Here’s another recipe that I switched from whole wheat flour to oat flour with success! This is quickly becoming another morning favorite for breakfasts and snacking. I don’t remember where I got the original recipe, but I think it was from my mom, because these are one of my dad’s favorites!
First, make your oat flour. You need 3 cups of this (measured before grinding). I’ve found it easiest to do this 1 cup at a time in my blender, but if you have a fancier blender or use a food processor, you could probably do more at a time.
Add the remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) and mix just until combined. If your butter is still warm, mix everything a little bit first and then add it in, so you don’t end up scrambling your eggs (ask me how I know that one). Fold in chocolate chips.
Scoop into greased muffin tin, filling until almost full (because they don’t have gluten to help them rise), and bake at 400°F for 18-22 minutes. Let cool completely before removing from pans. If you take them out while they’re still warm, they’re a crumbly mess, but if you let them cool, they’re moist and delicious baked goods.
