Cranberry orange oatmeal muffins... Returning.

Posted Apr 13 2013 10:05am
  I have been coming and going lately, blogging less and less in the recent months. My job had been draining not only more and more of my time, but all of my creative energy and spirit. So I resigned.

We are now going to have a bit of a financial struggle until I find another job, but I for one would rather be broke than part of an organization that went against the very core of my values. And what are urban pioneers if not thrifty? Making your food from scratch is time consuming, but always more economical... Take these lovely muffins, for example!

Cranberry orange oatmeal muffins...

2 cups whole wheat flour1 cup rolled oats1/2 cup turbinado sugar2 tablespoons chia seeds1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • Stir together the flour, oats, sugar, chia seeds, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, dried cranberries, orange zest, and almonds.
  • In a separate bowl, combine Soymilk and lemon juice, and set aside for 7 minutes
  • Add the soymilk mixture to the dry ingredients along with the oil and agave nectar, and mix until combined.
  • Transfer mixture into prepared muffin tins. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Remove from oven, and set aside for 10 minutes to cool before serving - they will smell wonderful!
