Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Ingredients:

1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/3 cup butter
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Heat oven to 400F degrees. Grease bottoms of 12 medium muffin cups (2-3/4 inches in diameter) or use muffin/cupcake liners.

Beat egg; add in milk, brown sugar and butter.
Mix in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened. Batter should be lumpy.
Take a large spoon and mix the chocolate chips in.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from pan.

I was quite surprised to-day to receive so many requests in addition to Linda-Jo's for this recipe. I advise tripling the recipe, they go very quickly, especially when hot out of the oven and the chocolate chips are melting. Also, please remember to check to make sure all ingredients you are using are what you would consider "safe" for your PA child. Best wishes!

I'm re-raising this one because I just tried a variation on it. Instead of chocolate chips, I used Sixlets that I had been sent from the U.S. Having just taste tested one (yeah, right [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] ), they are really good. Also, the candy coating of the Sixlets melts and adds a lot of colour to the muffins which I think kids would enjoy.

Wow Cindy, these sound delish! Since Kevin hates chocolate, I'll try these with raisins.

darthcleo, I know that there has been some controversy re Hershey's Sixlets. However, any of my American friends that have sent candy to me have sent Sixlets. I trust their judgement and I guess I know their comfort zones re PA fairly well, so I thought it would be okay to use the Sixlets. I would also have to add that we have eaten quite a few boxes now with no adverse side effects.
However, again, this is a comfort zone thing.
If you are comfortable eating Sixlets, then they definitely do work well in these muffins (although I prefer the standard chocolate chips - and see there, also, my chocolate chips are Hershey's semi-sweet, Canadian though). I also think this recipe could work with Smarties.
Going Nuts - I think they would be great with raisins. I know that the Carrot Muffin recipe I posted here somewhere (or it might be Zucchini Carrot) goes great with raisins in it.
They are a good muffin. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] (as if I wrote the recipe [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] )

Cindy,
I finally got around to making these yesterday - they were a huge hit. Kevin ate 4 of them within about an hour! I used raisins, and added 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon - delish!

darthcleo - Canadian here also. I'd never heard of them until an American e-buddy sent me some last year in exchange for some Cdn. Smarties. I think they are only available in the U.S., and from what I hear, they are hard to find even there. Hersheys makes them and they are candy-covered chocolate - sweeter than Smarties and very delicious. I seem to recall there was a thread on the Main Discussion Board about a Sixlets exchange. You might want to do a search for the thread there - some of the American members offered to send us some I think?

Just goes to show how long it's been since I made these. I can't believe they were found on Page 7! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img]

As soon as I saw this recipe I printed it out and went down to bake some! My ds loves chocolate chip muffins so I figured if I can make them , and slip some oats in, why not! They are very good,and he loved them. So did dh.

Ours are in the oven right now! I can't believe I've waited so long to make them. I have heard about them for years. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
I had a hard time mixing the butter into the liquid. (I normally would have mixed the egg and the butter together first.) I resorted to using an electric whisk. I will have to see how they turn out.
Matthew (age 4) had a blast helping.

Miriam, I had the same trouble with the butter. I tried it in the elec. mixer, but their was too much liquid. So I finally added the flour. How'd yours turn out?
So Cindy, fill us in on the secret of how you mix in the butter.

Enjoy!

tamisly, wonderful to see you posting! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I miss you! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I mix the butter and the brown sugar together first and then add the liquid and then the flour.
I actually can't remember the last time I made these [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
Please note: obviously Sixlets would NOT be an okay substitute for chocolate chips now that they have a "may contain" warning.

I meant to say the butter and sugar! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img]
They came out [b]really[/b] good. I will definitely be making them a lot.
One thing that I think is really funny is that the consistency is very similar to some "fat free" muffins I used to buy from a cafe, back in the early 90's. Since these muffins are clearly [b]not[/b] fat free, I am wondering if I was duped about those other muffins! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
Also, I thought it was funny when I read that Amy used raisins because her ds doesn't like chocolate. Guess what my dd said when she ate one? "They're good, but I think I would like them better if they had raisins instead of chocolate chips." [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] sometimes I could swear she is [b]not[/b] my daughter! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
Thanks for the great recipe, Cindy. I know we will be making them a lot. Matthew takes after me and [b]loves[/b] chocolate. It must be all that chocolate I craved (and ate!) when I was pregnant with him. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]

California Mom, I counted, you had FOUR [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] 's!
This recipe has been here for ages, what took you so long?
And, as a chocolate lover, you may also want to look for the Chocolate Zucchini Loaf. I'm fairly sure that I posted it, but I posted it with permission of Cayley's Mom, whose recipe it was.

If anyone has tried these muffins using an egg substitute, please let me know how it went! I am finding some delicious sounding recipes on this post but we can't use eggs!! So if you happen to post one & know of a good way to sub the eggs that works for the recipe, please list it too....thanks from this mom to a PA and EA child [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I use 1 1/2 tablespoon of oil, teaspoon of baking powder, and 1 1/2 tablespoon of water for each egg. The recipe actually comes out quite moist.

DD (10) made these--substituted canola oil for butter; water for milk (about 7/8 cup); 1.5 T oil, 1 t baking powder and 1.5 T water for egg; omitted salt. We used Trader Joe's chocolate chips. Double recipe made 18 delicious muffins.
