These muffins are great on the go, great for breakfast or a snack.They are very versatile and delicious. I have included 12 of my favorite recipes, you can create your own and feel free to share 🙂

Ingredients:

1 ½ Cup yogurt
1 ½ Cup thick rolled oats or steel cut oats
4 Tbs. grass-fed butter or EV coconut oil, melted
½ Cup sweetener; coconut sugar, maple syrup, rapadura, honey, or other natural sweetener
1 ½ tsp.baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
¼ tsp. unrefined salt
*Flavor of choice; see below. You can either cut the fruit choice into little chunks or blend them with the rest of the ingredients, your choice.

Instructions:

  1. In a blender the night before, put the yogurt and oats then blend well (about 3 minutes).
  2. Cover and leave overnight in the blender.
  3. The next morning, pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Then add the rest of the ingredients to the blender, except any fruit unless you want it blended.
  4. Blend well; you may have to mix it with a knife to loosen it up. You can taste the batter to make sure the desired sweetness has been achieved and add more if needed.
  5. Once well blended, pour into well greased (with butter or coconut oil) muffin, loaf, or cake pan.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick (or fork) comes out clean (I have found that depending on climate baking time greatly varies. Please watch carefully to determine baking time.

These store well in an airtight container for p to 5 days in the fridge.
