Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Muffins

Lucy and I saw some chocolate chip muffins at Costco that looked extremely tempting.  Until I checked the ingredients that is... too much junk.  After craving those muffins for a couple of weeks, I finally did a search and found this recipe and Julia helped me whip these up.  They were exactly what we were hoping for!  (I did change it some, less sugar and chocolate chips.  I'm posting the recipe as I made it:)

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Beat together butter, sugar, baking powder, salt, and vanilla until fluffy.  Beat in eggs, then stir in milk.  Mix in the flour and then the chocolate chips.  Spoon into 12 muffin cups.  Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Tilt muffins in pan to cool.  (A new trick I learned from this recipe!)

These are sooo good while still warm and gooey.  And the next day, and... well they didn't last any longer than that.
