I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

The Best Bran Muffins Ever!!!

I wanted to cook something with the beautiful organic carrots from my mother's garden...
I used Martha White Honey Bran muffin mix as a base...

And I used our mini Cuisinart for the first time to chop the carrots, which worked wonderfully-I just wish the mixing part had a handle!
Stirring in the carrots-they really brighten up the mixture!
Then I chopped up about a 1/2 cup of walnuts too and added them and a huge hunk of honey to the mix.
Next I put the batter into the new silicone baking pans I had just bought. At first, I was a little skeptical that they would be as great as advertised, but they are!!! Silicone baking pans are wonderful, because they cool faster than a regular metal pan, they are microwave and dishwasher safe, are non-stick-no need to grease!-but best of all to remove the muffins from the pan you just lightly push on the bottom and the muffins pop right out!
Yummy! (Although I think I'll add a little cinnamon if I make them again...)

  1. Mmm! Sounds good! What a way to jazz up the simple mix! I would add a bit of walnuts in there, too! :-)
