Recipe of the Week: Oatmeal Muffins!

24 Feb

This is a three for one special! Well, really it’s a endless possibilities special because these muffins have so many different and delicious possible add-ins. I selected Blueberry Strudel, Raspberry Dark Chocolate, and Banana Chocolate Butterscotch as my launching pad, but if you think it would be good in oatmeal, it would probably be pretty great in these muffins. Here’s the base recipe and then the flavor add-in combinations are underneath. They’re all easy to make and are a great filling breakfast. The oats do need to soak for about an hour before hand, just so you can plan accordingly.

Oatmeal Muffins

Makes 24

Adapted from Simple Bites

2 cups Almond Milk
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 cups Rolled Oats (not the quick kind)

2 eggs room temperature
½ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup coconut oil or butter, melted and cooled
½ cup apple sauce
splash of vanilla
2 cups 4 tbs flour
½ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp ground cinnamon

Mix the oats, almond milk, and vinegar in a bowl and let sit for an hour before assembling the rest. Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees and line or grease muffin tins. After an hour mix the eggs, sugar, oil/butter, apple sauce and splash of vanilla into the oats. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined, making sure not to over mix. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. It will be closer to 20 if you add frozen fruit.

Blueberry Strudel Oatmeal Muffins

Gently fold in blueberries after all of the other ingredients have been combined.
For the Strudel topping combine the following ingredients in a bowl and evenly sprinkle on top of each muffin.
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup granulated sugar
6 tbs melted butter/coconut oil
pinch of salt

Raspberry Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Muffins

Gently fold in 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips, 2 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen) after the other ingredients have been combined.

Banana Butterscotch Chocolate Oatmeal Muffins

Substitute 2 ripe, mashed bananas for the 1/2 cup of apple sauce. Stir in 1/2 of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup butterscotch chips to the dry ingredients.
