The night my dad got out of the hospital after his surgery, he and my mom stayed at our house. I woke up early the next morning and made breakfast for everyone. It had been a rough couple days and I wanted to do some pampering for my family.
I made these muffins, plain oatmeal for my dad, scrambled eggs with cheese, and sausage. It was a yummy way to start the day.
I got this recipe from http://www.howsweeteats.com/ .
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Muffins
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 cup chocolate chips (I used mini's)
Preheat oven to 350 and line muffin tins. Makes 12 muffins.
Add oats to a bowl and add 1/2 cup of milk. Let soak for 5-10 minutes, while you prepare the first few steps of the muffins.
In a large bowl, combine egg and brown sugar. Whisk until smooth. Add in vanilla and butter. Whisk well, smoothing batter as much as possible. There will still be some small butter chunks.
Add flour, oat misture, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix well.
Add remaining 1/2 cup milk and combine until smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Fill muffin liners with about 1/4 cup of batter. Sprinkle the tops with sugar.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until baked through.
Serve with butter.
Share with family and friends.
These really did taste like a Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie only in muffin form. Makes them solid breakfast material!
