Brown Sugar Oat Muffins

We are huge muffin fans in this house, but my guys tend to like the same variety over and over again. I marked this recipe for Brown Sugar Oat Muffins to try back when my husband went through a brief phase of wanting to eat oatmeal from scratch, and had bought 2 giant canisters of oats.  They've been complaining about the lack of baked goods in the house, so I pulled out the recipe this weekend.

Just a few minor changes to this one.  I used whole milk instead of 2%, it's what we had on hand this week.  I used caramel extract instead of vanilla. I scooped the first 6 muffins, and then I added blueberries from our bushes to the second half of the batter.  I got 10 muffins, but I fill the cup the whole way instead of 2/3rds.

Mine did take about 3 or 4 minutes longer to bake due to them being more full.  No big deal.  I taste-tested half of each kind, with blueberries and without.  Both were awesome. I really think you could add any fruit you like, or even mini chocolate chips. It made for a perfect breakfast out on the patio. Thank you so much to Regina S. for sharing her recipe!

    Ooooh, loving the addition of oats, Jolene! And I am jealous that you have your own blueberry bushes!
    They look delicious. I"ll have one with blueberries please.

    I had to do something with them, they were taking up valuable cabinet space when hubby abandoned his "eat healthier" phase :)

    I'm very lucky! My grandmother had almost 150 bushes, my dad took 14 to his house when they built it. He gave me 4 of those for our new home this spring :) Small yield this year, but still pretty awesome to walk in my yard and pick a handful!

    I'll put on the coffee, come on over :)

    "blueberries from our bushes..." she casually says. Jealous!! These sound yummy and a great way to use up some of that oatmeal overstock.

    I know it will sound totally greedy, but I wish I had enough to make a whole batch of muffins or a pie LOL But in reality, we moved them at an iffy time, so I'm just happy for what I'm getting :)

    Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

    I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

    Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

    Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

    Lemon Pizzelles

      One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
