Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins – a healthier muffins with whole wheat flour and no oil that tastes like you are eating and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie!
I think muffins might be one of my favorite ways to start the day. I mean, who doesn’t like dessert for breakfast, right? But in all seriousness, muffins don’t have to be like cake. They can be loaded with whole grains, low in sugar and actually good for you!
These oatmeal chocolate chip muffins are loaded with whole grain oats, flax meal, whole wheat flour and have no butter or oil in them! You have to have some fun, so there are chocolate chips. But these muffins are super healthy, but taste like you are eating an oatmeal cookie.
One of my other favorite healthy muffin recipes are these Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Blender Muffins that are naturally gluten free with no butter, oil, or refined sugar. Healthy muffins really are a thing!
Oatmeal Muffin Ingredients
- Rolled Oats
- Brown Sugar
- All-purpose flour
- Whole Wheat flour
- Flax Meal
- Baking Soda
- Chocolate Chips
To make these healthy oatmeal muffins even better for you, I decided to add some flax meal. I am kind of obsessed with the stuff lately. I put it in smoothies all the time too.
It doesn’t change the taste, but adds fiber, protein, and omega-3’s. It is great to add to quick breads, and all sorts of other baked goods.
How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
- Combine the oats and the 1/2 the milk and let it sit for 5-10 minutes for the oats to get nice and soft and absorb the milk.
- In a large bowl whisk together the egg and brown sugar until it is nice and smooth.
- Stir in the applesauce and vanilla, mixing it well.
- Next you mix in both of the flours, soaked oats, flax meal, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
- Once combined stir in the remaining 1/2 cup milk and fold in chocolate chips.
- Fill muffin cups with batter. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.
These muffins are best served warm. I like to microwave any that don’t get eaten right away. You can also Freeze Muffins. Just let them cool completely and store in an air tight container for 2-3 months.
