Great Grains Chocolate Chip Muffins


Who says chocolate can't be good for you? Or that things made with whole grains are boring?

Not these delectable muffins. Christine of Happy Tummy selected Great Grains Muffins for the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers to make this week. They looked good to me as is, but in case you're new around here, I like adding chocolate to almost anything I bake. These were no exception. When armed with a muffin with chocolate chips, it's a happy morning. A muffin made with whole wheat, cornmeal, oats, maple syrup and dried blueberries with chocolate chips? It's going to be a great day!

These muffins were even good after several days of sitting in my car. I ate one for dinner on my way to an evening event and it was still moist and delicious, and, of course, chocolaty.

Stop by and visit Christine. She'll have the recipe for you. And you can see what the other bakers thought by checking them out here.

I had an inkling that you would find a way to chocolate these up a bit. They look good...I'm pretending the chocolate is all blueberries! We loved these, Top Five loved them. (Of course I have about 20 Top Fives, but they are really good!)

These look great! Glad they survived being in a car. Always admirable for those crazy days!

I went with the chocolate chips on this one too Leslie! Mostly because I was worried they'd taste too healthy without them :) I agree, definitely a great muffin all around.

You know..if we're all going to gorge on goodies like these gooey, chocolate chip muffins, why not add some stuff that's healthy for us? At least I'll do something good for my body, since there will be more of it to take care of..lol

They look amazing, Leslie..well done!

You had the right idea with the chocolate chips! So many other TWD bakers added them and reported success that I'm going to now have to try them that way. I'm so glad you enjoyed these. Thank you for baking along with me this week!
