Hey everyone!! Thank you all so much for your comments on my beloved Oats. I’ve already made them twice since I posted, and I’ve eaten them all!! So addicting.
I’ve got lots to share with you today. First off, I did some baking this weekend!! I know. I haven’t baked anything in a long time. Grad school man. Except I can’t really use that as an excuse, because this week is my first week back, I’ve had almost a month off.
I was at Wallyworld the other day, (thats Walmart) and I discovered some new Chobani flavors!!!! I almost squeeled in the yogurt section. No noise escaped my lips, but I did get a funny look from the lady standing a few feet away debating what type of cottage cheese to buy.
Vanilla chocolate chunk!!! Right when I got home I knew what I had to make with this. I had seen this recipe for Chocolate Chunk Muffins on Chole’s blog, Every Craving, but I brushed it aside thinking, I’ll never find that Chobini here. (Even though I could have just used vanilla chobani and added more chocolate. I’m not a quick thinker.)
I thought about making them gluten-free so I could enjoy them as well, but sometimes just substituting gf flour for the regular stuff doesn’t always turn out well, and I didn’t want to waste my precious Chobani. I followed the recipe as is, except I used coconut oil instead of canola, and I used egg replacer eggs because my mom hard boiled the last of the eggs we had.
My batter turned out kind of stiff, and I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be like that. It might have been the fact that I used coconut oil and fake eggs. Or maybe it was just supposed to be like that. Either way, I was about to scoop some into my muffin liners, when I thought. I bet these would make awesome cookies. So I made cookies.
They were amazing. Or so I hear. My brother and my dad polished them all off. (A double batch!!) I made them Sunday, and they are all gone as of today. (Well, really Tuesday night.) I’m definitly going to try them with gluten-free flour once I’m brave enough.
Since I’m apparently incapable of following recipes exactly, I didn’t do it quite the same way she did. I nixed the spinach (Is it just me, or does cooked spinach taste like fish to you? I just can’t handle it.) and doubled up on the mushrooms in the filling. Also, instead of boiling the ravioli, I baked them, because I’m all about throwing things in the oven and forgetting about them. I made a triple batch, so we could have them two nights. I love leftovers. I simply sprayed a 9×13 inch pan, spread a little marinara sauce on the bottom, placed my raviolis out in one layer, then topped them with some more sauce. Bake them at 350 for 45 minutes and you’re all set!! They are sooo good. Even my gluten eating brother loved them. Even my gluten and meat eating dad loved them.
I just had to throw this in here. Dinner of champions much??? Gotta love (veggie/gluten-free) hot dogs and (dairy-free/gluten-free) macaroni and cheese!!! I had like, 2 more helpings of noodles, fuurr shuurr.
Welp, that’s about all I’ve got for now. Ok. That’s a lie. I’ve got a picture of Dwight.
Lazy day yesterday for Dwight!!! He looks so sleepy. And just one more, I promise, that’s the last one.
It’s a Dwight taco. He got stuck in the couch. Silly kitty.
Do you follow recipes exactly, or do you change them up a bit?? Have you been eating anything good lately??
