chocolate chip oatmeal muffins (with a coffee glaze) from Jocelyn at Inside BruCrew Life look really yummy and don't call for any unusual ingredients.
Well, maybe toffee baking bits would be unusual to some people, but I nearly always have them on hand. Even the coffee glaze uses just a couple teaspoons of leftover coffee.
An interesting feature of this recipe is the Cake Spice -- a dry spice mixture which Jocelyn makes and keeps on hand in a jar to use in baking. It seems like it might give a warm fall and winter flavor to these muffins.
These muffins would make a nice kitchen gift. The coffee glaze and the sprinkle of chocolate mini chips (alternatively, I think chocolate jimmies would also work well) make them a little bit fancy.
I've learned that I can trust Jocelyn's recipes. She is an amazing and prolific baker who has never steered me wrong yet.

I just may try these for some of the kitchen gift recipients on my Christmas list!
