Apple Walnut Oatmeal Cookies

Apple Walnut Oatmeal Cookies  |  Amandeleine

Let’s see.. what’s going on with me lately.

I’m 8 episodes into Orange is the New Black… was Donna from That 70s Show always this hot? I think it’s the eyeliner. I love a good cateye.

I’m horribly addicted to threes. My top score is 24,921, which sounds impressive, but not if you hear how often I play.

I’m down 3 out of the 10 pounds I am aiming to lose… and would really rather be eating chocolate than the little bowl (and I do mean little. Prep bowl little) of blueberries next to me.

I love fruit, I do, but a girl needs her chocolate.  Not that I’ve cut out chocolate (I would never), but if you’re trying to shed a lumpy tire, not every single baked good can be oozing with chocolate.

That’s how I gained back the 10 (now 7) I have on.

Which happen to look a lot like Spiced Oat and Pear Blondies.

Whatever, one cannot have too much baked fruit and oat streusel.

Applesauce Spice Muffins

I’m kind of obsessed with muffins lately.

I just keep opening my cupboards on Saturday mornings to see what I can stuff into a muffin so that I may eat many muffins.

They’re like healthy versions of cakes for breakfast! At least the “healthy” part is what I tell myself while I’m halfway through my second muffin in 5 minutes…

Apple Crisp

Every now and then I like to ask Trevor what his favourite baked good I make is. You would think I would know, but with all the different things I bake and with how often I bake them, he has trouble picking one. I go ahead and ask anyway and after some thought a list is often produced as opposed to a single clear winner. The list usually contains at least one coconut based item and one fruit based item.

Lately, apple crisp has been the latter.

To be honest, I think apple crisp is the single clear winner for him whether Trevor realizes it or not. Here’s why.
