Yesterday was cold. It was bitter. So cold I decided not to take my sort of sickly child outside. Those who know me know that I strongly dislike staying home all day. I always need somewhere to “go”. Since I couldn’t go anywhere, I baked. Baking is much more productive than just hovering over the heating vent in your house.
I made two things, an easy loaf of bread in the bread machine & Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins adapted from this recipe.
Commence Blueberry Muffin Photos!!!!!
I didn’t have any yogurt that wasn’t expired so I subbed applesauce & 1/4 cup of almond milk. I also didn’t have canola oil so I used coconut oil. I also broke my arm (Not really) so I had to force my child into child labor by forcing her to stir the batter (Not really, what really happens is she cries until I let her, full steam crying y’all). That’s her little meat claw in the picture below.
I used Trader Joe’s wild blueberries because that’s what I had. In retrospect, they are the perfect size.
Whoops, forgot to tell you I added some sweetened coconut to the top to sweeten the deal. HA, I’m hilarious to myself.
It was a great recipe! I will definitely make it again. If you are looking for a hearty blueberry muffin it whips up really quickly and the oats give it a really nice texture. Penn really enjoyed them. (recipe below & in link above)
Stay warm! (I’m currently under a blanket with two cats on my lap– they are going to eat this laptop I fear).
