It’s muffin weather over here! Meaning that the 80/90 degree temps we’ve had over here finally turned into what feels like fall weather. I can stop avoiding the oven and use it to my heart’s desire, and I am so glad.
This afternoon I pulled up a chair to our counter and Eliza and I baked one of my favorite muffin recipes. We also pureed pumpkin that I roasted from the jack-o-lanterns that our kids carved, so pumpkin muffins are in our near and distant future.
One of my favorite things about muffins are how easy they make school morning breakfasts. The mornings have been so dark the last few weeks especially, and it’s been so hard getting the kids awake and out the door, muffins can be started on a plate but then so easily brought in a little bowl to-go. That’s how we’ve had to do it most days lately. Ideally we have hardboiled eggs and fruit on the side, but if not, I’m very content with just a muffin and a hot cup of tea.
I thought I’d share a few links to my favorite banana muffins and a few other fall muffins and breads that I have bookmarked. I should also add that we regularly add chopped walnuts (toasted if you have the extra few minutes), raisins, and chocolate chips to the batter. Chocolate makes everything better.
