Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are almost too good to have for breakfast! They are perfect for those mornings when you are feeling like you deserve a treat, but want something a little more nourishing than a doughnut.

What You Need:
  • 1 1/4 cups whole oats oats
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (I use rice milk but dairy works fine too)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
What You Do: 
  • Combine oats and milk and allow to stand for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Oil your muffin tin.
  • Stir egg, oil, brown sugar, and chocolate chips into the oat and milk mixture.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add oat mixture to flour mixture, stirring until just moist.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until ready. Enjoy!!

  1. we have oatmeal cookies on the list of things to make- I'll suggest these because I would love them.

  2. I should try these, as nothing is sounding good to me these days;)

  3. These look great! I've been looking for a good oat muffin recipe. Did you use quick oats or slow oats?

  4. I used slow oats. Make sure you soak them though... if you don't, there will be oat-crunches in your muffins!

  5. My very, very picky eater loves these! Thanks for the recipe!
