What happened to my second Tasmania post? Oh that’s right. I got sick of editing pictures. Woops. OK well… SURPRISE POST… at some point in the next year! Get ready. brace yourselves. it could come at any moment.
But for now, I’m organizing life. Filling in forms, photocopying every piece of identification that I have and cleaning my apartment like a woman possessed.
I’m also making bowls of cereal and pouring in vegetable stock instead of oat milk. it’s my life ya know? unedited.
I made things last week! I made pie! Apple pie! but I made it with butter as it was my boyfriends birthday and a crust made of vegan margarine is really nothing to brag about. Also Australia seems to be against vegetable shortening. Where is my CRISCO!?
I also made muffins! Apple ones. Kinda like mini apple cakes. I think I’m on an apple kick.
Apples, cinnamon, brown sugar. what could be better?
Apple Crisp Muffins!
a recipe adapted from Happy Herbivore
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. rolled oats
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. raw sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar (not packed)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
sprinkle of salt
1 c. homemade apple sauce!* (the best kind)
1 c. of diced apple
1/4 c. maple syrup
*To make the apple sauce, peel and chop two apples. Place apple in a saucepan with a tiny bit of water on the bottom of the pan. Cover and let the water boil and steam the apples. When the apple are good and tender (can be smushed with a spoon or fork) Drain any remaining liquid and add a dash of cinnamon. Blend the mixture in a food processor or with a stick blender until smooth. Taste and add more cinnamon if desired.
Mix the dry ingredients and preheat the oven to 350*F. Line a muffin tin with papers, or lightly grease with margarine.
Add applesauce, sugars, and maple syrup to dry mixture and mix until almost combined. Then add the diced apple and mix until everything is just combined. Spoon mixture into muffin liners, about 3/4 way full. Sprinkle some oats on top.
Bake for about 20 minutes.
Enjoy muffins! Organize your life! Pour Vegetable stock on your cereal!
