Chocolate Chip Cookie Oatmeal Muffin Tips:

Chocolate chip cookie oatmeal muffin is a tasty quick bread recipe that is easy to make and bake. Here are handy tips to keep your muffin tasting delicious every time you take a bite. 

  • Chocolate: Chocolate chips are a classic addition to any cookie preparation, so imparting the flavor combination into this oatmeal muffin recipe was a no brainer. Toss the chocolate chips into the muffin batter and coat the muffin crumb with gooey deliciousness.
  • Oats: Rolled oats and quick oats are the preferred type of oats for preparing this recipe. Rolled oats soak up more liquid, while the quick oats tend to absorb the liquid much faster.
  • Dried fruit: Raisins are complimentary flavors that could be added to this muffin batter. Also consider dried apples, apricots, bananas, cherries, currents, dates, and figs.
  • Nuts: Consider adding nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, peanuts, , pistachios and walnuts.
  • Sweetness: Adjust the sweetness to suit your taste preference. There is a subtle balance between the sweetness of the oatmeal batter and the chocolate chips.
  • Consistency: The muffin batter is denser compared to other recipes, but there is no cause for concern about dry muffins. It’s best to steer clear of using a muffin liner because oatmeal muffins tend to stick to the paper. For best results, bake the muffin in a nonstick pan without a liner. The muffins will brown around the outside edge resulting in a moist center.
  • High heat: Begin baking with a high temperature setting to force the muffins to rise quickly. Then, reduce the temperature to result in tall muffins that have a moist center crumb.
  • Make ahead: Easily meal prep oatmeal muffins ahead of time for a tasty breakfast or delicious midday snack. Enjoy at room temp, or quickly warm the muffin in the microwave, or toaster oven.
  • Storage: Oatmeal muffins stay fresh in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or up to 3 months when stored in the freezer. Thaw frozen muffins overnight in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature before serving.

Just made the muffins. Okay, but something seems off, and the chocolate chips all sunk to the bottom. Would baking powder have been better than soda?

Hello Rebekah, That sounds weird to me like something may be off. This muffin batter should be dense, which should keep the chocolate chips in place. Did you allow the oats to soak in the milk for a few minutes? The oats will soak up the liquid and the result is a denser batter. Because the liquid is in the oats, the muffins do not dry out when baked. Also, did you start baking with high heat and then turn the oven down the second half of baking? The high heat sets the outside edges and then the low heat evenly bakes the inside crumb. Hope this helps to trouble shoot. Warmly, Joshua
