What's the deal, universe?
When I finished school, I applied for a bunch of PhD programs. Didn't happen.
The next year I did it again. Didn't happen.
I moved to Oregon, applied for a bunch of jobs. Didn't happen.
I know what you're thinking...
"Maybe you're just incompetent."
But NO! No, no it isn't that.
It isn't, right?
Because now that I'm finally content, a hap-hap-happy stay-at-home mom I feel like all my dreams are coming true.
Dream jobs left and right are opening up.
I don't know where I'll end up. I'm pretty content where I am at. But isn't it funny. Two years ago I was so anxious for any opportunity. It only happens when you aren't expecting it, right?
What now, universe? What now?
Banana Almond Butter and Chocolate Chip Muffins (adapted from Cheeky Kitchen)
This recipe is almost vegan! And can be made so with a simple egg substitute, like 1/2 c garbanzo beans blended with 1/4 c soy milk)
1 very ripe banana
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons soy milk
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixer, beat together the banana, eggs, melted coconut oil, and brown sugar until smooth. Add remaining ingredients, then spoon into muffin tins lined with cupcake wrappers. Each wrapper should be about 2/3 full. Bake for 16-20 minutes, or just until the top of the muffins spring back when touched lightly. Remove and serve!
