Neapolitan Ice Cream Muffins
Muffins are a big breakfast favorite in our house. The guys all love them because they’re delicious, I like them because they can easily be made ahead of time, perfect for busy mornings! These Neapolitan Ice Cream Muffins are an excellent treat now that we live in Texas, because it gets very hot here. An added bonus is that local grocery stores have been offering great sale prices on ice cream, so I’ve been stocking the freezer. With three teenage boys, who are all athletes, they have very hearty appetites, so stocking up on sale items is essential to keep the budget on track.
Neapolitan Ice Cream Muffins Ingredients
I’ve been working on a few different items that are different, innovative ways to use up the ice cream – in addition to the traditional scoops, sundaes, milkshakes, etc. and I am excited to share today this recipe for Neapolitan Ice Cream Muffins. Later this month, I’ll be sharing another for Butter Pecan Ice Cream Muffins, and then Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Muffins.

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Next, you can line a muffin tin or grease it. In a food processor or blender, add oats and blend. In a large bowl, sift together the oat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, add ice cream, butter, and egg and mix together. Add the flour mixture to the ice cream mixture and mix until just combined. Separate batter equally into 3 separate bowls. In one of the bowls mix in the cocoa powder, in the second mix in the jam, and in the third mix in the vanilla.
Add each of the batter colors into a piping bag or sandwich bag, and pipe into muffin tins simultaneously.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool outside of the tin.
