Why We Love These Oreo Muffins

The cookies in these cupcakes don't sink, so they're light and fluffy. And, speaking of cookies, they're stuffed with Oreos. The amount of Oreo cookies in these cupcakes is just right without being overbearing.

Plus, the buttercream frosting is silky smooth and creamy, just like Oreo creme! In terms of appearance and flavor, they're basically Oreos in a cupcake form! They're also quite simple to make and decorate.


Oreo Muffin Recipe




  • 250 g all-purpose flour
  • caster sugar (200 g)
  • 10 Oreo cookies, smashed. A rolling pin can be used to do this. Crush till the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch salt
  • 200 g plain yogurt
  • 120 ml whole milk
  • 120 ml vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract




1) Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan.

2) Combine flour, caster sugar, crushed Oreos, cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda(baking soda), and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Set aside the flour mixture.

3) In a separate bowl, combine plain yogurt, whole milk, vegetable oil, 1 egg, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence. Whisk together until smooth.

4) Toss in half of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined. Combine the remaining dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure that all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Do not overmix.

5) Fill the muffin tins or muffin cups three-quarters full with the muffin batter.

6) Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcake comes out clean.

7) Take the cupcakes out of the oven and set them to cool on a cooling rack.




1) You can use greek yogurt, sour cream, or creme fraiche instead of plain yogurt.

2) In place of the egg, you can use applesauce, mashed banana, or flaxseed combined with a little water.

3) If you don't have caster/fine sugar, you can use granulated sugar.


Frosting Recipe




  • 1 ½ cups unsalted butter
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 cup Oreo crumbs finely processed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract




1) Add the butter to a stand mixer and mix for 30 seconds on medium speed, or until light and fluffy.

2) Add the powdered sugar and milk in batches until all of the powdered sugar and milk have been added.

3) Fold in the Oreo crumbs and vanilla extract gently until just incorporated.


Assemble the Cupcakes

Frosting: Using a pastry bag, pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes. You can use Ateco tip 844. You don't have to use the same exact piping tip, but you should absolutely use one with a wider aperture since there are cookie crumbs in the frosting.

Garnish:Garnish with half an Oreo biscuit and some Oreo crumbs on top of the cupcakes.


How To Store Oreo Muffins

1) Oreo Cupcakes Stored Outside


Oreo Muffins without frosting can be kept outside at room temperature for up to 3 days if kept covered and stored in a cool, dry location.


2) Refrigerating Oreo Cupcakes


If refrigerating, store cupcakes in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. They will survive 3-4 days if frosted.


3) Freezing Oreo Cupcakes


If freezing, store in a sealed container without frosting. They have a three-month shelf life. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before storing; if layering, use parchment paper between layers.

Remove them from the freezer and allow them to defrost at room temperature for 3-4 hours before eating. Microwave them for 30 seconds at a time or wrap them in tin foil and bake them for 10-15 minutes in the oven.


Can I Substitute Baking Powder for Soda Bicarbonate?

You can use soda bicarbonate instead of baking powder by doubling the baking powder to soda ratio.


Variations of Chocolate Oreo Muffins

Vanilla Muffins: If you leave out the cocoa powder and use Golden Oreos, you can easily transform this into a vanilla muffin.


Different Oreo Flavors: You can use any of the hundreds of Oreo Cookie flavors you wish. Make a gorgeous Valentine's Day cupcake with Red Velvet Oreo cookies and red food coloring.


Chocolate Chips: For more creamy vanilla bursts, add white chocolate chips, or dark chocolate chips for additional chocolatey pleasure. If you can't make up your mind, go for both!


Cheesecake: Use cheesecake to make Chocolate Oreo Muffins. Combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, egg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence in a blender and blend until smooth. Fill half of the cupcake liners with chocolate cake batter, then top with cream cheese mixture and cake batter.
