Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

June 30, 2017
Do you love recipes that are easy, cheap, and healthy?  This muffin recipe is frugal, sugar-free, and dairy-free.  It's also delicious!  My entire family loves them and I make them year round.

The ingredients for the muffins are staples that I almost always have on hand:
1 1/2 whole grain pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Cup almond milk
1 egg
3 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons Dairy-free butter
2 Tablespoons applesauce
1/2 Cup pumpkin

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  I coat my muffin tins with coconut oil.  

In large pan, stir together flour, baking powder, and baking soda.

In small bowl, stir together milk, egg, honey, butter, applesauce, and pumpkin.

Combine wet and dry ingredients.  Pour into muffin cups.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Toothpick should come out clean. 

I hope you love these muffins as much as we do!  Feel free to substitute the pumpkin with bananas!  It works just as well.

Frugal Summer Fun

Frugal Summer Fun

June 29, 2017
How are your summer vacation plans coming?  If you're like me, you haven't made them because of financial reasons.  We had thoughts of a beach trip, but hotels on the beach are so pricey!  This type of trip would need to be in the off-season to be affordable for our family.

What are some good ways to have summer fun without spending much money?  Here are a few ideas  that I have found:

*Check your local Park & Recreation Dept: Classes in almost anything that you could think of,  many are free or cheap

*Public libraries offer free programs: book clubs, music programs, volunteering, and more

*National Parks: Free days are sometimes available, cheap fun, lakes, camping, picnics, etc

*Day trips: check with your local tourism board or online, explore your area for museums,  parks, arts, sports, tours, concerts, and outdoor movies

*Whatever interests you or your family can be fun.  If you love baseball, look for a local game.   Even if it's just a free kid's game, it can be exciting to go cheer on the children.  Finding a  picturesque park and taking a picnic can make a beautiful memory!  

It doesn't take a lot of money to enjoy your summer.  Don't fret over not being able to make huge vacation plans.  The best vacations are the ones where you smile, relax, and don't have credit card debt.
