Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If not using muffin papers, grease and flour muffin tin.
2
Mix boiling water, oatmeal and butter....let stand 10 minutes. Add white sugar, brown sugar and eggs....beat well.
3
In separate bowl, whisk together four, baking soda, salt and cocoa.
4
Mix wet ingredients with dry until well blended...do not overmix. Pour into prepared muffin tins...or, I like to use paper muffin cups in the tins. Evenly distribute the chocolate chips over the muffins. I always bake all my muffins for 20 minutes and add minutes as needed as to not overbake.
5
filling the muffin cups 3/4 full, I get 18 regular muffins or 9 when using the jumbo muffin tins. These freeze wonderfully.
