A super-moist chocolate oatmeal chocolate chip muffins done the skinny way. Contains all of the flavors of a regular muffin with less calories - no oil or butter. Skinny Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins.
I cannot believe how cold it is outside today - wow! We woke up this morning to it being 5 degrees with a -5 degree windchill... that is downright cold in the DC area. Oh, we also woke up to our bathroom sink pipes being frozen. What a morning.
As I as writing this I am munching down on these skinny oatmeal chocolate muffins and letting our bathroom borrow our heater. I wish I was sitting by that right now... what can you do!
Hopefully I don't eat the whole dozen because I am freaking out right now. This is our first time we have owned our home and never had anything like this happen. Clay thinks I worry too much...I just think I have my reasons! 🙂
I can't believe this is my first skinny recipe I am sharing with you guys - don't you feel special? You should. These babies are delicious. Did I mention they do not contain and oil or butter and are delicious and moist? Oh yeah!
I love how you don't even need a mixer to mix these skinny deliciousness up. Save that for another time! They only require 18 minutes of baking. 😀
I think you guys will enjoy these because they will not make you cheat on your diet that you set for the new year. I think I will just go and grab another one!
