Another Shot At Muffins: Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins

I never give up a battle!
My last muffins were good but there was definitely some space for improvement. So today I gave it another shot. This time however I gave them the good old fashioned chocolate/vanilla twist!
And guess what??.... I WON the battle!!!!

Have a look at this beauty


  • 50 gr oat meal 
  • 150 gr whole grain spelt flour 
  • 50 gr flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1,5 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 10 gr vanilla sugar
  • 50 gr brown sugar
  • 250 ml milk
  • 100gr crushed 85% chocolate
What to do:
Whisk together the dry ingredients : oat meal, spelt flour, flaxseed, baking soda, baking powder and vanilla powder.
Then beat up the eggs, add the oil and sugars (vanilla and brown), afterwhich you stir in the milk.
Once both mixes ready, stir in the wet mix into the dry mix. Make sure it gets a nice homogenous mixture and that you let in some air while stirring.
At the end you add the crushed chocolate and give it another good stir.
Put the mixture into buttered or slightly oiled muffin cups.... 20 min in the oven and voila!!!

Outcome: DUHLICIOUS!!!! Ask Chef Robert!!

  1. While everyone can use frugal cooking tips, no one needs to cut back on food costs more than a mom. When you have kids to feed, it becomes even more important that you provide them with cheap, nutritious food. Gone are the days when ramen noodles could sustain you for months . . . now you need healthy food on a tight budget!
