Sour Cream Muffins

Our water was going to be off for a while today and we didn't have our regular breakfast items.  I didn't want to dirty a ton of dishes cooking and eating.  I was trying to come up with a solution, but I was also feeling like I wanted something different.  I was going to make biscuits and started flipping through a cookbook, looking for biscuit recipes.  Then I saw these muffins.  Even though we are getting low on some staples, I happen to have everything to make them and I don't make a lot of muffins so it fit all my criteria.  I had every thing I needed, and it was something new.  I added mini chocolate chips but the recipe talks about mint chips being delicious, I might try that next time.  Not that we had any complaints at all the way we ate them.  And boy did they go fast.  I was a little worried when I tasted the batter that the sour cream would be too much for my kids, but it's wasn't so.  My kids had each eaten 3 in no time (and I might have eaten a few too).  I thought I'd share since they were super easy and super good.  You know something is easy when you don't even have to dirty the bowl for your mixer!
