Healthy Kid-Friendly Muffins

Lately, I’ve been very interested in recreating recipes from my childhood. Some of my earliest memories involve cooking/baking up a storm with my mom. These memories will always be with me – no matter what.

As a kiddo, I used to request Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins on the regular. My mom and I would always whip-up something simple, often turning to a muffin mix because it was quick and easy (and I was always so impatiently hungry).

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins Tips

All the exact steps for this post are in the recipe card below. First, I wanted to share some really helpful tips and additional info about them.

The Best Oats for Texture

Oats add such great texture to a muffin. I opted for rolled oats in these muffins but you can also use quick oats, if you’d like. I know many people love quick oats for muffins but rolled oats have worked perfectly fine for this recipe.

Add More Chocolate

This batch of muffins already include 2 full cups of milk chocolate chips. If you’ve got a huge sweet tooth, I recommend topping off the batter with more chocolate chips once scooped into the muffin tin.

How To Store Muffins

The best way to store homemade muffins is in an airtight container at room temperature – so on your countertop or in your pantry. They will stay fresh for up to 5 days, so I suggest eating them quickly!
