These capture two of my favorite things: the taste of chocolate chip cookies, and the texture of a warm fluffy muffin. What more could you want?

I’ve been eating these in the mornings and afternoons with a hot cup of tea. They make the world just a little bit better.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Muffins (Makes 12)

1 1/4 C quick cooking oats

Next, add the flour, baking powder and salt to the oat mixture and stir until mixed completely. Line muffins tins and fill each cup 2/3 full. Sprinkle tops with the brown sugar and pecans.
