Kid-Friendly Omega-3 Recipe {Chocolate Yogurt Muffins}

Chocolate Yogurt Muffins
Omega-3 Kid-Friendly Recipe

This kid-friendly chocolate muffin recipe if a favorite around our house! Which is great, because my kids aren't big fish fans, and I want them to have plenty of DHA Omega-3 to help support their eye, brain, and heart health. Flax seed is rich in omega-3, and it's easy to hide in these dense muffins. Adding chopped walnuts not only ups the yum factor, but it adds even more Omega-3. And if you use milk and enhanced with Omega-3 (like Horizon Organic offers), you've got up to three great sources of Omega-3 in one recipe! The best part? These muffins are delicious! Your kids will never guess they're "healthified." Mine think they're cupcakes!

1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. flax seed (rich in Omega-3)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c. cocoa
1/2 c. chopped walnuts (rich in Omega-3)
1/2 c. dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. low fat or fat free vanilla yogurt
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. milk (try Horizon Organic's fortified with Omega-3)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray or line with baking cups.

Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. In another bowl, blend together yogurt, oil, and milk.

Add dry ingredients to yogurt mixture and stir just until blended.
Fill muffin cups with batter about 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 16 - 18 minutes or until a toothpicks comes out mostly clean. Makes 12 regular muffins. Yum!

DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3's. DHA is a major structural fat in the body, and has been shown to support brain, heart and eye health. Not only is DHA found in foods like salmon and eggs, but it can also be found in Horizon® Organic Milk enhanced with DHA Omega-3. Learn more about Horizon’s commitment to healthy families at
