Carrot Quinoa Muffins

The other day before work, I picked up a quinoa muffin from Grand Central Station. It looked dry but figured I would give it a shot. It was like tasting a cotton ball.

Tastes like PB Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bread

I have been experimenting lately with the toasted soy spread. I am fascinated by the fact that I can't tell the difference between that spread and peanut butter. I was in the mood the other day to make a hearty oatmeal bread. I decided to make this bread and its sweet and satisfying. Its great by itself or toasted with jelly (for a PB & J feel) … [Read more...]
