Monday night because of Hurricane Sandy we were without power. Getting out of bed in the dark and in the cold was not a pleasurable experience, especially knowing that my coffee maker was not working. But being greeted by these little gems made up for the inconveniences a tad.
The recipe was posted on Once A Month Mom back in early September and I have been obsessing about them ever since. Finally I got around to baking them on the weekend and two days later they are still outstanding. I altered the original recipe ever so slightly, to make it a little bit more healthy, but that did not alter the flavour at all. The trouble is stopping at only a few at a time. I find them very similar to Tim Horton’s cinnamon sugar tim bits but these taste better and less fake like a lot of commercial bakery goods taste.
Once A Month Mom is a brilliant web site by the way. They have many different monthly menus for batch freezer cooking and I often follow both the whole foods and the vegetarian plans. Most of the recipes are easy to prepare and they are often fun and inventive. I highly recommend the site to busy moms or anyone interested in freezer cooking and only cooking once a month.
On to the recipe!
