Carbs & Coffee

Not sure if this started with my pregnancy, or it's always been my weakness, but I love me some carbs with my coffee. It's almost become a must.  Any sort of carb will do... teddy grahams, graham crackers, pop-tarts {defiantly from my preggo days}, granola, cherrios... pastries, doughnuts and muffins.

O, pastries, doughnuts, and muffins... fall is truly your season. Apple Cider, Pumpkin Spice, Cinnamon Sugar... that pretty much sums up my fall mornings.

It's probably my greatest downfall of loosing this post-baby belly. But, my jeans fit and they say this breast-feeding thing burns some serious calories.... so for the meantime, or at least this fall, i'm going to enjoy my coffee & carbs.

Looking for a quick recipe for muffins?

Look no further than good ol' Martha White! I always keep a pack or two of these on hand for my carb craved mornings. Multi-grain blueberry and lemon poppyseed are both good, but apple cinnamon is my favorite.

An easy way to add some healthy crunch:

1 Martha White apple cinnamon muffin mix
1 small gala apple, cubed
1/2 cup of raisons
1/2 cup skim milk

Combine all ingredients and cook as directed on muffin pack.

My favorite pumpkin muffins:

1 box spice cake mix
1 can pumpkin
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

Add in's:
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup raisons
1 cup chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients and cook as directed on cake box.

As for coffee, I picked up an easy way to make your own pumpkin coffee at home. Simply add pumpkin pie spice to your coffee grounds {1 tsp. per 2 cups of water}, brew at home and enjoy! It's delicious... and an added bonus - how great your kitchen smells at 6 a.m.

Cheers to coffee & carbs my friends!
