Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

 Today is the last Monday of the month and that means it is Secret Recipe Club day.  I have met so many great bloggers through this program and have enjoyed my past year of “stalking” new blogs.  I was excited to receive Casey’s blog My Beautiful Disasters for my last SRC post.  This girl is truly amazing!!!  I wish that I had been as dedicated to working out in high school.  I think it is so cool that she runs 5K’s with her dad too.  And her blog has so many fun recipes on it…did I mention she is still in high school?  I am way impressed that she keeps up with her homework all while posting all this delicious food.

Casey had so many yummy things that I wanted to try on her blog.  Look at these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup BarsS’mores Stuffed Brownies…or Chocolate Caramel Bars.  Yes, I have a thing for bar treats:-)  But then I found these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins and I knew my kids would love these for breakfast.  Who wouldn’t want to eat cookies for breakfast???

Of course I had to change the recipe, but only slightly.  I did double it because my kids really like their muffins for breakfast, and I figured this would last a few days at least.  Then I took out the topping because I really like my muffins with a glaze on them.  Give me frosting or glaze on baked goods any day of the week.

    Jocelyn I was so excited to get your blog this month! I loved looking through all you pictures! The Chipotle Chicken Pasta was so incredible, it will definitely be a “do over” in our home!
    Your Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins look so yummy, I can’t wait to try them!

    • Jocelyn says

      Thank you so much!!! That pasta is one of my all time favorites:-) I’m glad to hear you guys would make it again too!!!

    • Jocelyn says

      Her blog is so fun…and she has quite a head start on me too! I sure wish I would have had her determination and drive back then:-)

    • Jocelyn says

      We go through a lot of muffins around here, so I am always looking for fun new varieties for the kids! They love muffins way more than cold cereal.

    Aw thank you so, so much for the kind post!! I’m so happy you gave this recipe a try! That post was way back when I first started blogging and my photos were a bit…”rough” to say the least. I love the idea of adding a glaze, brilliant!

    LOVE your muffins…LOVE your new blog design! Did you say this will be your last SRC post? As in you won’t be part of this club anymore? Maybe I have misunderstood…I sure hope so!

    • Jocelyn says

      Muffins that taste like cookies are really the best kind of breakfast…I’m good with muffins that taste like cupcakes too:-)

    • Jocelyn says

      YAY!!! This design makes me smile every single time I work on my blog:-) You just made my night by saying it makes you smile too!!! Cookies as muffins make me smile even more too!!!

    • Jocelyn says

      It all depends on the muffin. If it’s pumpkin, I like crumb, if it’s banana, I like coconut, and if it has lot of extra sugar, I like glaze. All in all it just depends on my mood that day:-) And I like the way you think…oatmeal always equals health food:-)

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      They will either be thrilled or be in a sugar coma :-) LOL if you love chocolate and treats you have found the place to be. I am so happy to have you here!!!
