Someday, we think, Maile will become a renowned chef. That, or a veterinarian with an affinity for baking and cooking. In the meantime, our sweet girl is my number one idea machine and critic.
This afternoon, as I heaped a leftover black bean enchilada onto a plate for us to share, she tilted her head ... "Mama?" "Yes." "These 'chiladas are too spicy for Maile; can I have something different?" From the child who will eat Sriracha (we like spice around here).
When it comes to breakfast, Maile is a creature of habit: scrambled eggs, steel cut oats, from-scratch biscuits and gravy. One morning last week though, she asked for muffins. "Sure!" I said, reaching for a mixing bowl. "After eggs," she clarified. Of course.
She really wanted to use apples in our recipe, and these One Bowl Apple Almond Muffins were the result. This recipe is paleo friendly, and easy to make vegan, too. For muffins, they are quite nutritious and not too sweet; Maile ate two straight out of the oven!
You can find the recipe here. Enjoy, friends.
