Saying Happy New Year with Cookie Nookie Muffins!

 

If you could have any superpower…what would it be?

After having seen Christmas – and this whole year – go by at warp speed…
I started fantasizing…
If I could have any superpower…
It would be the ability to mess with time…pause it, slow it down, rewind it…

Time is something I struggle to master…
It seems to slip by even when I think I am managing it well by making muffins such as these Cookie Nookie ones!

Some people tend to have leftover ham…or, leftover turkey…
But I have leftover
holiday
Since I was a tad cookie-d out…
I opted for muffins…

These Cookie Nookie Muffins are really not all that bad…
With whole wheat, oat bran, almond meal, Cookie Nookie peanut butter and Greek yogurt instead of butter, they are marvelously delicious AND nutritious “cupcakes”

I accidentally dropped in a more than generous portion of Nestle’s holiday chips…
Which might…or might not…quell the need to top them with frosting…

Muffins are healthy? Ha - you haven't seen the way I usually make them :D. None of that fat-free nonsense in my muffins. Life's too short to deny yourself tasty food though, so these would be right up my street!
