Banana Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Muffins

Why am I just now discovering that  canned coconut milk in your coffee as creamer is a gift sent from heaven? Literally. Am I late to the paleo coffee party or what. I literally want to drink coffee all day long now.  I need to find a bigger travel mug.

I ate a chocolate chip muffin over the weekend. And said muffin did not do fun things to my blood sugar.  Shocking, really, I know.  But sometimes a girl just wants a chocolate chip muffin, ya know what I’m sayin’?  So that’s what I’m bringing you today.

But before we get to that, I have some BIG news. REAL big news.

Calm down, I didn’t go on any dates or get a new boyfriend. But let’s be real, we all know that would be pretty shocking news. It’s actually better than a new boyfriend. It’s a new blog!!!! Yep, you heard it right.  I finally made the leap to self-hosted.  Talk about big girl status.  I could not be more excited! The new site will have a new name and everything, but don’t worry, I will keep you updated when it’s all ready! Which could be awhile.  You see the thing is, WordPress is actually extrememly complicated.  Especially the whole design/layout thing.  I’ll be honest.  I have NO idea what I’m doing.  So I’m either going to have to spend endless hours trying to become a web master (is that what they’re called?)  or I’m going to have to enlist some help. But I hear these types of helpers can be a pretty penny.  And we all know I’m a broke college student.  So if there is anyone out there reading this who is a web design/Wordpress genius or knows of one, this is my desperate cry for help.  HALPPPPP.

Okay, okay. I’ll stop sounding so desperate. Now go make these muffins.
