Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip muffins are great for any time of day. They make a terrific breakfast, can be tucked in a lunch box, or handed out as after school treats. This batch was hardly out of the oven before they started disappearing. There's not a designated day set aside on the calendar to honor chocolate chip muffins, so I suppose it's okay to honor them any and every day. Just between us, we'll call today Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffin Day. Celebrate with me today and maybe tomorrow too.
