So, when I posted last night, I thought that my baking for the weekend was over! I was SO wrong. After sitting in a classroom for the last 2 days, I guess I needed some expression of creativity! I cranked the tunes, pulled out the cook books and got down to work!
Pumpkin Oat Muffins adapted from http://sweetandnatural.wordpress.com/2009/10/07/pumpkin-banana-oat-muffins
1 can pumpkin (not the pie filling, we're talking straight up pumpkin)
1 cup of applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup flax meal
2/3 cup agave nectar
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup Rogers Porridge Mix (or oats of any type is fine, this is just what I had)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon (also added nutmeg and cloves)
Mix all of your wet ingredients together (I am sure you know the difference between wet and dry). Then, mix all of your dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones. Mix until blended. Add a cup of chocolate chips to dress it up if you like!
Bake at 375F for approximately 17 - 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean!
