Best yet Oat & Choc chip Muffins

This was a great Sunday morning. I made my best muffins I’ve made to date, but as a result I don’t have enough left to last the week. I’ve been trying to make a muffin that rises with a crispy top and I was pleased how this fast-to-throw-together recipe turned out.

This morning I watched a video on the chemistry of baking and did some research on muffin making which I think helped. I took a very basic recipe and added my own flair to make these very flavorful.

I absolutely love my silicone muffin liners and will never go back, but they produce a fairly small muffin. This recipe would be great in a giant muffin tin.

Start by preheating your over to 400 degrees. Ensure it is fully pre-heated before inserting your batter.

In a bowl whisk together:

  • 1/2 cup oil (I did half veg, half EVOO)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1 tsp orange extract
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • lots of chocolate chips

In another bowl whisk together:

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup ground oats (I just put my large flake oats in a blender – you could use reg oats without grinding I’m sure)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 dashes salt
  • 2-3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg

Add the wet to the dry (these are kinda runny) and mix only until big chunks are combines (10-15 stirs). Divide into muffin liners and bake at 400 for 15 mins (longer if needed).

Yum, yum, yum!
