Chocolate covered Katie is one of my all-time favorite blogs and I’m always baking with recipes from her website. Since we had a lovely 3 day weekend, I had plenty of time to spend messing around baking and not doing things like focusing on econ homework or on my first coding assignment for this semester.
These muffins are easy, delicious and perfect for an early morning where you have to be out the door super fast!
2.5 cups oatmeal
1 1/4 cup applesauce (i used unsweetened, but you could use whatever kind you would like)
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp honey
1 1/3 cup almond milk (could also use water. I prefer the way milk tastes)
1/4 cup coconut oil
dash of vanilla extract
dash of cinnamon
This is a pretty basic oatmeal muffin recipe. I mixed everything together in one bowl because I’m all about easy/minimal clean-up! I also added chocolate chips and dried cranberries to mine, but you could add pretty much any dried fruit, nut, or other mix-in you could think of and it would most likely taste delicious 🙂
I baked these at 380 for 24 minutes and let them sit for a while and am storing them in the fridge for the next week. They would hold up well in the freezer well too most likely! oh and make sure to use a cupcake liner or have a heavy hand with oil to coat the pan…there is a lot of liquid in the recipe and not a whole lot to bind it all together, so it’s important to let them set for a while before you take them out of the pan if you choose not to use a liner!
Let me know if you make them and have a fantastic week!
