This recipe is quick, easy and the muffins will fill you up! I make them for my boyfriend because he has such a high metabolism. They keep him full at work until he can get lunch. You can add a lot of different mix-ins. So far, we've tried chocolate chips and some dried fruits. The oats seem to make the muffins more hearty and filling than the oatbran. Enjoy!

“A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. She raised a glass of water and asked “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers varied. She replied, “The weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, no problem. For an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. For a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. The weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes. The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water Think about them for a while, nothing happens. bit longer? they begin to hurt. think about them all day long? you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything. Always remember to put the glass down.

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 3/4 cup brown sugar 3/4 cup white sugar 1 cup Nutella 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 2 eggs 2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons of flour 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup of chocolate chips Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter in a mixer for 3 minutes. Add sugars and Nutella and mix well. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for 30 seconds between each. Add the vanilla and mix for 10 seconds. Sift together flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda (do not skip this step as sifting eliminates clumps of cocoa). Mix into the butter mixture on low speed until fully incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate the dough for ten minutes. Bake for 10-12 minutes and let cool.
