All stocked up

Its funny how most people stock up for their trip by buying things for themselves to prepare for the journey ahead. I stocked up my mom today for my Quebec trip. With baked goods. Specifically banana bread and muffins.

They are now all chilling (hehe) in the freezer until she deems fit to pull them out, defrost them, and proceed to devour them without me around.

She sweetly asked me last night, around this time, of how she will have to manage with me going away. Not with regards to how much she’ll miss her one and only offspring. But rather that I won’t be here to bake healthy breads and healthy goodies any more.

Isn’t she sweet? Haha, I kid of course. But still. It hit me. I was leaving her stranded here! So of course, this morning after my workout. I squatted my butt in the kitchen and baked for about 2-3 hours and got everything done! Cooled it for the rest of the day, and just popped them in the freezer not too long ago.

We’re all good here now.

All hail the oat.

Oaty oaty oaty!

Lookie what I made!

When I got home tonight I had the itching to bake. So what’s a girl to do?

I scratched it!

I scratched it pretty hard. With some Cinnamon & Raisin Oatmeal Muffins.

I used:

  • 1 cup of rolled oats (which I ground up slightly in a food processor)
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (Probably? Didn’t measure because I love cinnamon)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup raisins (soaked in hot water, prior)
  • 1 rounded tbsp applesauce
  • 1 cup of buttermilk (almost 1 cup of almond milk mixed with 1 tbsp vinegar)

I just mixed the dry well, and incorporated the wet! Scooped into a oiled muffin pan, shoved it in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 18-20 minutes. Et viola!

Sadly mom got to one before I could take a picture. Poor muffin, never got its 15 seconds of fame.

Bon appetite mes amis.
