Today started off with a cooling bowl of cereal
- Life cereal
- unsweetened almond milk
- ground flax seeds
Plus coffee 🙂 Delish!
Rewinding to the other night, I was in a baking kind of mood and decided the people I work with (and James) could benefit from that!
When I got him, I knew his destiny was going to be in a baked good. His twin is still in the freezer awaiting a similar fate 🙂
Other modifications: halved the amount of sugar, used apple sauce instead of oil, added crushed peanuts (so they would still have the same peanut butter/chocolate feel to them!), almond milk instead of soy milk.
They turned out great! They baked a little longer, maybe 28 minutes?
Sorry for the not so great pictures. Our apartment has terrible lighting.
I think the combo of chocolate and peanuts is to die for. I first tried this combo when I had a Sugar Mommas Cookie in Asheville (which, by the way, makes the best cookies ever. Really…if you have taste buds, and are ever in Asheville, you NEED to get a cookie there!).
These muffins were so moist. It felt like eating such a decadent treat. Especially with the slivers of chocolate bunnies..it was like they were swirled with melted chocolate. My co workers loved these and even asked for the recipe! I don’t think they believed me when I told them there was nothing bad in there. Don’t ya love that??
Fun Weekend To Dos:
- Long Walk With Toby
- Meal Plan
- Grocery shop
- Manicure and Pedicure (James got me a gift certificate! woooo!\ Hello sandal weather!)
- PT Exercises (okay so I’m trying to look at them as fun..but let’s be real)
- Work out
Also on my agenda:
This book is SO GOOD! Oh man. I was in quite a book rut for a while but after reading The Glass Castle (fantastic!) and now this one, I think I’m out of it. I can’t put this book down. It’s about a crime committed on an Amish farm and a lawyer from outside the community has to go live on the farm to defend the accused girl. The set up seems a little unlikely but the writing is wonderful and you just get completely sucked in. Love it!
What book are you reading now?? I feel like I need to get in all the pleasure reading I can before law school!!
