About this recipe:Delicious moist muffins that are great for lunch boxes. Leave out the chocolate chips if you want to make them healthier but sometimes a little chocolate doesn't hurt because these muffins have no oil or butter! You can use oat bran instead of porridge oats if you prefer a finer texture.
