I will always have a special place in my heart for a good muffin. A recipe that creates a dozen single serving breakfast carbs at the ready? Oh, yeah. I’m down. The perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch and guaranteed to be a welcomed site by nearly everyone.
And those that don’t welcome them? No worries, that means more for me! These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins have been one of my most favorite muffins for years now and I don’t see them losing their superstar status anytime soon.
I was first introduced to these homemade Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins when my husband and I stated dating during my junior year of college. Whenever his parents visited, his mom left all kinds of baked goods at his apartment. And these muffins were always the first to go.
The same thing happens now, nearly 15 years later. Only now I’m making two dozen muffins at a time and fighting over the last one with my husband and three small children.
These four ingredient Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins are so incredibly easy that they take just five minutes to prepare. My Homemade Oatmeal Muffin Mix, milk, egg and chocolate chips are stirred together and then magically transform into baked good deliciousness.
I love when they emerge from the oven studded with melty chocolate chips. The original recipe from my mother-in-law included only a half cup of chocolate chips, but I doubled it in my recipe to a full cup. Believe me, I’ve yet to hear anyone complain.
The same shortcut Homemade Oatmeal Muffin Mix used for these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins is also used for my autumn favorite Pumpkin Butterscotch Oatmeal Muffins as well as my fruit bejeweled Cherry Almond Oatmeal Muffins. You could make an entire muffin bar of sorts for breakfast using this mix alone. Now that would be my kind of breakfast!
How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
 In a medium sized bowl, add Homemade Oatmeal Muffin Mix, milk, egg and chocolate chips.
 With a spoon or spatula, stir together until just combined and no dry ingredients remain.
 Line muffin tin with paper liners.
TIP: The parchment muffin baking cups from Paper Chef are my favorite as I’ve never had a muffin or cupcake stick using them!
 Using a large cookie scoop, fill each muffin cup with batter. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in muffin center removes cleanly.
TIP: Using a cookie scoop insures muffins that are all of a uniform size.
