Banana Avocado Muffins

Just Sharing!

 

I just recently came back from vacation and for some reason my creative flow has been somewhat blocked.  Usually it just the opposite. So instead of writing nothing and not wanting to continue feeling guilty everyday that goes by without posting, I decided to share these delicious avocado and banana muffins I made a few months ago… let me rephrase… I don’t still have the muffins (Ewww) so I can’t actually share them with you but I will share the recipe.

If you’re like me you love a little sweet every now and then… (for me it’s more every now instead of every then… but don’t judge). Anyway,   I had a few over ripe bananas lying around and a ripe avocado.  I hate wasting food so I started looking for ways to use the two fruits together… yes… avocado is a fruit… a berry no less! Who knew?!

I used this recipe from http://www.allrecipes.com for the base but made a few changes.  I was really surprised they came out so well… moist, not too sweet and not so bad for you either.

I cut the flour from 2 cups to 1 cup but added 1/2 cup of oats and 1/2 cup of rice flour.
I switched out the 1/2 cup milk for 1/2 cup almond milk and didn’t use as much sugar a little under a 3/4 cup of a mixture of white and brown sugar.
I also added 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of ground ginger.  The recipe called for walnuts but I didn’t have any walnuts 🙂

Until then… Be Well!

Hello, Hmm... What to say? I always hate filling in these "About Me" sections of the profile. I never quite know what to say. Or I'll start writing only to find I've gone over the character allotment and half the things I've typed are not there. Ok, I just looked... I don't see a character limit so here goes... My name is Carol, although sometimes I refer to my middle name (Andrea) which is the name that my family calls me and people whom I grew up with from a wee tyke. Anyway, I just quit my retail job. Did I mention it was in retail? Right... I was there for seven years until I finally decided I had, had enough... that my sanity, and my emotional and physical well being were far more important to me than a biweekly paycheck. Don't get me wrong... I am thankful to have had the opportunity to have had a job. It was exactly what I needed and where I needed to be at that point in my life. but right, this is exactly what I need and where I want to be at this point in my life. Being "jobless" can be a scary thing at times. But not having to punch a clock everyday allows me the opportunity to do what I love... Cultivating what makes me happy... Creating quiet beautiful spaces in my home... Learning about different ways of being and and reconnecting with Self. I am in the latter half of my fifth decade and finding it to be one of amazingly beautiful growth. I embrace my true voice and my own sense of style while finding different ways of cultivating my personal well being and sharing what I learned works best for me. I hope you stop by from time to time to say hello and join me on my journey. Be Well!
