For our next family request..we have my lovely husband or "Mr Plain" as is referred to around bloggy world.
When I asked him what I should make for my next post, he said "oh, how about Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins?" OK. I'm not sure if this just popped into his head or something he has been thinking about previously, but, either way..Tada!
These muffins are really yummy..very moist and chocolaty. Mr Plain enjoyed them very much.

3/4 cup rolled oats
