I have a bad habit of consuming myself with various projects in our house, whether big or small; in my mind there is always something to do. At times I find this to be a bit funny because I realize I am turning into my mom (love you!). I find it incredibly hard to sit still and relax when I have a list of things that need to get done during the day. Thankfully, John lovingly reminds me to be intentional about resting. He often urges me to simply relax, and take some time out for myself. That seems simple enough right? Sadly, it is harder for me than I would have thought, but I know that it is possible. As instructed, I made a small batch of muffins, found a comfortable spot in our house, and sipped on my favorite tea. And despite my immediate inclination to clean the kitchen right away, I instead sat down and began to reflect on what has been going on in my life. Setting aside that time for was a reminder of how important it is for me to disconnect from my duties, and be left to my own thoughts. Maybe my situation resonates with you, maybe it does not, but at the very least, I hope this can serve as a sweet reminder to take some time out of your busy week, and indulge in whatever activity brings you peace.
I knew that I would want to snack on something during my time of reflection, so I ended up baking a batch of these tasty muffins. I had been wanting to come up with a recipe for a breakfast muffin for a while now, one that is healthier than the traditional muffin, but one that didn’t compromise on flavor.
Freshly grated carrots, diced green apples, and fresh ginger, are folded into a spelt batter that turns out to be a great flavor combination for these muffins. What is great about these, is that you can play around with the ingredients, add some nuts for crunch, or some fresh berries perhaps.
These muffins are perfect for breakfast, a meal on the go, or simply a delicious snack to accompany you during some much needed personal time.
