  5. Stir in the chocolate chips, reserving a small amount to sprinkle on top of the muffins before they are baked (it looks nice having the chocolate chips float on top of the muffins).

  6. Oil the muffin tins liberally and add enough oat flour in each muffin tin by tapping and turning the pan to coat it all the away around each tin.

    Your muffins will slide right out with a simple butter knife after they are baked and cooled for a few minutes.

Recipe Notes

Customizing the recipe:

You can substitute the coconut sugar for regular granulated sugar, or brown sugar if you wish.

However, substituting the coconut sugar for honey or maple syrup will change the texture of the muffins, plus both honey and maple syrup have different levels of sweetness, so you can't sub cup for cup with these sweeteners.

You can swap out any nut or seed butter of your choice in place of peanut butter if you wish with no issues.
