Today was a cookie exchange at work. Did I make my cookies and take them in? Ummm :::kicking dirt with toe::: nope, I sure didn't. Do I have a good defense for not taking them? Wellllllll ... no. I just didn't make them. There were 11 of us exchanging cookies, so I did get 10 bags of 3 cookies each. No, make that 8 bags of 3 cookies each, 1 bag of 3 small muffins, and 1 bag of 5 very small, but very tasty orange cookies. :)
So I decided to make muffins for breakfast for the cookie exchange group instead. Tomorrow morning, I'll be taking Cinnacrunch Muffins on page 19 of the American Vegan Kitchen cookbook. I decided to make these late. I made the Crunch topping around 8:30 PM. That means it finished baking at 8:45 PM. Since it had to sit for 2 hours and cool (harden), that means I just now put my muffins in the oven at 11 PM.
I followed the recipe exactly, and I thought that the ingredients would be exact, but I found that I have a cup and a half or so of leftover crunch. The recipe states it will keep for up to two weeks if kept airtight, which it is. I don't have enough to make another batch of muffins, but I do have enough to sprinkle on oatmeal or use on a baked apple. I seriously doubt that anyone at the office will even suspect that the muffins are vegan. I read on someone's blog that these are the muffins you take to work when people at work are giving you grief about what you eat [as a vegan]. I believe it. :::chuckle:::
