Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bran Muffins! (see recipe below)
Woah, baby, am I gonna be SORE tomorrow!! After work, I went to BodyPump, and apparently it decided it wanted to kick my butt. I don’t know what the deal was? I know it’s been almost a week since my last class, I didn’t up my weights, and all the tracks were the same. But for some reason, my muscles were a-shakin’ during tonight’s class and I can already feel the muscle fatigue! But that’s ok, it’ll be a good sore Before class, I ran for about 20 minutes on the treadmill – I would give you my actual distance BUT, I accidentally hit the STOP button 7 minutes in, so I had to restart. UGH! I would have to guess maybe around 1.75 miles?
By the time I got home, I was absolutely ravenous and was like a tornado going through the kitchen. I think I ended up eating about 5 kashi crackers, a fork full of leftover bbq pulled chicken, and a couple pretzels before even stopping to decide on an actual dinner. YIKES! Luckily, I had a quick option available for me…leftover bbq chicken, thrown together to make a delicious BBQ Chicken Wrap
Mmmm, and the rest of my leftover roasted veggies. Looks like it’s time to get roastin’ again
For my wrap, I started with a La Tortilla Factory whole wheat wrap (aka, DA BOMB), and filled ‘er up with a nice big ‘ol scoop of leftover BBQ Pulled Chicken, about 1/2 a wedge of the Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese, some romaine lettuce, and an extra drizzle of bbq sauce. I popped it in the micro for about 20 seconds just to get things cookin, and then I chowed
After dinner, I decided to so a little baking! I’ve had this box of bran muffin mix from Hodgson Mill for a little while now, and decided to give it a whirl.
I wanted to “jazz up” my bran muffins a little bit, so I added in some chopped apple & golden raisins for my “fixins'”
(Cody was also helping me bake, as you can see…)
Sorry, this stuff was not going to photograph pretty!
The recipe called for butter or vegetable oil, but I used canola. And instead of 2% milk, I used my almond milk. Here’s the final recipe!

These babies had my kitchen smellin’ YUMMY! I’m sure they’d be really yummy with chocolate chips or blueberries, which I may have to try next time. I think I’m going to have to get my hands on one of these before I sit down to watch my fave Wednesday night shows – Modern Family & Cougar Town!
Does anyone else watch Cougar Town??
(I know I’ve asked this before, but I need to know I’m not the only one sitting laughing hysterically at this show!)
