Muffins have been on my mind (a pretty common occurrence), so these.....
are in my oven right now! I was in the mood for a muffins with oats in it....I have a thing with oats, and sometimes I just want something with oats in it....plus these use applesauce which I had been wanting to try out in recipes. I don't really have any love of raisins though, plus, I didn't have any, so they got left out, but hopefully they turn out good. :)
Ok, here are mine!
I definitely think I'll be making these again, just with some adjustments to see if I can improve the slight bitter taste, so I'll keep you all updated on those efforts.
Oh, and the girls just grabbed themselves some and I haven't heard any complaints yet from them, so I guess they're passable from the kid perspective. :)
I think they'll go well with my smoothie.
And yes, my smoothie contains oats too. :) So yummy with oats, although you can't hardly tell they're in there. My smoothie usually contains:
-a little milk (I don't use too much because I like my smoothie to be a little thick to were I can eat it with a spoon)
-ground flax seed
Then I blend it all up and that's my lunch about half the time! The girls love it too, which I can't complain about, because they're getting lots of nutrition that way.
Of course, you can vary it however you want, but I like it this way....for two days I didn't have pineapples, so I had to use blueberries, and it was just not the same. Although blueberries are probably better for you then pineapples, I like my pineapple and strawberry blend the best. :)
Now it's time to go have one!
****Update: as a warning, these muffins definitely don't get better with time! I will let you know if I can make some improvements on them.
