I have been severely slacking in the baking department the past few months. I try to limit the amount my oven is on in the summer, plus I have no will power so even though I may say I am making treats for my boys there is no way I can walk past a plate of cookies or cake with out breaking off a piece and I just did not need that kind of temptation. This week I decided it was time to try out some new recipes. I had some peaches around and I was afraid they were going to go bad so I decided to look up a peach muffin recipe. I stumbled upon this Roasted Peach Muffin with Cinnamon Streusel recipe over at Healthy. Delicious. I gave it a try with a few modifications and the muffins came out delicious!
I swapped out 1 cup of the all purpose flour for 1 cup of whole wheat flour (not for nutritious value but because I was lazy and I ran out of the all purpose flour) and I switched the quantity of the brown sugar and white sugar in the topping. This also was not premeditated. I read the recipe wrong and figured how bad could it be! I also added more cinnamon to my topping just because I like it!
These muffins were kid approved....my 2 1/2 year old said "Dese muffins are dood..Hanks Ma"
Since the oven was on, I decided to make a quick treat for the hubby. I went on my Pinterest recipe board and came across this quick and easy cake cookie recipe from ImaLazymom. These could not have been easier to make and perfect for when you have a little helper. I added a TBSP of water and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract to the batter. They got the thumbs up from the hubby. He just brought a plate of them of them with him to watch football with the guys. (Again, I can NOT have this stuff in the house.) I would totally recommend these if you need a quick dessert to bring to someones house or a something for the kids.
