  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup mini or regular sized chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter (discard or fresh from the fridge works too)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup oil (any cooking oil, melted butter or coconut oil work fine)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Stir together oats, milk, vanilla, and yogurt right away and let sit while you gather up the rest of your ingredients. You want the oats to have a chance to soften up a bit.

  2. Preheat the oven to 400 F and grease a 12 cup muffin tin.

  3. Stir sourdough starter and sugar into oats.

  4. In a small bowl, mix together flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

  5. Stir oil and egg into oat mixture.

  6. Then stir in dry ingredients until just mixed. Fold in chocolate chips.

  7. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin.

  8. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from muffin tin and cool on wire rack.
