January 9th

I tried a new recipe this afternoon... or I should say I made it up... chocolate cranberry coconut muffins. And wow. I think I have a new favourite! I'll add more applesauce next time, as they turned out a touch dry, but they are deliciously crunchy on top! The boys sadly didn't agree - Elliot dribbled his out in a long line across the table and Felix hid his, but that just means more for me!

I'd have to disagree with the boys on this one--they sound great! I'm not allowed spelt right now, but might have to whip up a GF version!

Those muffins look great. I'm going to have to try making them!
