Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

It’s been awhile since I posted a new recipe. Life has been crazy and I haven’t done much cooking or baking, but things are slowing down and I’m ready to get back to trying new recipes!

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

Combine oats and milk and allow to stand for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Grease each cup of one 12-cup muffin tin.

Stir egg, oil, brown sugar and chocolate chips into the oat and milk mixture.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add oat mixture to flour mixture, stirring until just moist. Fill each cup of one 12-cup muffin tin 2/3 full. Sprinkle tops with the remaining brown sugar and pecans.

Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes.

They were really good. I sprinkled them with a little sugar/cinnamon mix on top before baking. Next time I’m going to add either walnuts or raisins.
