Low Fat Everything Muffin

I’m such a muffin whore. I mean hoard.  Muffin hoard.  I hoard muffins.

Honestly, I don’t know where my mind has been lately.

Off daydreaming about the upcoming Valentine’s Day Parajumpers Sverige holiday I suppose.  Dreaming of all the wonderful things that make my spine tingle.

Like coconut.

And Blueberries.

And Bananas, creamy and slightly hypnotic.

Crunchy Pecans that beg to be bitten, crunched and devoured.

Flax Seed to make you strong and healthy and vigorous for whatever activities you might need vigor for. . . .

There I go again.  I’m gonna stop now really.

And eat a muffin. 

Better give one to Mr. Woo.  He might need his stamina.

The Low Fat EVERYTHING Muffin

Add to it what you like.  Take out what you don’t.  The batter is your shell, and you are the oyster.  Whatever that means.

Actually, in stroke of genius, I might know what that means. Maybe it means you can put it in a bread pan if you like, or make muffins if that is what makes you all hot and bothered. It’s up to you.
