My bakery style Oreo Muffins are rich, chocolatey and moist – packed with chunks of Oreos – they are hard to resist. Oreo muffins make a fantastic mid afternoon snack, dessert, or eat them for breakfast if you want. I won’t judge!
For this recipe, you will need: Plain flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda, egg, caster sugar, vegetable oil, whole milk, vanilla extract, plain yoghurt and Oreos.
Never pay silly money for an overpriced bakery or coffee shop muffin again. These Oreo muffins are so easy I can whip up a batch in minutes and so can you.
The best muffin recipe
For these Oreo muffins, I use my tried and tested double chocolate muffin recipe but instead of adding chocolate chips I add bashed up Oreos instead.
They are so easy to make, it really is as simple as combining the dry and wet ingredients, putting the mixture into muffin cases and bunging them in the oven. Your entire house can be smelling like freshly baked muffins in 30 minutes!
There’s something about using Oreos in baking that takes things to a whole new level and cookies and cream is a great combination.
The muffins are soft and moist with an extra large high top that shows these muffins have been baked to perfection.
No flat or lacklustre muffins here, we want a big muffin with a good rise just like the ones you see in the bakery (but taste much better!)
What makes these Oreo Muffins so good?
- Big high topped muffins
- Better than bakery, coffee or shop bought muffins
- Moist and soft
- Full of flavour
- Chunks of Oreos throughout
- Foolproof recipe that works every time
Oreo Muffins FAQ
Can I make these muffins plain?
Yes, just leave out the cocoa powder.
Can I freeze Oreo chocolate muffins?
Absolutely! Once baked, allow the muffins to cool then wrap them tightly. Oreo muffins can be frozen for 3 months.
When you’re ready to eat them, remove from the freezer and let them defrost at room temperature for 3-4 hours. Microwave them in 30-second bursts or wrap them in tin foil and oven bake for 10-15 minutes.
How long will muffins stay fresh after baking?
Stored at room temperature in an airtight container these muffins will stay fresh for 2 days. You can refrigerate muffins for about a week and reheat as per instructions above.
Can I use baking powder instead of bicarbonate of soda?
There’s a science behind baking powder versus bicarb. You can substitute bicarb for baking powder doubling the amount of baking powder to soda. Read more about the differences here.
- You can substitute the plain yoghurt with greek yoghurt, sour cream or creme fraiche
- You can substitute the egg for applesauce, mashed banana or flaxseed mixed with a little water
- You can use granulated sugar if you don’t have caster/fine sugar
