Muffin Mourning

November 11, 2009 at 10:25 AM 3 comments

Hello. I slept in a bit longer this morning because it’s a holiday, so I was especially ready for breakfast this a.m. I am hungry in the morning 98% of the time : ) This last weekend I made a batch of muffins from a beautiful recipe book I received last Christmas from my brother. I like to bake muffins and store them in the freezer for “on the run” breakfasts. I just pop 1 or 2 in the microwave, and can enjoy a warm, homemade muffin in seconds. The original recipe is Honey Oat Apple, but I made a couple changes by using agave nectar instead of honey, and adding chopped walnuts for some extra crunch. I also had a steaming cup of (decaffeinated) green tea – a new addiction.

I hope you are all enjoying a day of rest.

    Tell us something about agave nectar. I see it everywhere, but have been out of the loop on its nutritional value.

    And, I am sure our Phoebe would have enjoyed the muffin crumbs that might have fallen her way.

      Agave nectar is a natural sweetener, most commonly made from the Blue Agave plant. It has a lower Glycemic Index than other sweeteners. A lower GI means that carbohydrates are broken down more slowly, releasing glucose more gradually into the bloodstream.

        Okey dokey. It’s going to be on our shopping list. Thanks.
