Deceitfully Healthful Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

My mom served these yummy muffins to our family growing up.  They are great day-starters because they pack a big punch of oatmeal with a touch of sweet with mini-chocolate chips.

Deceitfully Healthful Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

1-1/2 cups oatmeal
2-2/3 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
6 oz. mini-chocolate chips (half of a bag)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease 24 muffin cups.  Combine the dry ingredients--oatmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and create a well in the middle of the mixture.  In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients--eggs, milk and oil.  Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir just until moistened.  Add the mini chips until evenly combined.  Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 full.  Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until tops are light golden.  Remove from oven, and allow to cool for 5 minutes before handling.

These sound delicious! I make something similar and am happy that they are at least a bit healthier than your normal muffin!

Are these rolled oats or quick oats that you're using? Also, do you think this is one of those recipes where applesauce could be used instead of oil? I'm all about trying to healtify myself (that's not even a word, I know) after Easter and this looks like a great recipe to try! Thanks!

I used quick oats and they are delicious! I also used Egg Beaters egg whites. I'll have to try applesauce next time!

I made these today--yum! I substituted half of the white flour with whole wheat (I used white whole wheat). They still got nice and fluffy.

I also realized I was out of baking powder--yikes!! I did some Googling, and the Joy of Cooking website suggested (for every 1 tsp of baking powder) to use 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp cream of tartar, and 1/4 tsp corn starch. Thankfully I had all of those. (We use cream of tartar in our homemade play dough!) I would never know they didn't have baking powder in them. So just in case anyone else finds themselves baking powder-less...that's a substitute that actually works!

Wondering if rolled oats will work! Looks yummy!

content2be said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Jody! I have substituted rolled oats in this recipe with no problem. Perhaps a tad chewier, but no other noticeable difference. Hope that helps!

Thanks, Melissa! I hope you like them as much as we do.

I realize I'm late to the party but I made these last night and thought they were terrible. They taste like cardboard with chocolate chips in them. I followed the recipe exactly and am left wondering if something was left out? Vanilla? Something? I'm pretty bummed that I now have 24 muffins that are probably going to go in the garbage unless my 5 year old will eat them, but so far its not looking likely. I really wanted these to work too!

Abby said... Best Blogger Tips

I agree with Gina. I just made these, and I added a teaspoon of vanilla after reading her comment. Even with that addition, and with a few extra chocolate chips, the muffins are pretty flavorless. I think next time I'll add a mashed banana.

content2be said... Best Blogger Tips

Gina and Abby, I'm sorry these weren't to your liking. They are not especially sweet, which is why I like to serve them for breakfast to my kiddos. With the addition of the chips, my girls gobble them up. I imagine a banana would add a touch of natural sweetness!

Until one faithful day as I was browsing on the internet I saw a testimony on how Dr. Edualekhide has helped people in curing Herpes and other diseases, quickly I copied his WhatsApp number so i contacted him for solution for my Herpes disease, So Dr. Edualekhide told me that his going to prepare his herbal medicine for my health which he sent to me, luckily after 2week my Herpes was cured. Dr. Edualekhide is well recognized as one of the best herbalist doctors in Africa, you don't have to be sad anymore or share your tears anymore on this disease when the cure is available. The medicine has NO SIDE EFFECT, There's no special diet when taking the medicine. He also cures ALS, HIV AIDS, CANCER, HPV, DIABETES and lots more.
