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!
