Another Wild Rumpus!

Since having J’s first birthday party and posting the details HERE on the blog, I’ve had a few inquiries about sharing some of the cute little details from his Wild Rumpus! I’m so excited to share a couple of photos from a gorgeous mama that also had a “Where the Wild Things Are” inspired party for her cute little guy turning one! She threw one heck of a party, and she used some of the details, including the signs and labels, from J’s party! It is so fun to see other’s creativity, especially when just a touch of the inspiration came from my own! This mama covered every, single detail. Check it out!DSC_6369DSC_6184DSC_6185DSC_6187DSC_6226DSC_6175DSC_6176DSC_6657DSC_6220DSC_6219DSC_8029If you are also interested in purchasing any of the adorable printable signs, invitation, or food labels, check them out HERE in my Etsy Shop!

Zucchini Banana Muffins (SCD Approved!)

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

3 cups almond meal or flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

3 eggs

1 cup zucchini, shredded

1/2 cup honey

2 ripe bananas, mashed

Optional:

1/2 cup raisins or walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together well, and distribute into muffin pan that is either lined with papers or greased well. I like to use butter or coconut oil.

Bake for 15 minutes, then check if a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. If not, continue baking, checking every 2 minutes until you get a clean toothpick! Tops of the muffins should get nice and golden!

Allow to cool a bit, then enjoy! I like to spread a little butter on mine, and if I’m feeling super indulgent, a little drizzle of honey on top! Yum!
