This recipe was the result of wanting a healthy oatmeal muffin, yet craving chocolate! 😀  The muffin itself doesn’t taste all that sweet, but then you add the chocolate chips and YUM! Great combination! This is definitely a good muffin for breakfasts, or snacks.

Double Chocolate Oatmeal Muffins

(Makes 12 muffins)

1 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup flour*
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar (brown or white)
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 egg
3/4 cup buttermilk**
1/4 cup margarine/butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients together. Combine egg and buttermilk, blend in margarine. Add to dry ingredients, stirring only until mixed. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

* I used all wheat flour and it tasted great, although the muffin wasn’t as risen/fluffy as if you used some white flour. So it’s up to your preference! Wheat, white, or do a mixture of each. 🙂

** I simply added 1 Tbsp vinegar in regular milk, for a total of 3/4 cup.
