Baking Break

It feels like Saturday in November.

It’s 43 degrees out, and I went to a bar last night.  That does not scream May in the middle of study week.  But don’t go thinking I’m some sort of hoodlum.  I managed to write a full draft of a 15 page paper on urban gardens and get through a poster session.  A gin and tonic or two was earned.

This morning, while I edited my paper and waited for the gym to open (1pm, seriously?), I decided baking was in order.  After all, what makes a cold study day better than a warm muffin?

Apple Muffins

1/2 cup almond butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour milk (or probably regular milk, juice, water, etc)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (unless your AB is salted)
3 small apples, peeled, cored and diced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine wet ingredients, add dry ingredients (minus apples) and combine.  Fold in apples.  Fill lined or greased muffin tin (almost full) and bake 20-22 minutes. Allow to cool and then give them away to all your studying (or hung over) friends!

Anyhoo… hope you’re all having a fantastic week.  Back to paper editing and studying!

    Love the muffins – and the fact that they use 1/2 cup of almond butter! Definitely a more unique muffin recipe, definitely saving this one 🙂
    And I agree – it has been TOO COLD lately!! I hear it’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend, though – hopefully for you, too!

    I think finals week is when you need a little bar trip most of all! If I didn’t take good breaks like that, I’d have a whole lot of low-quality school work on my hands.

    Before I discovered food blogs, I felt alone in craving baking like some people crave cigarettes. And then I discovered I was not alooooone!

    If you brought me muffins that yummy, I’d have to reward you with skirts in return! Those look amazing… I might be trying them with peanut butter (allergic to almonds) tomorrow as a Saturday treat.

    Those look amazing! Muffins are good hangover food, haha! I’ll definitely be making these 🙂

    What camera do you use? I’m in the market for a new one and your photos are STUNNING!
