Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins (vegan)

I made these today and added in a handful of kale to the blender with the soy milk - the green disappears once you bake.

Makes 12 standard sized muffins

Preheat Oven to 400


  • 1 1/4 c oatmeal
  • Handful of chopped raw kale
  • 1 1/4 c soy milk
  • 1 TBSP ground flax mixed with 3 TBSP hot water until gooey (or 1 egg)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli)
  • 1/2 c chopped walnuts *optional (chopped finely in Ninja)
  • 1/4 c shredded coconut *optional
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Combine oats and milk and allow to stand for 15 minutes

Spray muffin tin with cooking spray or line with liners

Stir flax, oil, brown sugar, and chocolate chips into the oat and milk mixture

Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. 

Add oat mixture to flour mixture, stirring until just moist. 

Bake at 400 for 15 min., check and bake 5-10 min. more (mine were close to being overdone by 20 min.)

You can also drop these by spoonful on a greased cookie sheet to make "muffin cookies" - I did this with the last of the batter that wouldn't fit the muffin tin and they turned out well

Freeze or eat immediately
