Meal in a muffin

I love muffins, expecially those that are made of the good for you ingreadients. I got this recipe for full meal muffins from Jen's veganlunchbox site . Here is the link. Sorry the picture is not great, but the taste is awesome. I was so excited to get home from work and make those muffins. Got home, started getting all the ingredients out and low and behold no barley flour. Time was short so I did not have time to grind some barley into flour so I improvised. Here are the substitutions I made and the muffins turned out so moist and yummy. I used 1/2 cup of quinoa flour, 1/4 cup amaranth flour, and 1/4 cup of whole wheat pastry flour instead of the barley flour. I also used 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce in place of the apple juice. The currants are optional, but we love them so they went in too. Even with the substitutions they turned out wonderful. Thanks, Jen! I have these with a piece of fruit for breakfast. Oh and they freezed nicely.

I went to download the picture of the muffins and this picture of one of our fur kids. I guess DH took this picture so I just had to share it. Well it was DD that took the picture. Tilly is our 11 year old calico. She is such a good kid. You can see just a tiy bit of Kelli our other calico.

I love that picture of Tilly, it's so great when they sleep with the paws over their eyes.

Was just reading your previous post about your no knead bread- it came out beautifully, quite impressive.

Hope you are out of your rut and the back is better- if not, then I say more cuddling with the kitties!

Thank you for your comment- am feeling much better today, must be the corn in soup & cookie cure.

What happy cats... sleeping animals are always fun to take pics of..

Sorry about your crappy cook day.. It happens to all of us.. I certainly have had some myself... and they are soo annoying. It is the best just to STOP and go on the next day.

The sleepy kitties are so cute!

Hey Veg-a-Nut!
I just read your comment on Two Vegan Sisters about your raw food friend who's having teeth problems. I've read that those problems are usually related to not getting enought Vitamin D and Calcium. If she's not getting these in her diet, she might want to consider supplements, esp for the Vit D. I don't know if this will be helpful or not... but I thought it was worth mentioning.
