This recipe only uses gluten flour and oatmeal, making a real hearty, thick and natural tasting muffin.
If you think you will enjoy a more cake like consistency replace 1/2 the wheat gluten flour with whole wheat flour.
Once water hits the gluten flour it turns into a rubberized texture locking everything in place in that shape.
Your best application is to season everything for the gluten flour making sure it is evenly distributed for best results.
Add your liquids, and be ready to cook it.
Chips on top whether you put extra or locate the chips to the top and within the muffin is important for the perfect muffin. The chips are the fun part so make sure they are throughout your bread muffin and on top. Once cooked and cooled if you put these in the fridge they will chill and chocolate will harden.
On counter top chocolate will stay room temperature depending on your weather.
The easiest way to get muffins out of tin if they stick is with a spoon. Especially with the chips on top. Take a spoon and go around the muffin before pulling it out. You can also get the spoon under the muffin assisting its exit from the tin.
