YUM

This morning K, Grandma and I made Deceitfully Healthful Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins which I found on a great blog called "Frugal Homemaking". They were easy to make and taste so good! I am going to freeze half of them for quick breakfasts/snacks later on. I did make a few simple changes to make them even healthier and think the results are rather tasty. :)

1.5 cups oatmeal (I used quick oats.)
2 and 2/3 cups flour (I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and the rest was all-purpose flour.)
2/3 cup sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten (I used Egg Beaters egg whites.)
1.5 cups milk
.5 cup vegetable oil (I used canola.)
6 oz. mini-chocolate chips (half of a bag)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 24 muffin cups. Combine the dry ingredients--oatmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and create a well in the middle of the mixture. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients--eggs, milk and oil. Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir just until moistened. Add the mini chips until evenly combined. Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until tops are light golden. Remove from oven, and allow to cool for 5 minutes before handling.
