  • 1 ¼ cups milk

  • 1 cup chopped pecans, divided

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar, divided

  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine oats and milk in a medium bowl; allow to stand for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line cups with paper liners.
