|Halloween Candy Muffins|
My girls woke up and immediately wanted to eat candy for breakfast. I convinced them to help me make muffins instead by saying we could put the candy in the muffins. It worked. Now they think they are getting candy for breakfast and I know they are getting more whole grains and healthy ingredients than they would normally. Win win.
Leftover Halloween Candy Muffins
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup liquid (we like unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
- 1 egg or egg replacement (we use chia seed: 1 tbsp chia to 3 tbsp water)
- 1/2 cup sweetener (white sugar, brown sugar, reduce liquid by 1/4 cup if using liquid sweetener)
- 1/4 cup or less of oil (can replace with 1/2 mashed banana or 1/4 cup applesauce)
- 1/2 cup broken up Halloween chocolate or candy pieces
|Chocolate bars and pieces are good.|
Mix flour, oats, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. If using chia seed egg replacer mix with water and set aside for 5 minutes then, in a medium bowl mix with liquid, sweetener and oil. If using egg simply beat all remaining ingredients but chocolate together in a medium bowl. Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients until just combined. Fold in chocolate pieces. Pour into 12 greased or lined muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.
Allow muffins to cool and enjoy!
