Chocolate chip coffee muffins with oats

Recipe for these muffins comes from the taste traveller web site . I wanted to bake them as the combination of ingredients was very interesting. It is a really healthy and low in sugar snack. Thanks to being filled with fibre and some dark chocolate it is good energy kick for those who are tired in the middle of the day. The fibre in these muffins comes from oats and wheat germ. The last one is not only source of fibre but is rich in vitamins such as E and B complex and minerals as well. The health benefits of wheat germ include high protein levels, plus doses of vitamins, fibre, and iron. More information  about wheat germ is available on this web site  Wheat germ might be added to yogurts, milk, breakfast cereals. Another recipe for muffins with this particular ingredient is healthy muffins with pineapple and carrot .
