J's Choco-Wal-Flax-Oatmeal Mini-Muffins

Hello again, Readers,

I've been craving chocolate lately, but not wanting to give into the urge to snarf down *a bunch* of high-bad-fat Belgian heaven, coupled with enough pain to keep me in, as well as a weekend trip coming up soon for which I'll need some healthy and easy breakfast options, I came up with these chocolatey lil devils today.

No butter, no sugar, no white flour, no salt, no yokes and even so, it was a challenge not to enjoy them into extinction.

J's Choco-Wal-Flax-Oatmeal Mini-Muffins

1/2 cup of ground flax seeds
1 cup oat flour  
1/2 cup quick oats  
1/3 cup cocoa powder 1 tsp baking soda Stevia, (dose depending on your type)
-or 1/2-2/3 cup of honey, (Acacia would be great with its delicate flavor)
1 egg white, (or whole egg for those not watching the lipids)
1/3 cup olive oil, EV
~1 cup of spelt milk, (or whatever "milk" you dig)
1/2 cup walnut halves, crushed

Blend all the dry ingredients and whisk the wet, then mix both together and drop into muffin tins, (~2tbsp per cup), and bake in a preheated oven at ~190C, (375F) for 25-30 minutes.

All ingredients organic when possible.

Makes 9 muffins.

Due to my going pretty light on the Stevia, I shmanged more than a few down with some lovely lemon-mandarin marmalade.

Chocolate craving, satisfied.

bon ap,
