I’ve been baking alot recently. Boredom is really bad for my coworkers & parents because, heaven knows, those treats will not stay in this house. I definitely don’t need the temptation with California calling in a few months!
Useful tip: Keep the weights and kettlebells in view. Keep the baked goods out of sight!
Did you think I was kidding? I’ve loved having these on hand to do a quick 20-40 minute Exercise TV workout to start my day. I’ve been trying to find the motivation to also work out in the evenings, but I really hate dealing with the after-work crowds (and accompanying body heat) at the gym. Guess I’ve really got to get back into my 4:30am routine..
Back to the good stuff..
Chunky Apple Muffins
(adapted from King Arthur Flour)1 C whole wheat flour 1 C all purpose flour 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1 Tbsp cinnamon 1/2 C butter, softened 1/2 C sugar 1/2 C light brown sugar, divided 1 egg, slightly beaten 1 C buttermilk 1 large or 2 small apples, peeled and chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a 12-cup muffin tin with greased papers.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until you get a clean toothpick. Cool on a rack and enjoy!
These, according to the taste buds of myself and my mom, are the best apple muffins I have ever eaten! I absolutely loved the texture of the apples after baking.
Mom’s taste buds got 95% of them and my weights only lost about 5% of my attention for the morning. A girl’s gotta take a break on occasion!
