Old friends & Vegan Wholewheat Muffins with orange peel powder

Last Sunday was a good day. I started it with a video-call with 3 of my closest school friends. We are spread across the US – East and West Coast, India and Australia. So mapping the time so it works for everyone sounds like a challenge. But it wasn’t. Because no matter what time of the day or night it would have been I would have been on that call. All of us have been busy with our jobs or small kids and haven’t had a chance to speak to each other, together. This situation while on one hand has increased our workload has also in a strange way taught us to make time – for those who mean the world to us.

I know I will remember 2020 for this. This discovery of how to do that tight rope walk with truckloads of work and yet seize the moment 🙂 Like these mini bundt cakes- very spur of the moment. No plans to bake them. But I had a window of time. And I had almond milk that I wanted to finish. Here it is.

Simple Wholewheat Flour muffins with orange peel powder. Add a wee bit of cranberries just for texture.

Sweetener used – Coconut Sugar.
