Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

As many of you probably know by now…I am more than just a little obsessed with muffins!

But, in my defence, what’s not to love about a muffin? They’re perfect with a cup of steaming coffee while reading the Saturday paper and also convenient as a grab and go breakfast on a busy workday morning.

I also like muffins in the afternoons with a hot cup of tea or after supper as a bit of a dessert. Let’s face it, muffins are the ultimate convenience food!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have actually had this recipe for quite a long time, but just made them for the first time today. For some reason, I seem to often stick to my tried and true favourites when it comes to muffin baking, so I had yet to try these.

It was actually Music Man who suggested I make them. Apparently, he had watched a television advertisement for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins and thought they would be tasty…then he “sort of” implied this would be a great recipe for the blog. He thought he had tricked me, but, I knew he just wanted some muffins for himself….lol.

I made these this morning, they turned out great and the muffin itself was delicious!  I will definitely be making them again!

Just an aside, you may be wondering why I don’t usually use muffin tin liners. I suppose you could if you like, I don’t because I find it a bit messy to remove the paper from the muffin and I prefer the smooth look of no papers.  But I’m a little quirky that way…lol…you do whatever you like!

  1. You know, I almost believe you have been listening to our conversations… your name isn’t Alexa or Google is it.. We were discussing what kind of muffins to make and I , being the more adventurous of the two, like something different, like applesauce or oatmeal muffins, while my hubby and son..( they are the ones who eat them the most) prefer the time honoured “blueberry muffin or chocolate chip as their go-to muffins This recipe is a combo of both. Do you suppose I could substitute blueberries for choc. chip…. ?? Will give it a try a let you know.

    Thanks for coming to my rescue!

    • Awwhhh…thanks, Pat and I see no reason why you couldn’t substitute blueberries for chocolate chips! If you make the recipe with blueberries (which sounds delicious!), let me know how they turn out!
