Some of my best creative work is the direct result of something I've screwed up. The lunch box treat is a good example. I got so involved with the room switching yesterday that I forgot I needed to make bread. There weren't a lot of leftovers so I needed a lunch that I could make quickly. This is a miserable realization at 7pm after losing an hour to daylight savings the night before. Here's my creative solution.
First, I made a basic whole wheat muffin recipe. I substituted oat flour for 1/2 of the whole wheat flour because I seem to have a lot of oatmeal in the house. I put a small scoop of the batter into greased muffin tins, followed by a small scoop of almond butter, then a bit of grape fruit spread and finally another scoop of batter. I baked these about 5 minutes longer than the muffin recipe called for.
The result was peanut butter and jelly muffins for lunch. The kids were all thrilled. I think in the future I'd use a little less oil in the muffin batter since the muffins seemed a little oily to me but no one else seemed to notice.
Hey, its not the Vegan Lunch Box but I try.
