beautiful day for a bike ride to bulk barn

got some fun health/bulk food stuff and then i made muffins! :)

dairy-free hemp granola cranberry date muffins:

1 cup 'hemp seed granola' (found this at bulk barn, its essentially just oats, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds)
3/4 cup oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
3 tbsp honey
3/4 cup soy milk
2 tbsp natural peanut butter
6 frozen or not strawberries, halved and stem removed. (or 12 full ones whatever)

preheat oven to 350
mix together granola, oats flour, baking powder, and cinnamon.
mash bananas and add to bowl. add cranberries and dates and mix into oat mixture.
mix together honey, soy milk and peanut butter. add to mix until well stirred.
spoon into a lightly greased 12-muffin dish. top with a strawberry.
bake in preheated oven for 20mins ish.

i also made really good sweet-potato pizza:

curried sweet potato pizza:

2-3 sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 large onion (sliced)
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 pizza dough
4-5 cloves garlic (chopped)
2 cups mozzarella (grated)
2 tomatoes, seeds removed and chopped
1 handful cilantro (chopped)

toss the sweet potatoes in curry powder and olive oil. bake in 400F oven for 30 minutes until tender.
meanwhile, melt butter in a pan. add the onion and cook on low until caramelized, about 30mins. add the curry powder and stir until fragrant.
prepare pizza dough on a greased pan. sprinkle with chopped garlic. spread the onions over the dough evenly. top dough with sweet potatoes, tomato slices, and cheese.
bake in 400F oven until dough is cooked, about 20mins. top with cilantro.
