Chaos & Muffins

So we were sick.

And then just as we were getting better, Dave got an ear infection that ruptured his eardrum in under 4hrs. Seriously.

And then we went to Great Wolf Lodge for 3 days. We just got back home early this afternoon and have been decompressing from Too Much Fun. They even had candy in the gift store that the kids could get - "old fashioned" clear rock candy. Only ingredient: cane sugar.

I'm still reading and note-taking on Vit K. We've been experimenting with supplementation. "Low & Slow" is our motto. I hope to have a post up about that in the next week.

In the meantime, I thought I'd share my recipe for Chocolate Chip Flax Mini Muffins:

1/3 c palm shortening or coconut oil (or butter)
4 eggs
1/2c honey (or a bit less maple syrup)
1Tbsp molasses (for that "brown sugar" flavor)
1 tbsp vanilla
1.5c flax meal
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 c mini chocolate chips (a la Enjoy Life - I bet "regular" chips would be fine, too)

* Preheat oven to 350*F

* Cream shortening & eggs

* Mix in honey, molasses & vanilla

* In a separate bowl, mix ground flaxmeal, baking soda, cream of tartar & sea salt (I think you could sub 1.5 to 2tsp of baking powder for the soda + cream of tartar)

* Mix dry into wet.

* Mix in chocolate chips.

* Let batter sit for a few minutes and allow the flax to absorb the liquid.

* Bake in paper-lined mini muffin pans for 15 min

Yields approx 36 mini muffins
