My husband is spoiled rotten and the envy of many at his office. Pre marriage and cohabitating, I set an unfortunate precedent for myself. Being giddy with love and blinded by my visions of our future babies, I began to cook for him, A LOT.
I made him breakfast and lunch to take to work as well as a nutritious hot meal for dinner. At first he was very appreciative of all the effort, but as time wore on it became expected. The look of disappointment on his face when I failed to produce was heartbreaking, Ok not heartbreaking, really freaking annoying.
However, in the interest of his health and longevity I didn’t want him eating junk meals on the go. I needed something I could make in advance that feed him for the week. Muffins seemed like the best option. Whip them up Sunday night and voila you have breakfast for the week.
After trying out several different recipes, I found one that was both easy for me to make, nutritious for him to eat and tasty enough to enjoy. These muffins are moist, delicious, gluten and oil free, if you care about those things. They are so popular that co-workers ask him frequently for the recipe and if they can sample a muffin. He has even had them stolen out of the refrigerator several times! Who would steal someone else’s muffins? It’s crazy or maybe they are just that GOOD. Try them and decide for yourself. If you take them to work make sure to put your name on the bag and a stern warning to keep hands off!
