Oreo muffins

I felt a little guilty making these. Normally I try to keep muffins and cupcakes separate. Muffins are less sweet, more appropriate for a breakfast food. These muffins, while still muffin-like in texture, definitely cross over to cupcake/dessert territory with their sweetness and indulgence in cookies and cream.

I’ve been obsessed with making oreo/cookies and cream creations lately, and this is my latest recipe.

I took a basic muffin batter and added some crushed Oreos. The crushed cookies and cream added a yummy sweetness to the muffin batter. I sprinkled the top with crushed Oreos as well.

My muffins came out a little browner than I would have liked, though they didn’t taste dry. I think next time I might lower the oven temperature or take them out a little sooner.

I’d feel a little guilty eating these for breakfast, but they make a great sugary snack. The inside is full of little bits of chocolate cookie and cream from the Oreos.

These muffins venture from breakfast to dessert. They are an indulgent and sweet treat!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • about 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup crushed Oreos
  • 1/4 cup crushed Oreos

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (I might lower this to 375 so the muffins don't turn out so brown). Line 12 muffin cups.

  2. Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup and add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup to 1 cup mark. Pour into flour mixture. Stir with a large spoon. Crush oreos in a food processor. Take 1/2 cup of oreos and stir into batter.
  3. Pour batter into muffin cups, about 2/3 full. Sprinkle remaining oreo crumbs on the surface of the batter.
  4. Bake for about 20 minutes until muffins turn golden brown and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
