Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
As you know from my recent series on healthier eating, I am trying to prepare better foods for our family.
Admittedly, these muffins have chocolate chips and brown sugar, but the lack of
white sugar and the fact that oats are included make me feel that they’re at
least a step in the right direction! I was out of wheat flour, but next time I
hope to try them with half white/half wheat flour. I also thought of
substituting applesauce for the oil.
Made according to the recipe below,
they had a great texture and taste and were not overly sweet. I know these will
become one of our go-to muffins for breakfast and snacks.
Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 1/4 cup oats
1 1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 1/4 cup flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
oats and milk; let stand for 15 minutes. Stir egg, oil, brown sugar and
chocolate chips into oat mixture; add vanilla. Combine three dry ingredients in
a separate bowl, then add to the liquid mixture; stir until moistened. Use paper
liners or cooking spray in a 12-cup muffin pan. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake
in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
