I had a little bit of buttermilk left in the carton this morning so I decided to play with a few ingredients and the result was these tasty little treats. You will need a kitchen scale for this recipe since most of the measurements are based on the weight of a large egg.

If an ingredient is listed as "1 x something", then add one times the weight of the egg(s) that you used in the recipe. If an ingredient is listed as "1 x 1/4 t. something", then add one quarter teaspoon for each egg used in the recipe. If you use small or medium eggs, you will have to reduce flavouring and rising agents a little bit.

Servings:
18 mini muffins
Preparation Time:
30 minutes
Tools
  • kitchen scale
  • small microwave safe bowl
  • small mixing bowl
  • medium mixing bowl
  • spatula
  • whisk
  • measuring spoons
  • one 18 hole mini muffin pan per large egg
  • mini muffin papers

Ingredients

  • Some number of large eggs.
  • 1 x buttermilk
  • 1/2 x dark brown sugar

  • 1/2 x butter
  • 1 x buttermilk

  • 1 x whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 x cocoa powder
  • 1 x 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 x 1/4 t. vanilla
  • 1 x 1/8 t. cinnamon
  • 1 x 1/8 t. baking soda
  • 1 x 1/2 t. baking powder

  • 1 x chocolate chips
Cooking Instructions
  1. Place the medium mixing bowl onto the scale and zero the scale.
  2. Crack the egg(s) into the bowl and write down the weight of the egg(s).
  3. Add the brown sugar and the first portion of buttermilk and set aside.
  4. Place the small microwave safe bowl onto the scale and zero scale.
  5. Stir in the butter, second porttion of buttermilk, and rolled oats.
  6. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
  7. Place the small mixing bowl onto the scale and zero the scale.
  8. Stir together all of the remaining ingredients except the chocolate chips.
  9. Use the whisk to beat the egg, buttermilk, and sugar mixture.
  10. Pour the flour mixture over the egg mixture.
  11. Use the spatula to scrape the oat mixture over the flour mixture.
  12. Dump in the chocolate chips and gently fold together with the spatula.
  13. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full.
  14. Bake muffins at 325F for 12 minutes.
  15. Let muffins rest in the pan for 6 minutes before removing muffins to a wire rack.
Notes


I only have thick rolled oats so I use the microwave to soften the rolled oats so they will be completely cooked in the muffin. If you use a thin rolled oat, then you can skip the microwave step. Instant oatmeal and steel cut oats will not work in this recipe.
