~~**Quest Bar Upside-Down Muffins**~~

An idea occurred to me yesterday while I was daydreaming and eating an omelette. Why not use the flip side of the muffin pan? I went through deep thought. In order to use the bake on the flip side, I’ll need to make a thick batter so it’ll stick to its shape. Too much liquid and I’ll have it oozing down the aides like water, and that wouldn’t look so good. Well then, pancake, cake, and muffin batters were out of the question. I’ll need to make something solid, like a cookie batter.
And then an idea hit me.
Why not bake a quest bar? I love those things, they’re so versatile and I needn’t spend time or make a mess preparing the ingredients. Perfect!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 tbsp Homemade Cookie Butter OR 2 tbsp nut butter
- 1 tbsp protein powder(optional)
- Any quest bar*
*I used cinnamon. If you used my homemade cookie butter as the filling, try using a coconut cashew bar. If your filling contains nut butter, use a peanut-flavoured bar. If your protein powder is chocolate flavoured, try a chocolate flavoured one.
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Warm the quest bar in be microwave for 15 seconds.
- Roll into two balls, one bigger than the other.
- Flatten the circles onto the bottom of a muffin tin.
- Make sure the bigger ball is slightly covering the sides of the muffin tin, while the smaller ball only covers the very top.
- Bake for 4-6 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix all the filling ingredients together and freeze for 4-6 minutes.
- Take off the “Upside Down Muffin” and spoon in the filling.
- Cover the top with the now baked smaller flattened ball. Place back in the turned-off-but-still-warm oven for 1 minute or dig in right away!
