Starting the day with a good breakfast is important, especially for kids. And the best way to start the day is with a healthy and filling breakfast. These oatmeal honey breakfast muffins that I am sharing today are perfect for just that.

I was recently contacted by Vitacost about developing a recipe using some of their products. I have posted before about how much I like Vitacost, especially for gluten free items, so this was an easy challenge to say yes to.

Vitacost Box

My box of products arrived last week and I had so much fun working with the products over the weekend. They sent me several new things that I had never used before like coconut sugar and cacoa nibs.

I received two kinds of cacoa nibs. The regular ones I used in the muffin recipe I am sharing today. The other one was chocolate covered cacoa nibs and I think they are my new favorite snack. My son and I both love dark chocolate and we both loved the chocolate covered cacoa nibs. I think they would be great in some homemade trail mix.

When I was thinking about a recipe using Vitacost products breakfast instantly came to mind. Last week I shared a recipe that my daughter made by changing up one of my recipes. Well today I am using her basic idea but have changed it up quite a bit using the products Vitacost sent me.

I used the coconut sugar in place of the brown sugar. It worked great in the recipe and gave it a little different flavor than brown sugar that I enjoyed. I think either one works fine in the recipe.

I also added some honey to the recipe. I love honey. I love the flavor and the fact that it is a natural sugar. I can eat honey by the spoonful and love the flavor it adds to recipes like this.

And for the add ins to the recipe I made some with cacoa nibs, but really raisins or other dried fruit would work as well. The cacoa nibs gave the muffins a nice chocolate taste without adding sweetness to it, which I enjoyed. It made them more of a healthier muffin than adding chocolate chips.

    So this recipe doesn’t call for any kind of flour? Wow, this looks like a good one. Going right now to try it. My kids saw the picture and said yes, Momma we want these for lunch!

    Thanks!

    They turned out so wonderful! They were delicious! Thank you again for the recipe. My grandparents are muffins eaters, practically eating three muffins a day. My Grandma can’t cook very much anymore, so I shall make these for them, she has to use a wheelchair/walker. Between my Mom making muffins for them and me making them some as well, they should be well set with muffins for a while.

  3. Any particular reason this has to be quick-cooking instead of old fashioned oats? I generally don’t buy the quick-cooking ones…

  4. Do you think these would work with fresh or frozen blueberries?

    • Yes, I think they would be good with either fresh or frozen blueberries. I think raspberries would be good too. This is one of those basic recipes that you could add all sorts of things to and it would be great. I hope you enjoy them.

  5. I have no coconut oil, would canola be ok?
