Donuts

December 7, 2010

They may not look like donuts. And they may not be made of sugar and white flour. But they sure taste like donuts!

These English muffins [which I purchased at Integral Yoga here in town] are absolutely divine!!

Doughy, chewy, yeasty, hearty.

You know it takes a lot for me to choose an alternative to oat-based breakfasts. These whole wheat cinnamon raisin muffins from The Bread Basket are that good.

Slathered with pumpkin spice almond butter, pumpkin butter and banana. With a side of pear.

It’s hard for me to have a non-oat breakfast too. Sometimes I decide to try, but halfway through meal prep, all I want is oats!

Kath,

First off, I’ve been following your blog for the past several months and I love it! You have inspired me to make oatmeal with melted chunks of banana a staple breakfast. Thank you =)
Those english muffins look AMAZING and like you it would take a lot for me to switch from my oatmeal. Next time, I’m in Charlottesville, I’ll have to check out The Bread Basket.

There’s a lot of bad English muffins out there and a few really good ones. Yours must be good if they won out over the oats for breakfast!

I adore English muffins…that’s actually the breakfast I had yesterday! I love how chewy they are in the middle, but the edges get so crispy…and jam just sinks into the little air pockets – YUM!!
