"You see, when Mrs. Bishop made muffins from Mary's blueberries, not only the paperboy, Billy Parker, but the other four people, too, made five people smile, and those five did, too, and after a while - in only fifteen days- love was sent to every person everywhere!"
If we were to do one nice thing for one person and that person did one nice thing for 5 people and those five people did one nice thing for five more people, in 15 days 6,103,515,625 people would have something nice or kindness shown to them. Pretty incredible!!
And, to go along with our story the kids and I made blueberry bread. They wanted to make muffins but the muffin papers were gone and all I have is aluminum muffin tins so blueberry bread was the next best thing.
Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffins/Bread
5 tbsp butter or coconut oil melted
6 tbsp coconut milk or whole milk
3 tbsp honey
3 tbsp rapadura
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp bourbon vanilla
1/2 c sifted coconut flour
1/2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
1 c frozen blueberries
Whisk together liquids and the add the dry. Whisk really well until all the lumps are gone. Stir in blueberries. Pour into a glass loaf pan and bake at 400 for 30 minutes. Enjoy!!
