Pistachio and Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are so simple and easy to make. They’re perfectly moist and light and you can make them as rich as you want by adding more chocolate chips or even sprinkling some crushed pistachios. Chef's tip: Do not overmix the batter, just enough to combine everything. Overmixed batter makes for tough muffins!
