Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

You will love these muffins!

These are the best.

They have just the right texture and are

not too sweet. Note that the oats soak

for 1 hour before continuing.

Plan ahead to bake these yummies. 

They are perfect with morning coffee

 or afternoon tea. 

Even better spread with a bit of soft butter. 

Soak the oats, milk and vinegar in a large

 bowl for an hour. Take the egg out of 

the refrigerator too

 so that it’s at room temperature. 

Stir in the egg and brown sugar. 

Stir in the melted butter.

Dump the dry ingredients into a sifter

and sift into the bowl.

Add the chocolate chips. 

Gently stir everything together just

until moistened. Do not overmix. 

Preheat oven to 375º

Grease a 12-C muffin tin. I use the butter 

wrapper and a smear of butter. 

Spoon the batter into the cups evenly,

about 1/3 C each. 

Bake in preheated 375º for about 15 minutes

 or until the tops are lightly browned and 

spring back when gently touched.

 Cool in tin about 5 minutes. Run a knife

around the edges and pop the muffins out. 

Pile some in a napkin-lined basket.

         Enjoy while still warm.
