Spelt-Buckwheat and Carrot Muffins - WHB #278

By Brii
it has been some time since I wrote on my blog. time is quickly passing by and there is so many things to do. spring is bursting out from every angle, and it is hard to keep up with it.
this is my favorite season, next week is my birthday and this time it is 48!
but, after the 50km mountain bike ride of this morning...I do say...can't feel them! :-DDD
this was the first time I made such a long ride alone, actually it was a race, but I was so slow I came back very, very last!
 now and then even having difficulties find the right path.
the guy that won made all the 55km in 1h 39 min, I lost myself and made only 50km and that took me over 5 h!!!!
anyway, I didn't fall, I didn't break anything and I didn't puncture!
I'm so happy!
no photos, can't ride and photograph, I'm too insecure doing both things at one time! :-DD
but, I'll show some photos of our Mount Baldo and our lovely Garda Lake!
made them yesterday during a beautiful trekking.
this is where we started, Valfredda 1200mt

and here we are in Costabella 1800mt, the Garda lake under our feet

I suffer from a very light gluten problem, that means I'm not celiac but should reduce very much the use of gluten food. I'm permitted spelt and oat f.ex. specially the oat is energetic and I need that to balance my loss of weight. I went from a size 42 (us 8) to a size 38 (us 4) in less than a month. not good, not good at all. :-(
my dear friend Alda made this muffins for me, with oat flour. I was without and tried another version.
they are very very good both! :-D
