Healthy “Chocolate” Muffins

These muffins are delicious, free from refined sugar and are a great morning snack for kids and grown-ups alike! They contain protein, fibre and omega-3 for healthy brain development. The fact that they taste like chocolate is an added bonus and a great way to get kids to eat them. I always freeze some so I can grab one for baby’s morning tea on the go. If you need to make these nut-free for school lunches just substitute the almond meal with extra flour. If making dairy free, use almond milk and coconut yoghurt.

Ingredients

1 Cup wholemeal flour (I use spelt)

½ Cup Oats

¼ Cup almond meal

2 Tbs raw cacao powder (can use ordinary cocoa powder)

1.5 Tsp baking powder

1 Tsp cinnamon

1 egg

½ Cup milk

¼ Cup Greek yoghurt

¼ Cup maple syrup

2 Tbs olive oil

1 Tsp vanilla extract

Method

Preheat oven to 170 C.

Blitz oats in food processer until flour like consistency.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Then whisk the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until well combined.

Add mixture to greased mini muffin tins and bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned, and spring back when lightly pressed in the middle. If using a larger muffin tin you may need 5-10 minutes more cooking time.

Enjoy!
