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?
