Little Monster Muffins (flour-free)

Muffins says: Eat Me!

I used to love baking cookies - and one of my favorite cookies to make was Monster Cookies... but if you make the original recipe it's loaded with sugar - which is part of the reason why they tasted so dang good. Now I've reduced the sugar and used a sweeter sweetener: honey! And I've got coconut oil instead of butter or margarine. When I first tried this alternative recipe as a cookie - it was a bit crumbly and the bottoms burned. When I tried it as a muffin - it was a success!

Fresh and hot from the oven!

1/2 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
1 1/2 cups chunky peanut butter (or alternative nut/seed butter)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
4 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
75 grams extra pure chocolate bar, chopped fine (70% cocoa)
100 grams M&M chocolate candies

In a food processor cream together:
     coconut oil, peanut butter, honey and sugar.
Blend in extract and eggs.
Mix in oats and baking soda.
Fold in chocolate and M&M candies.
Spoon into lined paper cups.
Bake 15 minutes in preheated oven at 175-C degrees (350-F).
Let cool completely. 
Peel away paper liner, eat and enjoy.
Good with cold milk.

Cooled and ready to devour!


Who is that cute little monster behind that awesome looking muffin? Both look wonderful! Hope your summer is going well for you, Melissa!
