Baking Makes It Better

I felt like I was spinning my wheels at work today, going in circles, redoing work I’ve already done. I was happy to have my yoga practice tonight, but sad that I didn’t make it home from work in time to bake muffins for our last class. We had tea afterwards, and people had mentioned bringing snacks. Class was great, as usual. I’m sad that it was the last week, but excited to start the intro to power class in a few weeks. Afterwards we had delicious tea and watermelon. When I got home, I decided to bake the muffins anyway. They don’t look quite as nice as last time, but I think that’s because I used whole wheat flour this time. Even though they looked different, they were just as delicious!

  1. Those look delicious! I am jealous of anyone who can bake muffins. I’m a notoriously bad baker, and muffins are the hardest for me. They usually come out hard as rocks! I’ll have to give this recipe a try…

    Haha, you should probably try it with white flour then. The whole wheat flour made them much more dense and prone to being hard as a rock if you have bad baking luck.
