I have found that old habits are hard to break.
Such as, late in the evening I tend to want to throw some quick muffins or cookies into the oven. Before my diagnosis, I could just throw something quick together and within 20 minutes-there would be fresh baking. Now that I am gluten free. Baking is more complicated. I have accepted that, but still sometimes, I want to be able to throw something quickly together.
So, I have been experimenting with gluten free mixes. I want to be able to throw something together quickly and have a great result.
Last night, around 8:30pm I felt like baking.
I did not want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen-just wanted to whip up some quick yummies for the next day.
My sister had brought over a couple of boxed mixes the last time she was over for me to try. So I did! The instructions were very simple-and when mixing they actually looked like regular muffins.
I added mixed nuts, raisins, goji berries and some dark chocolate chips. The result was quite satisfying.
In fact, I took all the muffins to my exercise class this morning and everyone really liked them. I was happy! I will keep some of these boxes on hand now for my next late night baking craving.
Next time though, I will add frozen blueberries-I think that would taste great!
