  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

For the Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat and Prep:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Grease a baking dish or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. This forms the foundation of your quick and easy dough.
  3. Create the Dough:
    • Pour in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract into the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, avoiding overmixing for the perfect texture.
  4. Add Chocolate Chips:
    • Gently fold in the chocolate chips, distributing them evenly throughout the dough.
  5. Shape the Buns:
    • Scoop portions of the dough and form them into round bun shapes. Arrange them in the prepared baking dish, leaving a bit of space between each.
  6. Bake to Perfection:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the buns are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Prepare the Glaze:
    • While the buns are baking, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract to create a smooth glaze.
  8. Glaze the Buns:
    • Once the buns are out of the oven and still warm, generously drizzle the glaze over the top. Allow it to set for a few minutes.
  9. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Indulge in the warm, soft goodness of these chocolate chip buns, savoring each bite.

Cook Notes:

  • Ensure not to overmix the dough to maintain a light and fluffy texture.
  • Feel free to customize the recipe with your favorite add-ins, such as nuts or dried fruit.


  1. Cinnamon Twist: Mix a teaspoon of ground cinnamon into the dough for a delightful cinnamon-chocolate chip combination.
  2. Nutty Delight: Add a half cup of chopped nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, for a nutty crunch in every bite.
  3. Fruity Infusion: Incorporate dried fruit like raisins or cranberries to add a burst of sweetness.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Enjoy these chocolate chip buns as a delightful breakfast treat or a quick afternoon snack with a cup of your favorite coffee or tea.

Additional Tips for Perfection:

  1. Freshness Lock: Store any leftover buns in an airtight container to preserve their softness.
  2. Warm-Up Perfection: If reheating, warm the buns in the oven for a few minutes to regain their fresh-from-the-oven appeal.
  3. Glaze Adjustment: Customize the glaze to your liking by adjusting the sugar or adding a hint of citrus with a touch of lemon or orange zest.

Keto Versions:

  1. Almond Flour Swap: Substitute almond flour for all-purpose flour to create a keto-friendly version of the buns.
  2. Low-Carb Sweetener: Replace granulated sugar with a low-carb sweetener of your choice, adjusting the quantity to taste.
  3. Dark Chocolate Delight: Opt for sugar-free dark chocolate chips to reduce the overall carb content.
