Quick & Easy Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffins for the kiddos! 

Great for Breakfast or an easy snack ​

I love making muffins with my 5 year old! It's a great bonding activity for us and helps get out the wiggles with all the mixing, measuring and excitement with tasting all the yummy ingredients. 

What you need:  Muffin Pan or Mini Muffin Pan

I just bought a silicon mini muffin pan for $15 from Target since mini muffins are less crumbly and my kids feel special they get TWO muffins vs one (jokes on them, because they're small, lol). 

PREP: 20 minutes

COOK: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

 

MUFFIN INGREDIENTS: 

1 1/3 cups flour (whole wheat if you wanna be extra healthy)

3/4 cup old fashioned oats

4 tbsp light brown sugar

3 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp ground flax seed milled (optional)

2 medium eggs

3/4 cup milk (whole preferred, or 2%)

1/4 cup unsalted butter melted

1 small apple grated with the peel (1/2 cup apple sauce to save time)

3 tbsp mini chocolate chips 

Other Options to try with your muffin base besides chocolate chips: 

Blueberries (we like blueberries AND chocolate chips, about a handful in your batter)

Carrot, Raisin & Walnuts: 

1/4 medium carrot grated

1 tbsp Raisins 

1 tbsp Walnuts 

 

Enjoy!!!
