7 Grain Muffins

Goooood morning afternoon! I was actually up at a reasonable hour today because I had a 10:00 am phone interview. I enjoyed a cup of chai tea while prepping for the phone call, which ended up going very well! 🙂

I wasn’t too hungry yet, and I was bored…so I decided to bake my breakfast! My inspiration was my new Bob’s Red Mill 7 Grain cereal. I bought it on my last shopping trip, and was dying to use it, but wasn’t in the mood for hot cereal. There happened to be a nice little recipe on the side for muffins, which I modified a bit.

After mixing the ingredients, I had a nice thick batter:

thick, oat-y batter

I poured the batter into muffin tins, and ended up making 18 pretty large muffins! The result was my muffin army:

army of muffins!

They turned out so well! I enjoyed one for breakfast, with a sliced kiwi on the side. Very filling, very delicious! After letting my roommates sample a few, I froze the remaining muffins.

I had to run some errands this morning, one of which was getting my passport picture taken! I’m so excited to FINALLY be getting my passport. Woohoo!

When I got home I had a few pretzels dipped in roasted garlic hummus, which we are kind of fans of in my house:

hummus overkill

Haha. You can never have too much hummus, apparently! Now I’m off to total body! Can’t wait for those endorphins to kick in today! 🙂
