Coconut Trail Mix Muffins

Coconut Trail Mix Muffins
If you liked my Chocolate Trail Mix Muffins, but don't always want to eat chocolate for breakfast, this simpler coconut version is perfect.  Very mild, with tons of protein packed seeds, this moist "bowl of oatmeal to go" is a great way to start a busy day.  I ate them three days in a row last week for breakfast and felt full for hours afterwards. If only I had another batch in my fridge!

Coconut Trail Mix Muffins

1 1/2 C. organic old fashioned oats (gluten free if desired)
1/2 C. raw sunflower seeds
1/3 C. chia seeds
1/4 C. ground flax seeds
1/4 C. unsweetened organic shredded coconut
1 T. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C. almond butter
1/3 C. pure maple syrup
1 1/2 C. organic plain soy milk 
1/2 tsp. pure almond extract

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oats, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut flakes, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl mix together the almond butter and maple syrup until smooth.  Add the soy milk, almond extract, and the syrup mixture in with the oats and stir well to combine.  Pour batter into a paper lined muffin tin and bake at 350F for 20 - 25 minutes.  Makes 12 muffins.
