Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

My favorite place to find recipes is from bloggers.... and this recipe came from one I featured on my Friday Favorites a few weeks ago.  This recipe is from Frugal Homemaking -- she says her mom used to make these muffins for her family when they were growing up!



They are delicious muffins, already low in sugar which we like! But, we used applesauce and whole wheat flour, and also used dark chocolate and cranberries for extra antioxidants.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins - Adapted from Frugal Homemaking

1 1/2 C oatmeal (I used quick cook)
2 2/3 C white wheat flour
1/3 C brown sugar, packed
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 C milk
1/2 C applesauce
1/2 C dark chocolate chips (or other add-in)

Combine the dry ingredients together.  



Then, mix together the eggs, applesauce and milk.



Combine the dry and wet ingredients until just moist.



Then, stir in the chocolate chips, or other add-ins. I divided my batter in half and added craisins to half. Yummy!



Fill 24 lightly greased muffin tins 2/3 of the way full.



Bake at 400 for 16-18 minutes, until a toothpick comes out of the muffins clean.



Enjoy!



These froze nicely for us!

  3. What is your take on soaking oatmeal before using? Do you do it? Ever since I heard about soaking them I haven't made anything with oatmeal because I don't know what I am doing! I don't know. Just curious.
