Oh you know, just another one of those walking-through-Whole-Foods-on-Christmas-Eve moments of clarity and awe-inspiring brilliance.
Yeah. I was strolling around Whole Foods on Christmas Eve (further known as “Not My Holiday”) when I decided I needed to make some Chocolate Chip Muffins with Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – inside them.
Being a visionary is exhausting.
Eating Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Stuffed Chocolate Chip Muffins is less exhausting.
They’re vegan, not too calorie heavy (Lily’s Stevia Sweetened Chocolate lends a helping hand), and for two carby goodies piled into one mega carby goodie, they’re not even all that carby. I know. “Carby” is both a real and a respected word in the English language. That’s why I used it. I mean, they even have 4g of fiber each. Thrilling!
Oh and they seem hilariously gluttonous which is great because I find nothing more hilarious than gluttony. Except maybe sloth. That shit is uproarious.

My favorite hybrid dessert is cake stuffed cake with cake inside of it:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Hope and pray your smoke detector doesn’t go off like absolutely always. Have your prayers answered.
MAKE THE MUFFIN BATTER:
In a medium bowl, combine your dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, salt, Truvia, and chocolate chunks – and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine your wet ingredients – coconut oil, applesauce and milk – until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just incorporated. Girl gonna be sticky. Don’t even worry about it.
MAKE THE COOKIE DOUGH:
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
Get out another medium bowl. Mix together your coconut oil, applesauce, vanilla extract, and date sugar until smooth.
Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and stir until fully mixed. Add in the oats. Add in the raisins.
Fill a silicone muffin cup about ¼ of the way with muffin batter. Roll up a little less than a tablespoon or so of cookie dough and press it on top the muffin batter in the muffin cup. Top with more muffin batter, filling the cup about ¾ full. Stick in the oven for 22 minutes or so. Remove, cool, destroy.
