Mmm… Muffins (Oatmeal Chocolate Chip)

Last Tuesday I was hungry between classes and I ended up buying a muffin. The muffin was good and I was no longer hungry. Then it happened again later in the week. Again, the muffin was good but I felt bad about paying $1.25 for something I could easily make at home. So, Friday I bought a muffin pan, and on Sunday I made them. Here’s the recipe:

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins (makes 12)
Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Combine oats and milk and leave them alone for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400F (205C).
  3. Add egg, oil, brown sugar, chocolate chips and walnuts into the oats and milk.
  4. In a seperate bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add oat mixture to the flour mixture and mix.
  6. Put the mixture into a greased mufifn tin (you don’t have to grease the tin if you are using baking cups), it won’t rise too much so you can fill it up.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until it looks good.
