Strawberry Chocolate Breakfast Muffins + A Fun Blog Addition

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.

Ingredients

1/4 cup chocolate whipped honey (sub with regular honey or 1/2 cup sugar)
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup almond milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 Tbsp flax seed meal

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease muffin tin with cooking spray.

Chop strawberries finely.

In medium bowl - mix together chocolate whipped honey, eggs, sugar, cooked quinoa, 1 tsp vanilla, olive oil, almond milk.

In small bowl - mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, flax seed meal, chocolate chips, and strawberries.

Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake for 25-30 minutes for large muffins depending on oven.

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 1/2 cup sugar to the recipe.
