Happy Sunday! Another great day here but boy is it HOT! James had today off from work (yay!) so we got so spend some time together which is always wonderful. We had a nice and slow morning before we got down to business:

Homemade Egg McMuffin I also had a half cup of coffee, a little bit of grapefruit juice and lots of water.

Thomas whole wheat English Muffin, Morningstar sausage patty, one scrambled egg, farmers market tomato and nutritional yeast….

…plus a farmers market peach which was ridiculously good. So juicy and perfectly sweet. I could eat these all day!

And some catching up on correspondence (snail mail is not dead people!!). I love goldens ❤

And a little view of James’ plate:

One of sausage egg + cheese and one of just egg + cheese. Those were the last of our Morning Star sausage patties. I don’t see us getting more any time in the near future. Too pricey and too many wacky ingredients. But they were fun to have while they lasted for sure. I love that maple sausage flavor! It reminds me of the Big Breakfast my dad would get me at McDonald’s when we were little. 

All eaten within view of the beautiful flowers we got at the farmer’s market! I had no idea there were so many different  kinds of sunflowers.

Fresh flowers really do brighten up my day. I love it!

After breakfast we loaded up and went apartment hunting. We need to move someplace closer to my law school. I’m going to have to commute for the first month or so but it’s just too far away for any longer then that. Luckily we live close enough that we can do a little bit of hunting each weekend. Today we looked at 4 places. Next weekend we plan on looking in a different area at 4 or 5 too. The perfect place is out there and we’re determined to find it!

When we got home I got my bake on. I ended up creating a muffin recipe which I’ve never done before! It was fun and kind of freeing. WIth baking I always feel like I need to pretty strictly follow a recipe, which I’m not a fan of. With these, I just kind of winged it until I got the desired consistency. I was happy with how they turned out!

Protein Trail Mix Muffins

  • 2 cups oat bran
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsps flax, ground + 6 tbsp water (to replace 2 eggs)
  • 1/2 c. plain NF yogurt
  • 1 smashed banana
  • 1/2 c. applesauce
  • 1 small chopped apple
  • 2 big handfuls trailmix
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • healthy sprinkle of cinnamon 

Preheat oven to 400. Mix dry together. Add wet ingredients. Add mix ins (vary however much you like). Bake for 15 minutes.

I sprinkled some oats on the top but I would advise against that. They just fell off. James was surprised by how much he liked these and I was happy with how they came out. They would be great for a mid morning snack or to have with a smoothie for breakfast. And of course they’re even better with peanut butter on them!

I see some bread baking in my future….See you later!

  2. The flowers are pretty. 😀

    My oats always fall off the top as well. I think you need to do an egg wash to keep them on.

  3. […] I got back I got to work on some more of my protein muffins, per James’ […]
