Making Homemade Chocolate-Topped Oatmeal Muffins
Avena sativa is the scientific name of the common oat. Most of us know oats as a meal consumed in many American households every morning, usually in the form of oatmeal. In some instances, oats are ground into flour and used to make bread, cookies, cakes, and, of course, in this case, muffins.
If you’ve not had oatmeal muffins yet, there are a few reasons why you should.
- Oats are an excellent source of crucial minerals including selenium, manganese, phosphorus, thiamin, iron, and others.
- Oats contain 2 types of fiber, soluble and insoluble fiber. This means consuming oats in the morning will help keep you full for a long time. That way, you can avoid unhealthy bingeing, and reduce your daily caloric intake in the process. So if you are looking to lose a few pounds, now you know a healthy way to help you do so.
Ready to get started? The simple, but yummy, oatmeal muffin recipe is listed below.
A word of caution though before continuing - if you or someone who is likely to consume these muffins has celiac disease, make sure the oats you intend to use are 100% gluten-free. While oats are indeed gluten-free, most brands are contaminated with little traces of gluten. This is because they are usually processed in the same facilities that process wheat, barley, and rye flour.
Enjoy and good luck with your baking!
