National Quick Bread Day!
Did you guys know that it's national bread day? I didn't... but the people at Driscoll's fruit let me know and asked if I wanted to make a bread recipe from them with their fruit. Sure thing I do!! The problem is I didn't get a chance to run to the store yet for the berries... so I'm totally going to make the recipe tonight! The Blackberry Walnut Streusel Quick Bread will be coming to your screens shortly! (of course you know I wont be able to leave it alone and plan on healthing it up... Hope you don't mind Driscoll's!?!?
So to keep you happy and full today I'm going to be bringing you a steph chows quick bread original!! And it's even quicker than quick bread since it's a quick bread in muffin form. HOORAY MUFFINS ARE BACK!! I know you've been missing the muffin mania right??
The other fun thing about this recipe is I tried out Wholesome sweeteners Organic zero... it's a zero calorie sweetener that is totally organic, no chemicals here! I think these muffins came out great texturally with the perfect amount of sweet. Love it!
