Mixed-Bag Mondays: I liked them

Both of these were recipes that I liked but maybe require some tweaks.

Apple Butter Star Bread

If you’re looking for something to use your apple butter with, then here is a recipe. It was quite popular with my kids and did not last long. It has apple butter in it, but if that isn’t enough for you, we also ate it with more apple butter. Definitely good.

Slow Cooker Apple Butter

The kids had been wanting to go apple picking for years. We didn’t go for various reasons (kids were too little to do any picking, lots of rain, a long drive, etc. We finally took them this year and probably won’t go again for awhile (it was fine, but the apples are so expensive compared to the store, and if we want a better price, the drive is twice as long).

Blueberry Muffin Cake

I was excited to see this cake because I knew it would be a fun way to ship something similar to blueberry muffins, but without worries about it being too fragile.

Dairy-Free Nut Butter Oat Muffins

This is the other recipe I had wanted to try that I paired with the last one. These are a heartier more dense muffin. They are perfect for breakfast to help fill you up. K is not an oat fan, so he did not have any, but the kids and I liked them.

Dairy-Free Blueberry Muffins

When I made these muffins, I wasn’t sure about this recipe or a different one, and decided to try both. You could certainly double the recipe and make the full amount, but I was happy having 6 big muffins. The Fudgelet preferred these, and the Chiplet preferred the other recipe I made, but both ate both. I will share the other recipe soon…I hope.
