It was so nice having muffins for breakfast last week that I decided to make up another batch for this week. I tried to find another relatively healthy recipe that was completely different from the last one. This chocolate one looked great and had good reviews so I gave it a shot. These were great and will be perfect for breakfast this week!
1 cup Fiber One® cereal
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375 F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).
In medium bowl, mix cereal and buttermilk; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in oil and egg. Stir in remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir in chocolate chips. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately remove from pan. Serve warm.
