Tonight we are taking dinner to some friends who recently had a baby. So, last night I put together chicken enchiladas for them (and us) and made some muffins. Feels great to know tonight's dinner is already made and just needs to be put in the oven..!! I made this recipe for the muffins, with my own adjustments of course.. And they turned out pretty dang good, I was impressed!! :)
[Gluten Free] Skinny Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
from Shugary Sweets
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large bananas, mashed
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
6 oz vanilla greek yogurt
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels
In a large mixing bowl, beat honey, agave nectar, egg, vanilla and banana until blended. Add flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and yogurt. Beat for 1-2 minutes until fully combined. Fold in chocolate morsels.
Grease cupcake tin with nonstick baking spray. Spoon batter into each tin (about 1/4 cup). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 18-20 minutes. For mini, muffins, bake 11-13 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for later use.
**I made the following changes:
I didn't have agave, so I used a 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
Gluten-free flour mix (instead of all-purpose/whole wheat flour) + guar gum
I just realized it calls for vanilla greek yogurt, I used plain
We recently took some newborn/family pictures for some friends of ours.
She surprised me with a sweet necklace as a thank you and it just made my day. It was so thoughtful and unexpected, including a little 'T' for my special little guy.
Speaking of that little guy...
Hmmm.. :( I'm sure it's a phase and I'm trying not to take it personal, but...!! Is this normal?! Or does my son already think I'm not cool.. :) Please tell me I'm not the only one...?!?!
Hope you're having a great week. The weekend is almost here!!
