By mid week, I’m usually bored with my work snacks or sweets and am looking for something new to bring the remainder of the week. Today was no different. I was out of the honey oatmeal cookies I made this weekend, and knew if I didnt make something, I’d be into the oreos someone brought at work tomorrow and Friday. (not like I still wont eat them, I’m just hoping I’ll eat less)
Anyway, what to make was the big dilemma. I wanted to use this AMAZING honey I got from the farmers market at the Bull City Farm stand. I bought it previously in a smaller container not sure how much I’d use, and because it was so good, I put it on almost everything and it was gone in no time. When I saw the vendor was back with more natural/local honey, I went with the medium sized jar. YUMMO.
I also wanted to use the blueberries I picked this weekend in whatever I made. Then I struck pinterest gold. I found this muffin recipe that seemed to fulfill all of my wants. I liked that it also had some protein with the quinoa and oatmeal. Done deal.
I followed the recipe minus using the flax/chia seeds. I also substituted honey for the sugar and used almond milk as suggested.
The muffins turned out UBER delicious minus the fact that I didnt spray the muffin tins and they stuck a bit. I filled them pretty high because the recipe said they didnt rise and I was too lazy too put in another tray. (just being honest)
An easy option for a basic and healthy muffin!
