Strawberry Chocolate Breakfast Muffins + A Fun Blog Addition

April 19, 2012 · 20 comments

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening!  Wherever you are, a breakfast muffin is a perfect treat really anytime of the day!  I shared this fun treat over at the lovely Bakeaholic Mama’s beautiful blog!  I was trying to decide what to shmear on the muffin this morning….yes I just said “shmear”….and totally forgot I had chocolate whipped honey still left.  Thank goodness I still have a couple muffins, there is always tomorrow!

Now I had to share, but I know you can see it too!  Thank you to the talented Cherry On Top Blog Design, my sidebar is all cleaned up.  I am so excited for the new additions to my blog, and the little coffee cup social media buttons are just too precious!

Here is the recipe for the Fun muffins!  I added milk to the recipe, somehow my muffins were a bit dry, BUT tasted wonderful!  You could add 1/4 milk, or only add 1 1/2 cups of flour.  The recipe is for five large muffins.  It will probably make 9-12 regular muffins, and you will only need to bake them for about 15-20 minutes.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 5

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup chocolate whipped honey (sub with regular honey or ½ cup sugar)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp flax seed meal

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Chop strawberries finely.
  3. In medium bowl – mix together chocolate whipped honey, eggs, sugar, cooked quinoa, 1 tsp vanilla, olive oil, almond milk.
  4. In small bowl – mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, flax seed meal, chocolate chips, and strawberries.
  5. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients. Fill muffin cups ¾ full. Bake for 25-30 minutes for large muffins depending on oven.
  6. Enjoy!

Notes
I added the milk after completing the recipe. I found the muffins to be slightly dry, so I wanted to add a little moisture. Plus, if you can’t find whipped honey, you could use regular honey or just add ½ cup sugar to the recipe.

What is your favorite strawberry treat?  What is your go-to breakfast when on the go?

    This site looks incredible, Terra! Love the design and may have to contact Cherry on Top Design when I’m ready. I agree, those breakfast muffins would be perfect for anytime (and I love that it includes flax, olive oil, quinoa and almond meal – all things this dietitian surely approves/and uses regularly.
