Will Run For Cinnamon Chipotle Corn Muffins

I have yet to figure out how it can be -30 outside and I still want to peel off my hat, mitts, gloves, and jacket while at the same time feeling like my face is going to crack off because it is so bloody cold.  Get a neck warmer.  I know. 

I have a training schedule, an updated playlist, the sun was shining,and I was running for cornbread.  It's just skin and it didn't actually crack off (but it could have).

Rather than providing any kind of pacing this morning (hard to do from your couch in your penguin pyjamas) Pace Bunny provided a recipe instead.  Our conversation went something like this:

Me:  In your spare time can you send me your cornbread recipe?  With all of the ingredients. The way that you actually make it.

PB: 1 C flour, 1 C milk, 1 C cornmeal, 1 tsp baking power, 1/2 C sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 T oil.  Or something like that.

Me: white or brown sugar? Pan?  Cooking time?

PB: 1/2 hr @ 350 F.  There may or may not be an egg.

Cinnamon Chipotle Cornbread
(12 muffins)

1 C cornmeal
1C spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp chipotle powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 C soy milk + 2 tsp lemon juice
1/6-1/4 C buckwheat honey
1 egg (or flax egg)
2 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl combine cornmeal, spelt flour, baking power, chipotle powder and cinnamon.  In a large measuring cup combine milk & lemon juice.  Allow to sit for several minutes.  Add honey, olive oil, and egg to the measuring cup.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until well combined.

Oil 12 silicone muffin cups.  Divide batter evenly amongst muffin cups.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.  Allow to cool before adding cinnamon coconut butter.

Cinnamon Coconut Butter

(just less than 1/4 C)

2 T coconut oil
2 tsp amber maple syrup
1/4 tsp cinnamon

In a small bowl combine all ingredients.  Allow to cool in refrigerator or freezer (5 minutes) until coconut oil is firm.  Cream ingredients until well combined.  Eat directly out of bowl or use to top corn muffins.

It turns out everyone from Team Mall Walker made cornbread today.   
8K on the treadmill (why would anyone do that to themselves?) for  Ms. R.

honey instead of sugar + 1/3 C of frozen corn

Who is charge on next week's recipe?  P.S being in charge of the recipe does not mean that you get to skip the run.
