Today I would like to introduce you to one of my family’s all-time favorite recipes – Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins. We eat these muffins for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time. Skip to the bottom of this blog for the link to the recipe. Read the middle section if you would like my story of this recipe.
When my children were very little, I was looking for a chocolate chip muffin recipe that was lower in sugar and had some whole grains. I wanted something to satisfy our sweet tooth, but also leave us feeling full. I started looking through a cookbook gifted to me by my husband’s grandparents. His grandparents had run a bed and breakfast for years and wrote a cookbook with their favorite recipes. The cookbook had an oatmeal muffin recipe that, with a couple of small changes, would be just right for my family. I keep the ingredients for these muffins on hand, so we can make them anytime we want them. My older two children know how to make them now and my mother-in-law makes them with a special ingredient – raspberries from her raspberry patch.
Our blogs this month will focus on some of our favorite foods to snack on. Try one of my favorite snacks, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins, today!
