Chocolate Chip Yogurt Oat Muffins

On Monday I said that I was back from my break. I guess I was wrong. I got a stomach bug and decided to extend that break a few more days. I hope you don’t mind. . .I feel a lot more like talking about food now! :) I’m glad I finally got my appetite back because these muffins have been sitting on my counter without me being able to eat them!

They are actually the second batch that I have made in two days. My husband already finished off the first batch (probably because there isn’t much food in our house at the moment. . .), so I needed to make them again so I could have some!¬†These yogurt oat muffins are perfect to have one hand as a snack or a quick breakfast. They are low-fat, loaded with complex carbs and protein, oh, and they contain the chocolate and oat combination. . .which we all know is one of the best when it comes to muffins! :)

If you aren’t a huge fan of chocolate, you could add cut up apple, or dried cherries/cranberries, etc. (I think I’m going to try apples next with a little cinnamon.) So whether you are looking to get back on track this new year by consistently eating a healthy breakfast, or you just want a tasty option to have on hand for snacks, these yogurt oat muffins can help with both!
