Chocolate Strawberry Mini Oatmeal Muffins

Ingredients
1 cup soy milk
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chocolate chips
2/3 cups chopped strawberries
1/2 unsweetened apple sauce
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder. I actually forgot to include this ingredient but it still worked out. If I had remembered to include it, I imagine they would have come out a bit fluffier and risen a bit more as well.  Without it though, I didn't' miss it. The  the mix in to batter ratio, combined with my mini tins, made me feel like I was still getting a satisfying bite.
