SOMETIMES I’M A DREAMER
Somedays I imagine waking up in the middle of a farm, where the smell of brewing honey is thick and permeating, filling the air in the most glorious ways possible, and I can’t help but applaud. I hear the sound of fresh coffee beans being ground, one by one, accentuated by fragrant twirls of rich coffee essence floating lazily in the crisp morning air.
I breathe in the thick, hazy aroma of oats bubbling and boiling gently in the metal pot, and imagine what it would be like to walk barefeet on the hardwood floors, warm from the sunlight streaming through the large white windows. I see the rustic wooden table, whose surface was cut out of a single amazonian tree, adorned with irregular cream-colored chairs with tied-on cushions, worn out from age and use.
I sit down on one of them, the one nearest the window, where the sunbeam grazes my arm, and I take a generous bite of one of those freshly-baked muffins – still warm from the heat of the oven, filled with chopped walnuts, textured oats and perfumed by the faint but distinct taste of wild honey.
HONEY OAT WALNUT
Muffins which tastes of fresh honey, brown and sweet, intertwined with oats and roughly-chopped walnuts, rich and nutty.
Muffins that remind me of being on a farm, with the tastes of nature lingering in my mouth, and the aromas of fresh grass and morning dew tempting my nostrils.
Something simple to make, and even easier to eat, fuss-free yet tasty.
These are the honey oat walnut muffins I’ve dreamt about…
Each bite oozing with nutritious goodness..
A power-packed breakfast in every one of these small beautiful muffins.

These muffins sounds heavenly and I love the way your introduced them.. I was lost in my own thoughts and dreams of a farm, honey and coffee. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday.
thanks for dropping by! and for your lovely compliments. I hope you’ll like these muffins as much as I did, and i hope they transport you to somewhere in the countryside, as they did to me when I ate them 🙂
i would like to know the measurements in gms rather than cups?
Hi Mann, here’s a page which gives you all the conversions for different types of ingredients (both dry and liquid).
I used measurements in cups because I too a small cup (slightly more than 200 ml size) and filled it with the ingredients. So 1 cup of cream was around 200ml, and then for honey o filled up the entire cup, and for flour I filled up 3 cups, etc. hope this helps!
Sorry I forgot to pass u the page:
I wish I had one right now…they look amazing!!!
Hello! thank you so much for dropping by!
These muffins were an invention of mine, birth forth out of the cravings of all these natural ingredients – honey, oats and walnuts – all in the same bite. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!!
Happy Friday btw!
I love muffins too, They are such a treat to serve as snacks at small gatherings!
hahah…. the only problem with muffins is that too many muffins gives you a muffin top!!

Felicia! You know how much I love muffins….these were MADE FOR ME!! right?? heehee. 😉 Love these – honey oat is such a great flavor combo.
Enjoy your weekend! <3
Yes Jess!… i know exactly how much you love muffins! I don’t think I know anyone who loves muffins as much as you do!! There are so many different innovate types of muffins you’ve made and invented, I’ll never run out of muffin ideas in the future!! 🙂 I think I’m better with muffins than cupcakes – cream/frosting on top of muffins just make them more difficult to store!!
Oh Felicia, these look divine. Perfect for a summery day. I love your writing, too- you have such a way with words!
Hey Miranda!! Im having a great time finishing up these muffins!! Thanks for ur compliment – I’m glad you enjoy my writing 😉 have a great week ahead! Big hug!
Tienen que ser maravillosos….! Tentadora!
(Te acuerdas la receta del otro día ,que yo quise hacer con ricotta de oveja? Bueno ,salió muy bien!)
Siii me gustan estos muffins porque no son muy dulces y llevan un Monton de cosas ricas – nueces, avena y miel!
Me alegroooo que la crema de duraznos salió bien aun con ricotta!! Que suerte! Te mando un beso grande y Feliz dia del trabajador!!!
These sound like heaven right about now. Heaven.
Yes they are a bit of heaven on earth. If u like q stronger taste of honey add 1/4 or 1/2 cup more of honey. Thanks for dropping by! Enjoy ur day!
