I’ve been eating hot oatmeal for breakfast for a few months now. Recently, I got tired of it. I needed a change. I decided to make myself some healthy muffins for breakfast this week. I found this recipe online somewhere and adapted it a little. You can omit the carob chips or replace them with something else (fruit, chocolate, nuts..).
VEGAN SPELT OAT MUFFINS WITH CAROB CHIPS
1 1/2 cup spelt flour (I used sprouted spelt flour from One Degree Organics – Whole Foods sells this brand as well as Herbs & Nutrition, Noah’s , Big Carrot and Fiesta Farms)
3/4 cup oats (I used organic)
2 tsp cinnamon (I used Organic)
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder (non alum)
1/4 tsp salt (I used Himalayan Pink)
2 large mashed ripe banana (organic, frozen – than defrosted!)
1/2 cup coconut oil (I used the Organic Nutiva kind)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sweetened carob chips (omit or replace with dried fruit, nuts or chocolate)
In a large bowl, mix large ingredients. In a smaller bowl, mix wet ingredients. Add wet to dry and mix until just blended. Spoon into a muffin tin and bake for 15mins at 350F.
Here is what mine look like:
