Mocha Oatmeal Muffins

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 12


  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 2/3 cup oats
  • 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips/chunks
  • 1 cup plain natural yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee, not instant if you can help it!
  • 1/2 stick (56g) butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C and grease a muffin tray. You can use liners if you like, but I didn't for these muffins, just sprayed the pan with Bake-Easy.
  • Place the flour, oats, cocoa, sugar, bicarb, baking powder and chocolate chips into a medium sized bowl and stir until combined.
  • Place the yoghurt, coffee, melted butter, eggs and vanilla into a jug and whisk together with a fork until combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined, don't over mix.
  • Split the batter between the muffin holes, about 3/4 full then place in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown and an inserted skewer comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. If you're using liners, remove from the muffin tin immediately to stop the liners peeling away from the muffin.
  • Muffins will keep in an airtight container, at room temperature for up to 4 days.
