mini-muffins-chocolate-chipsA quick and easy snack or breakfast.
This recipe makes about 36 bite-sized muffins. The mini-muffins freeze well for about 2 months in freezer bags. On a busy morning, just take the muffins out of the freezer and warm them briefly in the microwave. 

Makes: 36 bite-sized muffins
about 10 minutes

1 ½ cups Greek-style yoghurt, plain
½ cup quick oats, uncooked
½ cup brown sugar

1 ¼ cup spelt or all-purpose flour
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoons baking powder
1 baking soda
½ cup mini chocolate chips

How to:

  1. In a large bowl, combine yoghurt, oats, sugar, vanilla pod seeds and egg yolks. Stir well and set aside for about 5 minutes for the oats to soften.
  2. Preheat oven to 365° F.
  3. Stir in mashed banana.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add flour mixture to yogurt-oat mixture and stir well.
