Well, it's been a really really long time since I've posted on here, but things have changed and I think this will be a good place to do a little experimenting and venting and rambling and a place for some pintrest pins to point to....So, here's the first one.
PS, I'm on a journey to becoming healthier so most recipes will be leaning that direction. But I'm also teaching some at the local vo-tech so there will be recipes that are full on fat and butter and all the goodness that goes with it!
These muffins have a little texture from the rolled oats (if you don't like that texture then leave the rolled oats out and add a 1/4 cup more old fashion oats) and are very chocolaty (if you use the chocolate chips) and rich and really took a bite out of my chocolate sweet tooth!!! There is a hint of banana flavor but don't let it turn you off, it's not strong!
Dark Chocolate Muffins
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (You could use vanilla Greek yogurt and leave out the vanilla)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons hazelnut oil (or) coconut oil
2 cups old fashioned oats(process in food processor to make into a flour texture)
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1/2 cup grain sweetened chocolate chips (optional) (I use SunSpire brand)
I think some walnuts would be a nice added crunch probably 1/2 to 1 cup...
Mix all dry ingredients and set aside, mix all wet ingredients, then add dry to wet and mix until combined. Divide into 12 muffin tins, sprinkle with additional chocolate chips if you want. Bake 400 about 15 minutes.
