Oatmeal Crumble Muffins | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

There are some days you just NEED a muffin. The problem is that it’s hard to find a muffin that tastes like a muffin. Do you have any idea what I’m talking about? Probably not. Let me explain. Every time I order a muffin from some local restaurant it tastes like chemicals, and forget about buying one at my local market; that’s just asking for severe disappointment. In short, I have yet to find a bakery or market that has a muffin that meets my strict standards. I’ll continue my search of course, but until then, I’m stuck baking my own.

This muffin recipe is basic. By which I mean that there are no raisins, blueberries, apples, or nuts and seeds to give the muffins added va-va-voom, but you can certainly add them if you have a hankering. Who am I to judge? Maybe you not only NEED a muffin, but you just happen to NEED a Chocolate Chip Muffin. I say go for it. Throw caution to the wind and toss in a 1/2-cup of miniature chocolate chips. Hell, if you really want to go crazy, throw in 1-cup of miniature chocolate chips. Life is too short to deprive yourself of NEEDS.
