Healthy Banana Oatmeal Muffins with Chocolate Chips

During my late night pinning on Pinterest... I ran across some pins that had me thinking of Bananas Oatmeal and Muffins. Of course, no muffin is complete without a little bit of chocolate. That's when I decided to make:

Banana Oatmeal Cups with Chocolate Chips.

Not only did I want something delicious, I wanted Healthy too! I had to make these NOW. I immediately threw together what ingredients I had for my late night snack and for the kids to have for breakfast in the morning.

Here's what I had to work with... and it made the perfect muffins!
Banana Oatmeal Cups, Ingredients, Chocolate Chip
Here's what you will need:
2 small mashed bananas
1 cup Original Almond milk

10 chocolate chips in each muffin
Above ingredients yield 12 muffins

Purple Roses

Hello There Sweet Friends,
I have a love for color and I love to pull from a beautiful photo. I found this photo as I was wandering through Pinterestland and I would love to give the photographer credit if anyone knows who that is. Aren't these Purple Roses just stunning?...

Birthday Wine Bottle

diy, birthday gift, decorated wine bottle

No need for a gift bag... I'm going to show you how to turn a wine bottle into an adorable personalized gift.

This is what you will need:
Bottle of Wine
Painters Masking Tape
(1) or more cans of Spray Paint

Place your first piece of tape over the name of the wine and wrap it all the way around. Your second piece of tape should be wrapped midways around the neck of the bottle -- just below the seal. Choose a well ventilated area and now you are ready to paint. I chose Valspar Gloss Exotic Sea & Satin Everglade Glen from Lowe's. I sprayed one coat and allowed it to dry for 1 hour. Please peel off the painters tape carefully as to not tear the label. Now apply the stickers and that's it - your personalized wine bottle is ready to put a smile on someone's face.

Happy Giving & Pinning! Pin It
