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!


  2. Jennifer M. says:

    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?
