I was a hot mess afterwards and decided I needed to share my stinky-ness with the world. I hit up the New Harris Teeter (that I believe is supposed to be "Green") that just opened up this week. We have probably 3 of these already in my town, but this one has a Starbucks inside :)
The store is very nice, but nothing too out of the ordinary (again...minus the exciting Starbucks!), but I did pick up a new hummus to try and it did not disappoint!
With Josh's parents coming into town, I have been doing some baking. I made up granola (2 cups oats, 1 cup coconut, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, 1/2 cup walnuts, 2 tablespoons flax, 3 tablespoons honey and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil baked at 250 for 1 hour). I also put together some Vegan Coconut Cornbread muffins. The recipe I used before seems to have disappeared, so I went off memory and made a few adjustments:
- 1 cup coconut
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon flax
- Mix dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another
- Combine ingredients
- Spray a muffin pan, divide mixture into 12
- Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes
These muffins have (according to my calculations) ~ 122 calories per muffin! How fabulous is that? Lastly, I made up a veganized version of these bars. I used 2 tablespoons of flax and 6 tablespoons of water instead of the 2 eggs. I also added in dried cherries instead of chocolate chips.
On a side note, I got a VERY fun package from the people at Galaxy Granola on Wednesday. They are releasing two new flavors (review to come). Any guesses on what the people who promote Fruit Not Fat have put together?
