Would you like a breakfast like this or may be a snack for satisfying your evening hunger pangs?
These breakfast oats berry multi grain muffins is my go to recipe whenever my son craves for cupcakes. Yes we do have our share of indulgence but kids are kids and they really drool over sugary stuff. Candies, cookies , cupcakes , gummies and frosting- you name it and they will want to gobble it all.
I constantly make efforts to keep them to the minimum and rather encourage him to make healthier choices. And you know what he loves these muffins. He doesn’t care what they are made of . All he cares that he got his cuppies that is what he calls them.
Yes it’s possible to satisfy your sweet tooth this way and trust me you will feel better about taking a step forward by making a smart choice. Look at the moist crumb .
So what are these Breakfast oats berry multi grain muffins made of ?
I have used whole wheat flour , chickpea flour , semolina / rawa , ground old fashion oats (oats flour). So no all purpose flour added.
They are sweetened by raw sugar and addition of fresh berries. I love coconut sugar instead too.
So what makes the crumb so moist and not dry?
I love experimenting with many combinations to make healthier muffins. This time it was orange juice, avocado oil and Silk almond milk . Orange juice adds a hint of refreshing citrus feel to these muffins. Don’t be disheartened if you don’t have any of this available as I have mentioned substitutes for the same that works equally delicious .
We love these cupcakes because they are-
These aren’t like your apf / maida , sugar laden cupcakes, hence they are dense. They are not fluffy as the indulging ones. But they are healthier choice, moist and tender of course . They are not over the top sweet.
So when I made these today for my son’s play date all the kids really loved it. This is when I thought I have to share this recipe with all you wonderful readers.

In another bowl combine all the ingredients called for topping and keep aside.

In another bowl add sugar and milk .
Whip with an electric whisk or in a stand mixer attached with balloon whisk .
Add all remaining liquid ingredients .

Whip just until combined. Do not over whip.
Muffin batter is always on the thicker side.

Scoop the batter in your cupcake / muffin pan upto 2/3rd full.
Tap the pan gently over the counter.
Top each muffin with the oats berry topping.
Bake the muffins for 24-28 minutes or until the toothpick inserted comes with few crumbs and not with sticky batter.

Skip orange zest if you don’t have a microplane

Substitute avocado oil with canola or any preferred oil.
Frozen berries work well too. Just bake 2-3 minutes more.
Oats flour is nothing but ground oats . Just pulse your oats in the blender until flour like.
I have used cupcake pan instead of a muffin pan . This recipe yields 10 cupcakes or 6 muffins .
Cool it completely on a wired rack . Keeps well for a day at room temperature . For 4 days in the fridge . Individually wrap them in cling wrap and freeze up to 3 months . Thaw overnight in the fridge or 20 minutes over the counter before eating . You may warm it up if desired.
