1 cup boiling water
2/3 cup rolled oats
4 tablespoons butter, cut up
1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup cinnamon chips
In a medium sized mixing bowl, thoroughly mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
In another mixing bowl combine boiling water, oatmeal, and butter. Let sit for 20 minutes.
With a spoon, beat the eggs and vanilla into the oatmeal mixture.
Stir oatmeal mixture into dry ingredients until mixed.
Stir in cinnamon chips.
Place paper liners into muffin pan (wasteful, maybe, but it beats cleaning the pan--one of these days I'm going to buy some from Bake It Pretty) and spoon the batter into the cups. Bake 18-20 minutes in 400 degree oven.
Let cool slightly and transfer to wire rack.
