Happy Healthy New Year!

Wow, it's been a while since I shared anything yummy!  This lovely hot muffin was a creation made all by this wacky girl today!!  When you are out of what the recipe calls for, like all of it, you make up a new one!! 

Mash 5 over ripe bananas, I freeze old ones and use them for this
In same bowl add 4 "eggs" - egg replacer of your choice & mix together

In another bowl, add 1 cup of oil, half a cup of almond milk & 1 1/2 cup of brown sugar & mix together

In yet another  add 2 cups of spelt flour, 1 cup of quinoa flakes & half a cup of hemp seeds with 2 tbsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of baking soda.

Mix all three bowls together, add chopped walnuts or whatever you like, raisins, pecans...anything!!  Bake at 375C for 25 minutes & enjoy!!

On a side note, this girl has a new hobby....Needle Felting.  While is may seem odd for a vegan to be using wool after 23 years of never using an animal product or bi-priduct, I have found that there are ethical ways to use wool from people who care & I feel so privileged that these lovely creatures are allowing me to use their wool for my own pleasure. I  respect that immensely.  If you'd like to come by to have a peek ... Bubbles n' Binx

So far so good, each tall one is about 7" tall & took about 4 hours each.  All by poking, poking, poking with a needle. Very therapeutic.  Wool was purchased in New Brunswick Canada, in person, on a farm where the animals are loved, never sold or eaten, and allowed to live out their natural lives in harmony with the lands, fellow critters & the humans who love them.  These are the types of places I will only look at in the future for felting supplies.  

Hope your year has had a great start & that you are all happy, healthy & well loved yourselves!!
