These wholesome oatmeal muffins make an ideal breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a muffin pan and set aside.
In a bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Mix well.
Add applesauce, egg, juice or water, and vanilla extract. Mix well, then stir in chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into the prepared muffin pan. Bake 17 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out dry.
