Booze and Baking
There are occasionally times in life when baking and beer drinking trumps a workout. Balance is the key to life after all. 🙂
I knew my workout was in jeopardy when it kept getting pushed back later and later in the day. And then there was the mandatory business lunch. 😉
Technically there was time for both a workout and muffin making but sometimes you must seize the moment when the inspiration hits you.
So I baked. And drank. Not to drink a cold beer on a 75* Friday afternoon in February seemed wrong.
These muffins were born out of a yogurt flop. A few days ago I attempted to make a chai spice yogurt by throwing some chai tea bags, spices, and stevia into the milk as it heated. I used my trusty yogurt maker but the results were…
laughable drinkable. Not the way I like my yogurt.
Into the batter it went. Sadly, this yogurt must be cursed because the muffins didn’t turn out great either. 🙁
Too dry and, gasp, a little too much cardamom. (I love cardamom so I wasn’t sure that was possible)
These babies are a different story though
Peanut Butter Stuffed Banana Bran
Whole wheat, banana sweetened goodness. ♥
They are stuffed with a little blob of whipped banana peanut butter, a mini stroke of genius on my part if I do say so myself. I will share the details soon, promise.
Four dozen muffins, check. I think we’re ready!
The best part of skipping yesterday’s workout?
I am SO looking forward to my run this morning!
It’s going to be grand.
