She-Ra Power Breakfast Muffins

I typically avoid "good for you" muffins because they tend to taste like cardboard to me. I tried these on a whim because I needed a good freezer muffin with some oomph behind it: one that's good for you, and filling. This fits the bill and I have to say I really like these. Original recipe from Suzanne Shares here.

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup old fashioned oats
A shake or two of cinnamon if you're into that
1/3 cup flax seed
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup brown sugar (not packed)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 bananas
1 cup of apple sauce
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk (I used skim and 2% at different times. I don't know if soy, almond, whatever will work)
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Line muffin tins with liners.

Mix all ingredients up to vanilla, Mix well and set aside. Add vanilla through milk to a separate bowl, and mix with a hand mixer until well-blended. Mix in dry ingredients with spoon, add chocolate chips (more or less to your liking).

Fill muffin tins 3/4 of the way. Bake 15-18 minutes. Recipe makes 24.

Now for the tip portion of this parade:

If you make muffins or cupcakes, life will be easier if you use an Oxo large cookie scoop to fill them. Fill it up, release into tin, boom, done. Onto the next one.
If you are freezing, cool muffins and then flash freeze in the freezer before packing them in a ziploc bag. One of my favorite things about this recipe is that there's no waste. They travel well to work and they're good for you.
Healthy but still good.
Chocolate in my breakfast?
Come hither, muffin.

  4. Bahahahaah... dying over the haiku!

    These look/sound YUMMY! I love muffins. I do NOT love muffin TOP.

  5. Haha! Nice haiku! :) I think every post should come with a haiku.

    And this was such a bad post for me to read when I'm sooo hungry! They looks so good.

  6. come hither, muffin. hahaha! these look delish!

  7. Oh these look SO good! Love the haiku, too. LOL

  8. Nothing says lovin' like
    something from the oven
    I am Betty Crocker

    This is the recipe I have been waiting for. I will tweak it a bit, of course. I am intrigued by the OXO(aka hugs and kisses) large cookie scoop.
    Stay warm. There is a wind chill factor out there today. Stay dry also. A monsoon is coming tomorrow.

  9. who can turn chocolate for breakfast down!

  10. These look yummy! I've made something similar before, but never thought to freeze them. And of course, I couldn't eat them all before they went bad. Thanks for the idea!

  11. well these look delicious and I'm over here starving!

  12. I may need to give these a try, since I ate brownies for breakfast today.

  13. Yum! I have a similar recipe I make sometimes but I always put raisins in them... no more! And yours have peanut butter. You win!

  14. I definitely need to try these...I've been wanting to switch up my breakfast routine lately!

  15. Yum and they have peanut butter and chocolate I can definitely get on board with these!

  16. I wish I was a baker/cook, everyone's recipes look so good but also so intimidating. :)

  17. These actually sound good! I am with you...most healthy muffins taste like cardboard. The cookie dough scoop is fucking genius. Though, not surprising that you would think of such genius. Speaking of genius...why do I always try to put an "o" in it?

  18. I would try these. I do love muffins!

  19. That Haiku is the bees knees. Chocolate in my breakfast? Yes please!

  20. hahaha come hither muffin, love it

  21. These look delish! I'm a big fan of muffins and I've heard apple sauce is a healthy substitute for oil when baking. Thanks for linking up your recipe!

  22. I had something to say and then I read the haiku and saw hither and I got so excited I lost my mind.

  23. I love muffins and these look delish! I also love that they're healthy :)
