Let's just say there's a reason I don't write recipes. My intentions are good, but I don't really know enough about baking chemistry to just throw together a bunch of ingredients that sound good, in theory, and make it work.
Case in point, the muffin things above. They may look promising, but they're terribly deceptive. I wanted oatmeal, pumpkin, sour cream, and chocolate chips. I love oatmeal and chocolate chips. I love pumpkin and chocolate chips. I love the puffiness of sour cream and pumpkin. So I needed to know what all of these combined would be like. The possibilities!
Turns out, the taste wasn't bad at all (except I had used cheap chocolate chips, ew), but they probably would have worked better as cookies. These chewy little bricks just never cooked all the way through, and they held on tight to their wrapper. I tried them hot, I tried them cold... I threw them all out before they reached three days old. Har har.
If anyone knows of a good recipe that uses oats, pumpkin and chocolate chip, though, please send it my way!
