yesterday was so tiring. i woke up at 5:45, chugged a bunch of coffee, had a bowl of power-oatmeal, then went and took the SAT. i think i did pretty well, and this time i left my phone in the car so the alarm would NOT go off. after it was over and i came home i proceeded to fry my brain with lots of hulu-watching to try to recover from all the mental strain from the morning, ha.
later i went out to eat (no food pics, sorry) with a few friends and roamed around denton.
our little alien friend :)
onto the food!
i've been wanting to make pb & j muffins for a loooong time. so last night when i was lurking around vegweb i found this recipe and tweaked it a bit. the jam in the middle definitely makes the muffin, in my opinion.
pb & j muffins
adapted from vegweb
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup quick oats
3/4 cup vanilla almond milk or other milk sub
1 ener-G egg
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
your favorite flavor of jam
preheat oven to 400 F.
mix together whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, and oats in a large bowl.
in a smaller bowl prepare "egg" then mix in peanut butter, almond milk, and maple syrup.
pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir til moistened.
spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray. for each muffin, drop in a tbsp of batter, then about a tsp of jam, then another tbsp of batter on top.
bake for about 15 minutes--use the toothpick test.
by the way, for those of you who might have noticed how much i post about baked goods and
might be wondering whether i actually eat them every day: yes. yes i do. :)
*edited because i just realized i didn't even put up the muffin photos? i think i need sleep.
