I'm a bit preoccupied and doing things mainly for distraction. Hopefully I can update in a few days with a clear mind.
In the meantime here's something I am hoping to make today: Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins. I'm not particularly domestic and don't usually spend a lot of time researching new recipes, making Pinterest boards, etc. But a couple of months ago I started making these muffins for Mr. Turtle to freeze for breakfast at work. And they are so yummy! I think they are fairly healthy too. Muffins are hit or miss for me but these are always fluffy, moist and full of flavour. I make double batches and help Mr. Turtle eat them. AJ also likes to have bites too.
Here's the recipehttp://cookieandkate.com/2014/healthy-maple-pumpkin-muffins/
- I haven't been able to find plain pumpkin puree so I use a can of pumpkin pie filling. Not as healthy I'm sure but it works. I skip the salt,spices and vanilla extract, but I do add the honey or maple syrup.
- I toss in a couple of tablespoons of flaxseed meal. Can't taste it but it makes it a bit healthier.
