Chocolate Marshmallow Muffins

Rocky road muffins are basically chocolate muffins with marshmallows and nuts on top. But these rocky road muffins are even better, because they're healthy -- well, sort of. Oat bran in the batter adds fiber to these tasty chocolate rocky road muffins.

Ingredients:

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups oat bran
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, divided
  • 1/4 cup miniature marshmallows

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 2 muffin tins with cooking spray or line with paper muffin cup liners.

  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, oat brown, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt together.

  3. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with milk, oil and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients. Stir until well-incorporated, but do not overmix. Stir in chocolate chips and half of the walnuts.

  4. Spoon into prepared muffin tins, filling halfway. Bake 10 minutes. Press a few mini marshmallows into the top of each chocolate muffin. Top with remaining walnuts. Bake another 2-5 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the chocolate part of the muffins comes out clean.
