33 degree Oatmeal Muffins
This is not very feminine of me, but I’m sweating. I sweat all day.
I shower in the morning, then I sweat.
sweat shower after dinner, then I shower sweat.
Whatever. Same thing. It’s freakin hot and I still made muffins.
2 cups nonfat plain yogurt
2 cups quick oats
1 egg and 2 egg whites
1/2 cup olive or coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white sugar or sugar substitute
1 tbsp baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine yogurt and oats in a large bowl and let sit for 15 minutes.
Into the same bowl add the eggs, oil and vanilla. Blend well.
Add dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Now you can add just about anything to this muffin mix or…..nothing at all!
Pour into muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned and cooked through the center or just leave on the balcony for 5 minutes. Be careful not to burn them.
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots and 1/4 cup almonds.
1/4 cup raisins and 1/4 cup walnuts
You could even make these muffins savory by adding 1/2 cup grated cheese, 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1 tsp dried oregano but skip the vanilla and cinnamon.
I add 1/2 a square of 70% Lindt chocolate right in the middle of each muffin
I need a shower.
All this typing is making me sweat.
