Oat Bran Blueberry Muffins

blueberry muffins for post

I haven’t posted a recipe in a while but I HAVE been cooking and baking a lot. 🙂

Today is no exception. On the menu: Slow-Cooker Veggie Beet Borscht (new recipe from my upcoming cookbook), Bread Machine Rye and Fennel Bread (also from my upcoming cookbook) and Pineapple Cupcakes.

I’m getting hungry just typing this LOL. 😉

I’ve also been on a bit of a “muffin kick” . 

I bought some wonderful organic blueberries at our local food co-op recently and made up a batch of yummy blueberry muffins.

These are from my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians and they include the goodness of oat bran in them.

Adding coconut to top them is an idea I got from another muffin recipe. You can skip this step if you don’t like coconut. But it does add a nice crunchy topping, without the calories of streusel- types of toppings, with extra sugar, butter….

See following page for complete recipe.

What’s your fav muffin and if possible, do include a link to the recipe!

Happy Weekend and Happy Baking! 🙂

An (almost) Guilt-Free Chocolate Treat!

I was craving chocolate (big time!) a few days ago and not a square of chocolate was to be found in the fridge. 😦

I decided to browse through my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians and made these: Chocolate Oatmeal Muffins  as a almost guilt-free chocolate “fix” instead of heading to the store. I’m glad that I did.

Yummy, oh so moist and chocolatety too.

And not too bad when it comes to healthier ingredients. A better choice than a chocolate bar! 😉

I keep sugar to a minimum in all my baking and used about a 1/2 cup for these. You might want to add a bit more, to taste if you like sweeter dessert muffins.

The oatmeal keeps them nice and moist, even the next day.

I made BIG muffins, that’s why there’s only 6 in the photo above. Eight regular muffins can easily be made from one batch of batter.

Hope you enjoy these muffins too and do let me know if  you try them. 🙂

The complete recipe for: Chocolate Oatmeal Muffins is on page 2.
