Oats have entered our kitchen shelves big time and are added in a lot of dishes to create innovative, healthy and yummy recipes.
Oats is a type of Cereal grain which has cholesterol reducing properties and has high soluble fibre content. For its healthy properties we have a range of recipes from Oats dhokla, Oats dosa, Oats upma, Oats smoothie...the list is literally endless.
This recipe uses oats to make muffins and I added some Choco-chips to make them a little interesting. The result was this amazingly soft ,healthy and warm chocolate oozing muffins!!
Well, this also brings us to the eternal debate of Muffins vs Cupcakes. Both the words have baffled the foodies for the longest time. Very simply put cupcakes are actually miniature cakes with icing and decoration while muffins are usually eaten for breakfast with no icing and often contain some fruit or choco-chips. Muffins can be sweet and savoury.
Ingredients: will yield 8-9 muffins
- 1 cup refined flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup sugar (powdered)
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 2 tbsp choco-chips
Preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius. Grease muffin tins with butter and dust with flour.
Take butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with a beater till it smoothens and becomes creamy. Add egg and vanilla essence and mix till blended well.
Sieve flour and baking powder in another bowl and mix oats. Now add this dry mixture in the sugar,butter and egg mixture (wet mixture). Mix well.
Add choco chips and put this batter in the prepared muffin tins.
