Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Tropical Muffins

As we reach the shortest day of the year, make these muffins to bring a summer feel to the house.  Makes 18 muffins.

  1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour                                                     
  1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour                                                        1 Large Egg
  1/2 Cup Sugar                                                                          1 Cup Peaches, Diced
  1/3 Cup Ground Flax seed                                                         1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut
  2 Tsp Baking Powder                                                               1/4 Cup Coconut Powder
  1/4 Cup Salted Butter                                                               1 Tsp Orange Extract
  1/4 Cup Water                                                                         1 Cup 1% Milk

Preheat oven to 400* F.  Grease or line muffin tins.

Heat water and butter in the microwave until the butter is melted.  Add milk, beaten egg and orange extract.  Stir and set aside.

Mix flours, sugar, flax seed and baking powder.  Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Stir in coconuts and peaches.  Divide equally among 18 muffin cups.  Bake 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
