Autumn baking.... has begun!

Wow I can NOT believe autumn is here already!!  I mean I was sure it was summer just a week or so ago.  Over the course of the last week our temperatures have begun a slow decline and there is a certain crispness to the air... yesterday the skies were a clear blue with puffy white clouds.  Today... we woke to drizzle and gun grey skies.  A perfect day for curling up with a good book and a cuppa.  It was also the perfect day to start stocking the freezer with muffins for breakfast.


Chocolate Oatmeal

Yes these are the giant sized muffins.  I've found that if I make normal sized muffins they are ALL gone in one sitting, even if I double the recipe.  So I double the recipe add a few secret ingredients to make them even healthier (and more filling) which in turn leaves me one or two.

Yes the idea was to bake enough to freeze but since this is the beginning of the "baking" season I thought I would splurge and let the guys eat them all.  

So by tomorrow morning after everyone has gone to school I'll start the process all over again... but this time these will go in the freezer, for those rushed mornings when no one wants cereal.
or for those leisurely mornings spent reading.

Hope you are enjoying the first days of fall!!
