Breakfast Chocolate Desserts Muffins & Scones

Oreo Muffins

January 11, 2012

In an effort to clear out my pantry, I’ve been making a lot of goodies using ingredients leftover from the holidays. Instead of going into the kitchen, snacking on an Oreo, and little by little demolishing the entire package, I found a recipe for Oreo Muffins. Muffins are a favorite for me for breakfast. I like that I can freeze them and grab one out of the freezer and it’s almost completely thawed by the time I get to work to enjoy it. These muffins are excellent with a cup of coffee and they’ll use the last of those Oreos tempting you in the kitchen.

So, how’s it taste?

They aren’t the prettiest things to come out of my oven, but they are packed with Oreo flavor. Oreos are one of my favorite cookies to turn into a sweet treat. I baked mine for about a minute too long, so be sure you set your timer to the lowest time and check them often. Even though they were slightly overcooked, I really liked them. Cookies and cream flavor with a crunchy topping. I liked the tiny bursts of chocolate from the chips, too. The muffin is so good, you could even skip the topping. The topping is delicious, but makes the muffin messy as it’s a bit on the crumbly and greasy side.

    I find it very odd that you have any leftover Oreos in your kitchen. If I buy them, they are gone in like, 2 days MAX. R & I both love them!

      It is kind of weird. I actually don’t care too much for straight up Oreos, but I have no self-control if a bag is in front of me. And I hate double-stuff. I wish they’d make just the cookie part. I’ve been known to scrape out the inside and toss it! I think that’s why I like the treats made out of them better. 😉

    Agreed with Beth. I could eat an entire box in a day. I could sure go for one of these muffins right about now though, since I didn’t eat breakfast!

      I made stuff out of leftover Oreos to keep me from snacking…but of course, I just inhaled the muffins instead!

    Um, Oreo anything is pretty freakin’ awesome. I can eat them straight from the box, double stuffed, mint, golden, mini, you name it. I love how they are so versatile too.

      And stuffed inside a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie, right?! 😉
