We have all been affected by cancer in one way or another, right? That's why it's so important to do what we can to find a cure, even if it means simply participating in something that will spread the word and make people aware of the cause. That's exactly what we've done for #SundaySupper this week.
The theme is #BakeForACure and I've gotta be honest- baking is not my thing. I've heard that you either love to cook or you love to bake, or that you are typically only really good at one or the other. I want to love and be great at both! This is why I'm excited to see all of the wonderful recipes that everyone is cooking up. Practice makes perfect, right? I'm hoping to try a number of the recipes and bring the love of baking to my home.
Since my baking skills are lacking, I had to have an easy item to prepare. Also, I couldn't come up with an original recipe, that is how little I'm used to baking. Instead, I looked to the side of the package of a food item that I received from a friend: Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain 10 Grain Hot Cereal. This cereal is made with high protein hard red wheat, rye, triticale, oat bran, oats, corn, barley, soy beans, brown rice, millet, and flaxseed.
My foodie friend recommended the muffins as a quick grab and go breakfast, but admittedly, I was wary because, well, the word 'grain' isn't the most appealing when referring to a baked item. Then I thought, 'it seems healthy and if I don't at least try, this grain will just sit in my pantry forever'.
The muffins are so simple to make and made the kitchen smell so good! With a total cook time of 30 minutes (15 for the preparation, including 10 minutes to let the mixture to stand, and 15 minutes for the baking itself), these muffins are my new favorite item.
Something you should know about me if that I love cornbread. These muffins had a very, very strikingly similar taste to cornbread and to say I was pleased would be an understatement. Try these out!
