Hello Monday

Pin It
Hello Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate.
You taste like a liquid Reese Cup - so yummy on these cold January nights.

(Just add 1 T Peanut Butter to any hot chocolate mix, top with whipped cream - YUM)

Hello cute little snack container.
Still trying to plan ahead and have healthy snacks with me.

Hello new book and magazine.
Oh how I love you!!
(Anyone else reading the Hunger Games?)

Hello to drinking more water.
The lemon and cute cup sure do help.

Hello to making banana muffins healthier with flax seed and whole wheat flour.
Hello to my pretty aqua pan too :)

Hello Ziploc freezer containers that keep my muffins nice and fresh.

Hello to third week of January.
Hope it's a great one for you!

Banana Muffins

1 3/4 cup King Arthur white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 cup mashed ripe banana (I used 2 bananas)
1/3 cup milk (I used Almond Breeze)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 large egg
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray bottoms only of muffin pan or use liners.
Combine flour, flax seed, baking powder, salt and brown sugar.
In a large bowl beat milk, bananas, applesauce and egg with a whisk until well mixed.
Add dry ingredients to wet just until flour is incorporated.  Do not over mix.
Scoop batter into muffin tins.  Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
