.Irish Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins makes a wonderful and tasty breakfast. Just the right texture and they rise nice and high.
You never know how it is going to go. I start cooking or baking in the morning right after I get my morning chores done. Now I’m sipping my coffee at my desk completing my last bit of work. My other job. Thank goodness that one doesn’t take too long. Next I start getting a recipe together and take photos as I go. The recipe gets prepared and baked and then more photos get taken. My stomach is rumbling. These photos are the ones that I really want to make beautiful. Ones that I want to be worthy. I design and click and move and click and click a whole lot more. These muffins look so good and I am dying to sit down and relax and have a couple for a brunch or lunch. I can’t eat them yet. I need beautiful photos. It is a bit cloudy out my ‘light’ window so I need to work extra hard getting the right color and shades. Finally I think that is it. Break time.
Now I am finally getting to enjoy these beautiful Irish Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins. Mmmm, just right texture. Chocolate Chips and oatmeal all mixed together. They rise nice and high and I am very happy.
Irish Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
- Combine the oatmeal and the milk in a bowl and set aside for about 1/2 hour. The photo below shows the oatmeal with the milk covering it. I just wanted to show you this because in the next photo after this you will see how much the Irish Oatmeal puffs up.
- Mix the egg replacer and set aside.
- Lightly oil muffin tins for 12 muffins.
- In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder.
- In a separate bowl mix together the egg replacer mixture, oil and the puffed up oatmeal.
- Stir the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix until just combined.
- Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
- Divide the mixture evenly between the tins.
- Bake at 425• for 20 to 25 minutes.
- Let cool 10 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
After they have cooled you may freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article Preparing food for the Freezer.
They defrost quickly so it really doesn't take any planning. The microwave will also zap them in 20 seconds.
