Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Molasses Muffins

We love muffins in our house. They are usually easy and frugal to make. They also make a great addition to breakfast. My kids also love them for snacks. I have quite a few muffin recipes that I make and like, but I have been looking for some healthy muffins to make.

I came across a recipe on recipezar for a muffin with oatmeal and molasses in it. My husband loves molasses. Molasses cookies are one of his favorite cookies. So, I was pretty sure he would enjoy these muffins. I was not sure my kids would like them though. It is a bit of a strange combination and I just wasn’t sure about them.

It was a pretty healthy recipe, so I decided to go ahead and give it a try. I was shocked that they were a hit in my house. My kids and my husband loved them for breakfast. My son, who is the picky eater of the family, ate three one morning for breakfast and asked for another one later that day. They said these were definitely a “do again” as they call it.

I did adapt a few things on these. Mainly the amount of eggs. The original recipe called for 4 egg whites and I adjusted that to use whole eggs. Yes, egg whites are healthy, but it was easier just to put the yolks in too.

  3. Lynn, Do you think these would be good with raisins? I love molasses but I also love raisins. Maybe I’ll have to try them.


  4. I think these would be good with raisins. My husband would like them that way. My kids how ever would prefer the chocolate. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Would a gf flour blend work fine in these?
