  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour (regular or gluten-free measure-for-measure GF blend
  • ½ cup quick cook oats (regular or gluten-free)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a muffin pan(s) with liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, and salt until combined. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients one cup at a time, stirring between each addition.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Spoon the batter into the muffin pan, filling each cup 2/3 of the way full.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 22 to 25 minutes. The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.



Muffin Tin Liner Trick: Double line each muffin cavity to keep the outer liner clean and unsoiled from baking.
Mini Muffins: use a mini muffin tin. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Should yield aproximately 36 mini muffins. NOTE: I recommend using mini chocolate chips if making mini muffins.
  • Use Quick Oats (regular or gluten-free) NOT rolled or old fashioned oats.
  • Regular or gluten-free measure-for-measure flour may be used.
Nutritional Info based on regular flour and quick oats; not gluten-free.
