Nothing beats a classic like these oatmeal chocolate chip muffins, am I right? They are an old favourite of mine that go perfectly with a cup of tea to start an early morning or an afternoon break.
Leaning more on the healthier side, they only have 1/4 cup of sugar and the rest is filled with wholesome goodness, like milk and oats. You can easily replace the chocolate chips for nuts or leave them plain, but hey, a little dark chocolate isn’t so bad!
Making muffins is a favourite pastime of mine. They require little effort, are an easy clean up and are ready in 30 minutes or less! Muffins are perfect to bring to cottage weekend getaways or to share with friends when they are in need. They freeze well, so you can always have a few tucked away when you crave a snack on the road.
Breakfast is my favourite meal and I love all the baked goods that come with it; croissants, jams, scones, muffins, quiches, crepes… okay I’m making myself hungry. The point is, muffins are simple and easy to make for breakfast. They are fun to play with all kinds of flavours and to experiment. But like these ones, sometimes all you need is a classic – oatmeal chocolate chip muffins with no fancy tricks!

I used this recipe recently and loved it. I was looking for something to grab and go in the mornings and this seemed like a perfect option from the usual suspects. It’s healthier with half reg white flour and half whole wheat flour. I also did half with chocolate chips and have with apples and cinnamon (had some apples I needed to use… figured I’d try and see how it works) both turned out great! Def a recipe to keep! Quick, easy and fool proof for baking rookies like me!
I’m so happy to hear, thanks for sharing Alexandra. I’ll have to try adding apples the next time I bake them too. Great idea!
