I know it’s hard to believe after all the time I’ve spent whining about exams online but:
I’M FINALLY FREE!!!!!
Which means it’s time to fill this blog with sweet treats again and spam your feeds with pictures of cake. Who’s excited? I’m excited. Especially for all that chocolate cake coming my way, you know.
But for now, it’s muffins we’re talking about. Fluffy, tasty, wholesome apple chia oat muffins to be exact. In other words: heaven (but a very nutritious one!)
You might remember these babies from previous Instagram posts of mine in which I probably told you that the recipe would be up in a couple of days ha hA HAHAHAHA #examlife. Anyway, a month or so later, here we go. Next stop: muffin heaven!
These muffins are definitely lighter and dare I say healthier than most muffins out there. Not that I have anything about delicious sinful muffins you know, they’re like my family or something. I love them!!! But I still think it’s nice to have a recipe for more wholesome, filling ones.
You wouldn’t tell that these muffins are actually low fat (but packed with healthier ones #yes #winningonlife) since the texture is out-of-this-world good. Using grated apple makes them moist and fluffy, unlike most bran muffins I’ve ever come across. Are they muffins or are they rocks, we’ll never know.
Then we have some chia seeds, which work wonders when it comes to subbing eggs in vegan recipe. And they’re packed with lots of nutrients, vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids too! How cool is that?
Then there’s oats, which means these are totally and I mean totally breakfast material. So heck yes, go ahead and enjoy three (dozens) of them for breakfast.
