No! Don’t go! These are perfect for that easy, on-the-go, breakfast alternative. And are actually kind of healthy. You know, coconut oil & wheat germ, and all…. 🙂 But you really shouldn’t tell anyone because you’ll want them to think you’re giving them a treat!
Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Muffins
- 1 1/2 cups oats – old fashioned/quick oats
- 1 1/2 cups AP flour
- 2/3 cup toasted wheat germ
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp coarse salt
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/3 cup organic honey
- 1/3 cup raw sugar
- 1 1/2 cups 0% m.f. sour cream (or plain yoghurt)
- 1/2 cup oil (coconut, veg, ghee, butter – whichever you prefer)
- 1/2 to 2/3 cup dark chocolate chunks/chips
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, wheat germ, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine eggs, honey, sugar, sour cream/yoghurt, and oil. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients just until mixed. Be careful not over-mix! Toss in the chocolate chunks and combine by hand with a wooden spoon.
Using a 2 oz ice cream scoop, fill lined or greased cupcake tins. Bake for 16 – 18 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool on wire rack.
Enjoy with a hot cup-o-Joe on a cool Sunday morning while reading the news, or toss in your bag for a quick snack en route to work in the A.M.
