And I made this for dessert that night. It was GREAT!
Anyway, that is NOT what this post is about. A few days ago we had some friends coming over for lunch and I wanted to make a good "healthier" dessert so I tried to make this:
|Triple Chocolate Chunk Muffin|
I was so excited that they were healthier than most chocolate muffins and I realized after reading the ingredients that it can easily be a GF recipe, yes, that's right, a gluten free recipe if you are sure to buy certified GF oats. Then I read the directions and found that I blend the whole thing! BLEND THE WHOLE THING! How easy is that? My kind of baking!! At this point I was VERY excited to try them. Well, all seemed to be going well until I got to the add 1 cup of hot water at the very end... wow! that sure made them liquidy. Then it said to stir in half the chocolate chips??? I knew right away that was a big FAIL since they would all fall to the bottom. Anyway, they came out looking like this:
The good thing is they tasted wonderful! Spongy and moist, but totally caved in! Luckily, my friends didn't care so much about the looks of it since they tasted so good. But still...
So, to the point. What did I do wrong? As many of you know I am fairly new to baking and MUST follow a recipe (you will not see any recipes made by me on Pinterest anytime soon) so I need help in fixing recipes sometimes. I am wondering if I should have omitted the water or maybe just put 1/2 cup of the water in? What do you think? I would really like to make these again but would also like them to be prettier. :) Thanks in advance for all of you help! Please comment below so I can try your suggestions next time!
