Vegan Banana Ginger Muffins

Preheat oven to 350.

Wet Mix:

2 large ripe bananas mashed

1 tsp. vanilla

2 snack containers of unsweetened, organic applesauce

¼ cup of oat milk (or other non-dairy milk)

3 teaspoons of minced ginger (Ginger People brand is yummy)

Dry mix:

2 cups of unbleached, organic all-purpose flour (I love baking with Bob’s Red Mill)

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1 teaspoon of baking soda

2 teaspoons cloves

2 tablespoons cinnamon

3 teaspoons of ground ginger

½ cup organic cane sugar

1 cup of organic brown sugar

(mix this together well so everything is distributed well)

Slowly stir the wet ingredients by hand into the dry bowl. Mixture should not be runny but also not too thick that it is not easily spooned into muffin pan.

I sprayed a mini muffin container with a light coat of coconut oil spray and baked at 350 for 25-30 minutes. As the muffins were cooling, I sprinkled cacao powder lightly over them.

Story Pitch

This is the basic premise of a series of books I will start to write. I love when a new story idea is born.

Chronicles of the Wainwright Witches 1: Fire Born

Solaine Adams is living her perfect life in the early 90s as she starts her second year of medical school in Detroit…until she gets pulled into an alley after a Nirvana concert by a man named Anslow Vrain. Anslow says he is here to take all her power away from her, a power with which all Wainwrights are born. He also tells her there is something darkly special about her which is why she must ultimately die. The trouble is Solaine does not remember being a Wainwright or of what power or darkness he speaks, and Solaine would like to keep living.

As Anslow sends her on a forced quest for answers she’s not sure she wants, Solaine meets another man, Gray Morgenstern, who swears they are dear childhood companions. Forced to travel down a path of discovery about herself, unraveling her otherwise successful existence, Solaine must also choose her friends and foes amongst these two men and a cast of mysterious and magical characters who have now taken over her life and dreams. The battle between dark and light powers, the choice between science and the supernatural, and her continued existence now rest on the choices Solaine will make.
