Muffins play an important part in the way we eat around my house. We eat them for a quick breakfast, for snacks, at lunch time, and sometimes for dessert. These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins are perfect for any of those times.
I love making muffins because they’re so easy. It usually only requires a single bowl, a few ingredients, and some stirring. Muffins bake quickly too, so I can start a batch of muffins and have them on the cooling rack in about 30 minutes.
Most kids can’t resist a muffin, which makes them perfect vehicles for hidden nutrition. You can put just about anything inside a muffin and my children will still gobble them down. My kids are not easy to persuade when it comes to eating vegetables, but I’ve had no trouble getting them to eat muffins with sweet potatoes, zucchini, carrot puree, or pumpkin inside.
