son and my hubby..

  22. These look amazing! I’m thinking of making them for breakfast tomorrow morning but I was wondering do I have to use whole milk or will 2% be ok? Thanks in advance!

  23. Hello! Can’t wait to try! Would this work in a loaf pan rather than as muffins?! Any variations if so? Thank you!
