Muffins of Steel

prebaked steel muffins

I love these simple, omega-3 rich muffins. They taste healthy and wholesome. They are high in iron, low in sugar, and easy to make.

Power-packed & nutrient dense, these muffins are a perfect breakfast, post workout snack, or on-the-go energy blast during a busy day. Because the steel oats are soaked and the ingredients are simple, they are easy to digest and assimilate.

The recipe is quick and I highly recommend sprucing it up with your favorite toppings and spices. I like to add natural candied ginger, cardamon, nutmeg, dark chocolate, and walnuts. Zingy toppings like cranberries, orange zest, and pine nuts would be awesome too.

The basic recipe is:

  • 2 cups soaked in water (overnight) and drained steel cut, or irish oats
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 4 pasture raised eggs
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1/4 cup honey or grade b maple syrup
  • Toppings- nuts, dried fruit, chocolate, coconut, seeds, berries
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine drained oats and all ingredients except toppings in a bowl until well mixed.
  3. Line muffin tray with paper cups.
  4. Fill each cup 2/3 full with batter.
  5. Press toppings into batter. The muffins won’t rise much, so feel free to fill to brim.
  6. Bake for about 45 mins.
