More Mail Box Fun and "Best" Muffins!

Let's start with an Eats Recap! Yesterday morning I had one of my favorite breakfast concoctions...a yogurt waffle bowl!
Oh yeah I added ONE choc chip on the hot piece of waffle (flash back to eating homemade waffles growing up...I ALWAYS put some chocolate chips in the little holes).

I used the remaining 0% Plain Chobani in the big container, added sliced strawberries, bananas, 1 Kashi Heart to Heart Waffle broken into pieces, and REAL maple syrup drizzle!Scrumptious!!

Lunch involved the last of my delish Roasted Veg's! and a half of a Flat Out Wrap with Honey Maple Turkey breast, dijon mustard, and lettuce...
And a mini container serving of TJ's Roasted Gorgonzola Crackers!Dinner! Leftover Pizza!!Plus a garden salad
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • 1 carrot
  • orange bell pepper
  • red onion
  • crumbled TJ's bagel chips as croutons!
  • Annie's Lite Honey Mustard dressing
Best Mail Week EVER!
super cute packaging :)
I first heard about these PB's on Amy's blog and IMMEDIATELY went to order I didn't even think twice!!

These are made by a great little restaurant in San Diego called Spread. They have TONS of PB and AB flavors!!

I had to get was a tough decision!No. 9: German Chocolate Peanut Spread - A delightful blend of milk chocolate, hand shredded coconut, and lightly crushed peanuts. Wonderful with fruit, but better just by itself!

No. 10: Blonde Peanut Butter Cup Peanut Spread
- For the true peanut spread fanatic, we hand blend our creamy white chocolate peanut spread with house made peanut butter cups.

No. 69: Cookies & Cream Peanut Spread - A decadent and delightful treat, our cookies & cream peanut spread tastes great straight out of the jar. Make it the base for an adult milkshake!

These are definitely going to be saved as special treats...the jars we're a BIT smaller than expected haha:But I tried each one and they are truly like the most amazing dessert in a jar! Can't wait to further my tastings!

Banana Muffin Mix# 1538435...but we'll just call them
Choco-Coconut Banana Muffins

Roomie: "AMAZING muffins!!!!" and "I think they might be the best ones you've ever made!"

Yay Roomie!! I feel like I make banana muffins the most of any baked goods and I always tweak the recipes...but I always keep them full of Whole Wheat flour, low in sugar and fats and mix in other fun stuff!!
Ready to go in the oven!


Dry Ingredients:
1 1/2 c. white whole wheat flour
1/2 c. APF
1/4 c/ ground flax
1/4 c. Almond Meal
1 t. Baking Soda
2 t. Baking Powder
1 t. salt
2 T Sucanant
1/4 c. unsweetened coconut

Combine in large bowl

Wet Ingredients:
1 T. Coconut oil
1 T canola oil
1 T honey
2 1/2 ripe bananas
Mash those together in a small bowl

1 cup vanilla soy milk
1 t. vanilla extract
1 egg

Mix Wet ingredients.

Add Wet to dry, and then I added 1/4 cup of mini vegan chocolate chips!

Mix to combine, but no more!

Spray muffin tin with canola oil spray, fill the 12 cups using all the batter. Top with pinch of Raw sugar and more coconut.

Bake at 375 for 18min.
OMG they were SO SO good! Sometimes when I make my "healthier" muffins I find them to be better the next day when the flavors had time to develop more (specifically the banana), but theses were MONEY right out of the oven...YUM!!

Using the mini choc. chips was great because they got more dispersed even though I only used 1/4 cup!

TGIF! I am off to my mom's house after work to PUPPY SIT for Willow :) YAY!!!
