Over the weekend I made the purchase of 2 muffin tins and I am officially obsessed. So far I have made Oatmeal-Cranberry muffins, Bran-Blueberry-Cran muffins and Brownie Cupcakes with peanut butter and caramel milk chocolate inside. Today? I’m tackling Pumpkin Raisin muffins (I subbed some WW flour and wheat bran and added raisins and used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I also ditched the oil). My justification for this obsession is that by making the small portions, I can eat just one and it will be a healthy and delicious, not to mention economical (oops, I just mentioned it…), snack or small meal. The problem I’m running into? Eating several of them seems to cancel out all of these best laid plans… Whatever. Those brownies were divine!
No, I have no idea who this person is.
Update: The Pumpkin muffins turned out delightful, if I do say so myself…
