Cookies and Cream Muffins

These cookies and cream muffins, filled and topped with crushed Oreo cookies, are tender, sweet, and chocolaty.

These cookies and cream muffins are a tasty excuse for having cookies for breakfast. Just hide the cookies in these muffins. 

Each muffin contains about the equivalent of one and a half Oreos, which, in the grand scheme of things, is just perfect for breakfast, right? Plus, there are eggs in the batter. Breakfast!

You can also serve these muffins for snack, afternoon tea, or even dessert with a little Cookies and Cream ice cream. 

Ingredients in these Muffins:

All purpose or cake flour. I used all purpose flour and the muffins were still very tender. 

Sugar. I used granulated sugar, but you can substitute brown sugar for a more cookie-like flavor. 

Milk. You can use whole, low fat, or nonfat milk. 

Vegetable or canola oil for the muffins plus butter for the streusel. 

Pantry ingredients include salt, baking powder, and vanilla extract. 

Room temperature eggs. 

Mini chocolate chips. You could also use standard-sized chocolate chips. 

Oreos. You will need a total of about 21 Oreos, some for grinding and adding to the flour, some for chopping and adding to the batter, and some for the streusel. Don't worry. There will still be some left in the package for snacking.

First make the streusel and refrigerate it briefly while you pull together the muffin batter. 

To make the muffins, first pulverize 53 grams of Oreos (about 4 3/4 cookies) and combine the crumbs with the flour in a bowl. Add the sugar, salt, and baking powder and whisk. Whisk in the chocolate chips. 

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients. Gently stir everything together and then fold in crushed Oreo cookies. The pieces should be about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in size. 

The batter will seem thin, but rest assured, the whole thing comes together. 

Once you've portioned the batter into the muffin tin, sprinkle the tops with some of the streusel and bake. They should take about 15 to 18 minutes to bake.

Equipment You May Need:

Twelve cavity muffin tin.

Paper muffin tin liners

Mini or standard food processor for pulverizing some of the Oreos to add to the flour. I used my favorite mini food processor. It's so much easier to clean and is great for small jobs. 

Pastry cutter: While this tool is optional, it's great for cutting cold butter into the Oreos, flour, and sugar for the streusel. 

Recipe Variations:

If you want your muffins to be even more decadent, you can use Double Stuff Oreos. 

If you don't want to bother with the streusel, you could also just top the muffins with some crushed cookies. 

You could also take advantage of the different flavors of Oreos available. For example, you could use mint Oreos and add mint chips to the muffins. Or, you could use chocolate creme filled Oreos and add a half cup of cocoa powder to the batter. 


These muffins will keep at room temperature in an airtight container for up to four days. You can also individually wrap them and freeze them for up to three months. 

These muffins can be re-warmed by microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds.
