Baking in the Oven and Baking Outside
Whew! We’ve had several 90 degree days this week, I’m tempted to fry an egg on the sidewalk!
I had a few friends over to my lake cottage for the 4th of July and of course I had to bake some goodies for them. First, I made Skinny Mini Glo-Buns. Something about cinnamon rolls just sounded so good, and this recipe was quite a healthy re-make. I know you want pictures…
I was very pleased with how they came out and they were really fun to make. I glazed them with a milk+powdered sugar frosting before I served them.
Next up to bat are the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins!
I followed the Sunspire recipe, but used canola oil instead of butter, whole-wheat pastry flour, and reduced the sugar a bit. Here they come…
They came out a bit…bumpy, but smelled delicious! They tasted great, courtesy of the chocolate chips, but the peanut flavor wasn’t as pronounce as I had hoped. When I commented about the peanut butter, one of my friend said “There’s peanut butter in here?”. I just had to laugh!
Another thing I really liked about these recipes is that it did not make a ton, which was perfect for our 8-person party. We still had leftovers though, which was fine with me :)
I hope to update more frequently, post more runs and eats. Right now, I’m having issues with my Garmin. I plugged it into my computer 2 days ago and my Training Center was cleared and it didn’t recognize the user on my Garmin. So if anyone out there knows about this problem, please help!Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
