You know those kind of days when you stay in your pajamas until noon? Those lazy days when all you want to do is read a book or listen to a good record? We had one of days last week, and it was perfect! We were too busy being lazy to realize we were getting hungry, it kind of snuck up on us… but instead of reaching for the box of cereal I decided to whip up a batch of our favorite 30-minute bran muffins. This recipe comes from Heidi Swanson’s latest cookbook Super Natural Everyday.
I honestly love being in the kitchen, especially when I have some extra time on my hands. Baking is probably my favorite. While baking doesn’t leave as much room for alterations (i.e. better stick to the recipe for flour and sugar measurements if you want things to turn out right) you can aways spice things up! In this recipe of bran muffins I added some coconut and oats, which we loved. Next time maybe some dried cherries and pecans?? It was an easy and delightful breakfast for two. Beto and I enjoyed sipping our coffee, slathering our muffins with butter and homemade peach preserves from last summer’s bounty, and spending time together. It doesn’t get much better than that… well, maybe if you stopped by to join us! :)
