Baking up some yumminess!

I went to a family birthday celebration this weekend and I had baked some Oatmeal Molasses Bread for the birthday man. đŸ™‚ He loved it. Which is pretty awesome!


Recipe from Food Coma

Then tonight, I had a bit of an itch. An itch to bake. I turned to my trusty toaster oven and asked him what he would like. He in turn replied “Almond Muffins, please.” (Yes, my oven is very polite.)

So I complied.


Recipe adapted from Elana’s Pantry

And I baked up some Almond & Raisin muffins (without any sweetener added). I’ve been playing with this baking with almond flour business. So far? I’ve been LOVING it. Granted I don’t think I could ever adapt a fully Gluten-Free or Paleo lifestyle. But I feel its beneficial to expand my horizons (especially with food & nutrition) and experiment with new things.

Why not, right? You’ve only got this one life. You gotta make it really count. đŸ˜‰

Something delicious this way comes!

I have this quote in my head. I haven’t read Macbeth since grade 10 or 11. Well… stranger things have happened in my head. Haha.

Guess what I made!

-drumroll-


Granola!

Its sad isn’t it. Granola is ridiculously simple to make and yet this is my first time ever attempting it! Tsk tsk, what a disservice to my belly.

Well redemption was baked today! A little overdone… but redemption nonetheless. It taste scrumdiliumcious!

Note to self: Get a baking sheet.

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.
