What is it about the Olympics that captures the attention of every Man, Women and child.
In the weeks leading up to the Olympics , all I could think about was NO more Hockey (NHL that is) for 2 whole weeks. Then, Mr PBandO started talking about the Olympics with great anticipation. Really? I was totally ambivalent to the Olympics. When ask if I was going to watch I was all “eh… probably not”. You see, growing up, all I remember is my mom monopolizing the TV with all the skating competitions… boring!! I was actually starting to miss the idea NHL hockey.
Funny thing happened this weekend I watched an entire mogul skiing competition. Like watched it… the whole thing… even offered up some of my own professionally commentary…. what? I could be a professional judge; I judge things all the time in my daily life.
I just stopped writing this post to ask what was happing with women’s luge… luge? What’s happening to me? I guess my whole point here is… Olympics, you have me hooked… GO TEAM CANADA!
Oh ya… I made us chocolate muffins, because chocolate muffins and the Olympics go hand and hand. That’s a thing right?
1 Cup of Flour
1 Cup of Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1 ½ Teaspoons of Baking Soda
½ Teaspoon of Salt
2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
2/3 Cups of Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
¼ Cup of Melted Butter
1 Cup of 1% Milk
1 Cup of Chocolate Chips
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tin with paper liner, set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together both flours, Baking soda, salt, cocoa powder and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together brown sugar, 1 egg (beaten), vanilla, melted butter, and milk.
Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Using an ice cream scoop, or a large spoon, divide batter amongst the 12 lined muffin cups.
Bake for 20 25 minutes, or until centers are set. Use a tooth pick to test the doneness (is that a word?).
Allow to cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
