Oh my goodness. It has been a long time since there was so little food in my house. We literally had NOTHING "ready to eat" today, except hardboiled eggs and some fruit, that became breakfast!
I decided if ever there was a time to bake, now is it. It's so easy to use up our chametz this way!

Today I made apple-cinnamon oatmeal muffins, and whole wheat-flaxseed bagels.

Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal muffins

5 T. ground flaxseed
1 c. whole  oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups boiling water
1/4 c oil
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 apple, diced
4 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt 

Mix the first 4 ingredients together, and let sit for 10 min. Then add everything else, and mix well. Pour into muffin pan (lined with muffin cups, if you don't want to grease your pan). Bake at 175 C for about 25-30 min. watch them, though, my oven seems to bake slowly, not sure why (at least when I use the non-convection oven. I have a double oven, one is convection but it is large, and I only like to use it when I'm filling it, the other is a small, regular oven.).

  1. Baking is definitely a wonderful way to use up your chametz and a delicious one at that! I always enjoy apples and cinnamon together, and oatmeal muffins are one of my favourite healthy breakfasts. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe with the Hearth and Soul hop.
