In place of my egg casserole this week I just made a batch of muffins to take into the office. And I put chocolate in them…it was that kind of week, yes it was!
Um, so I also wrecked my car this week. Like I said…that kind of week. But I got a really nice rental and my baby ought to be good to go in about 10 days. One problem, though, because we all know I can’t be trusted with nice things. You know how they always warn you not to smoke or have pets in a rental? Well, they’ve clearly never met me because while I was a good girl and didn’t smoke or bring the animals in the car, I did drive in a couple times (in the dark cuz it’s crazy early, of course) with my morning coffee and muffins in hand. Turns out that when a chunk of chocolate falls on the seat and you sit on it, both your pants and upholstry look like you had explosive diarrhea.
2 Large Yams or Sweet Potatoes
2 c. Almond Meal
1/4 c. Flax Meal
2 t Cinnamon

Wash the yams and wrap in foil. Bake at 450 degrees for 1 hour, 15 minutes and allow to cool completely. Slice in half lengthwise and scoop out the innards into a bowl. Discard the skins.
To the mashed yams, add the remaining ingredients and blend with an electric mixer until smooth.
Spoon batter into lined muffin tins (3/4 full) and bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Makes 18.
