Coconut Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins

These are soooo yummy hot out of the oven.  This has now become my favorite muffin recipe!

Coconut Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2/3 cup oat flour (ground up rolled oats)
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup coconut Greek Yogurt (I used Chobani)
    1 tsp coconut extract + 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup coconut milk
1 cup semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut (for topping)
Coconut oil cooking spray

1.  Preheat oven to 425*F.   Spray muffin pan with coconut oil spray (I used a mini silicone muffin pan).
2.  In large bowl, mix flours, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
3.  In bowl of mixer, mix egg with honey.  Add yogurt and beat until combined.  Add vanilla and combine.
4.  Add flour mixture and coconut milk to sugar mixture, alternating between the two until combined.
5.  Gently fold in chocolate chips.
6. Add mixture to muffin tin, almost filling each cup.
7. Sprinkle with coconut.
8.  For mini-muffins, bake for 14 minutes or until lightly browned.  For regular muffins, bake 16-20 minutes.

Enjoy!!! I know I did!
