Now that I’m an adult with gainful employment, I think it’s time to start eating a proper breakfast (as opposed to the crust of bread and tea I used to eat). So I’ve designed an oat muffin with a jam center surprise! The great part is that the muffin base is very simple to throw together, and the jam flavor can be changed on a whim, making a different muffin each time!
I like mini loaves, because they’re super cute, but muffins work too.
Ingredients – Base:
1.5 C oat flour (or oats put through the food processor)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C agave nectar
1.25 C hemp milk
1/3 C oil
1 Tbs flax meal soaked in 2 Tbs warm water
Ingredients – Flavor:
12 tsp jam
1/2 C nut or other chunky nibblet – coconut, chocolate chips, etc.
Have fun with your flavor combos; I like cherry jam with coconut flakes, or blueberry jam with pecans.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Oil or line muffin pan. Start the flax meal soaking in the warm water.
Mix dry base ingredients in a large bowl, then add liquids. Now you have muffin batter! Stir in the nuts of you choice. Fill muffin cups half way, and drop 1 tps of jam into the middle of each. Cover with remaining batter.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes (for mini loaves) or 25 minutes for muffins, or until golden brown. Let sit on cooling rack for 15 minutes, before removing muffins.
