Nature & Baking

A special breakfast outing to our favorite little doughnut shop started our morning off right. With hubbie starting his new job and out the door so incredibly early, the whole house was up before 6am. Dressing and getting our chores done we packed up and got a sweet treat and momma got some wake me up coffee. Quiet with only an older couple in the store as everyone else was probably at school or work on this Monday morning but there we were, enjoying our Monday together- feeling so blessed to have flexible work at home schedule and be homeschooling these two. A quick trip to the grocery store then we headed off to the Library on onto the park for some nature exploring and of course a lot of play....and sweet sister quickly dove into some of her new books.

Getting home from the park, lunch was made, quiet time was had while momma baked an afternoon snack of chocolate chip muffins and banana bread for morning breakfast.

We adapted the recipe from this one: http://www.bakerita.com/vegan-blueberry-muffins/ 
But we've used it to a T when making vegan blue berry, yumm....

Vegan Chocolate Chip Muffins:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips
  • Ours went on 400 for exactly 22 minutes.
 And I vouch that you CAN NOT taste the banana! Our daughter (our picky eater) loved these!
 And my all time favorite banana bread recipe, our son's go to breakfast several mornings a week. (Minus nuts on ours!)
Today's goal is to bake some sandwich bread that I didn't get to yesterday, to explore with the kids, read together- we just got Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (seen the movies but not read the books yet), get some more cleaning done to prep for our 4H meeting tonight and have a great day together.

May joy find you in every moment of your day.
