Why A Muffin Top Is The Best Thing About Monday.
Day 26. Recipe 26.
We all want to make today better. However, it's hard to get on top when we don't fuel up with the right stuff to start our week. Sure, the cereal loaded with sugar is easy to grab, and the hot bowl of oatmeal will take too long to make us feel good, so we end up skipping the most important meal of the day.
We just walk in the week hungry, and that isn't right.
To sprint into the week, what should we eat?
A delicious, crispy, golden muffin top of course!
Bake them the night before and we can head out into our day in a jiffy.
Oaty Cherry Muffin Tops
- 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup agave syrup or honey
- 1/4 cup greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup sunflower oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs at room temperature
- 12 teaspoons cherry preserves
Step 1: Preheat an oven to 350 degrees and spray a standard size muffin tin with cooking spray. Make the oat flour by placing the rolled oats into a blender and pulse until finely ground.
Step 2: In a large bowl, add the oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine.
Step 3: In a medium bowl, syrup or honey, yogurt, oil, and vanilla extract and stir to combine. Add the eggs one at a time and mix. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth.
Step 4: Fill each muffin cup 1/2 full with batter. Top with approximately 1 teaspoon cherry preserves. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
May this recipe make you the top muffin this week!
Until tomorrow friends.
