Saturday Morning Warm Berry & Chocolate Chip Muffins

This morning I couldn't quite decide if I should make muffins or crepes, I just wanted to avoid having to go to the grocery store. I decided on muffins, we were in Japan last week snowboarding in Furano Hokkaido and we had savoury muffins at the end of most days with a beer and it reminded me I had not made muffins in ages.
I didn't have the ingredients for savoury muffins so I made berry and chocolate chips you could use any berries in them I used a combination of blueberries and blackberries because thats all I had in the fridge. The muffins are pictured on the chopcookdine Chinese New Year tea towel follow the link to get your own.
