Here’s my recipe for quick, easy, homemade maple oatmeal mini muffins. They’re great to bring to brunch, and not too sweet. I wanted to try to make these with whole wheat flour, but was out when I went to make them. I’ll definitely try it next time! If you’d like to sweeten them up a bit, you can add more brown sugar to the recipe.
Maple Oat Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins recipe
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar (if you’d like them sweeter, you could try more)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1/8 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- A little extra flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon for the sprinkled tops
Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. (Flour, quick oats, baking powder, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt). In a separate bowl, mix together the liquid ingredients (milk, egg, canola oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract). Mix in 1/4 cup chocolate chips (or more! No judgements!).
Spray a mini muffin tin, and fill cups to the top with mixture. In a small bowl, whisk together some flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon, and sprinkle it over the tops of the muffins.
Bake at 375 degrees for 16 minutes, or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
