Quite honestly, these should really be called cupcakes and in the dessert section. We just always make them for breakfast or brunch.
Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Spray muffin pan with cooking spray or use paper liners. Soak oatmeal in yogurt 3 to 5 minutes. Mix almond milk with vinegar and set aside. Mix milk mixture and oatmeal mixture with sugar and beat well. In small bowl, combine flour with salt, flaxseeds, baking soda, and baking powder and add to batter and mix. Next, add oil and vanilla. Mix well. Lastly, stir in chocolate chips and nuts in by hand. Fill each cup in the muffin pan q full with the batter. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of a muffin. Remove and cool on cooling rack.
When mixing the batter be careful and do not over mix—it overdevelops the flours gluten and creates toughness.
