Baking

I really enjoy baking.
The only good thing about the drab, dreary, damp, drippy weather we've been having is my inspiration to fill my house with the warm, comforting smells of baking.
One of my favourite things to bake is bread. There is nothing more mouthwatering to me than warm, soft bread slathered in butter (excuse me while I wipe the saliva off my chin). I have had some fantastic successes in the bread department but also some fabulous failures. The failures usually come from attempting healthy types of bread, then I sometimes end up with paper weights or door stops instead of light, fluffy bread.
The other day I went to my good friend Google and found this recipe for whole wheat bread. It is an easy recipe to follow and the bread turned out light and delicious. If I'm feeling brave I might try lowering the sweetness content some time, not for the sake of flavour but for the sake of health.
Today I was looking for a healthy blueberry muffin recipe because we have forty pounds of blueberries invading our freezer that I should start using. I found this one. Very little sugar, whole wheat flour and if you read through the comments you can see others modified it by adding ingredients such as oatmeal, which I did.

They turned out pretty good, tasty for sure. A hair tough perhaps - but I did have a 3 year old helping me so they likely got a bit over mixed! I'll definitely make them again.
