Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

It has been well over a month since the last time I baked anything. Life has been crazy getting ready to move to Vancouver, catching up on a few projects (still working on that part) and working a lot. Although the last few weeks have been busy, I love my work and I have been enjoying my work load. I just had to adjust a bit and get more organized! My last day in Victoria (at least on a full time basis) will be April 26th. If you need to see me for a bike fit or meet for nutrition consulting / coaching - I do have time, but the schedule is filling up fast. Get in touch to book an appointment! Anyways, back to the muffins. These have been on my mind for a little while now, and I figured I need to get back to some baking, because I really enjoy it. Also, once I pack up my kitchen, move and then unpack it... It will be a while before I get to bake anything again. So tonight was muffin baking night!
