Chocolate and Oats Muffins

You can pretty much assume that I am a muffin kinda girl. I love making muffins and eating them too. I love muffins on school days, I love making the mixes in batches. Since I have a very good relationship with muffins, I can guarantee you that I will do my best to make it healthier. I will tweak it so I can justify eating them. But of course, there are some muffins that I have made in the past that I- just-can -NOT tweak.

  Like this Nutella Oat Muffins or Caramel Apple Muffins and oohh the Layered Banana Muffins! I must warn you though, I did a mean Chocolate Zucchini Muffin that our youngest daughter ate! She ate it! That's a big deal because she refuses to eat anything green at the age of 3.



Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups Old fashioned Oats
1/2 cup unsalted butter or olive oil ( I used Olive oil)
2 2/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup Chocolate chips
2/3 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk ( I used 1 %)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease your muffin tins or line with paper muffin cups.
Luckily, I already pre-made my mix. Otherwise, In a mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips. ( flour, sugar, baking powder and salt if using)


In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk, and oil.


Mix in the wet( milk egg and oil) mixture into your dry ingredients. Mix until well incorporated but DO NOT OVERMIX.

Fold in chocolate chips.


 Fill in your muffin tins with the batter.   Just for a beautiful effect, I like to put several pieces of chocolate chip on top of the batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.


 Serve with milk or coffee. A great addition to your back to school lunches too!
