Well I've been a bit MIA lately. I've been making some life changing plans, so my culinary explorations have been on the back burner a bit. I do have some new recipes in the works though so I'm looking forward to sharing them with you. This weekend I did try out these yummy muffins to share with my fellow Tough Mudder competitors and thought you might enjoy them as well. I did the mud run in Sydney yesterday with about 20 others from my crossfit gym and omg was it hard! 20km of mud, obstacles, trail running and more mud. Needless to say I'm hurting today, my feet just want to fall off and my legs are screaming at me. I'm glad I can say I've done it, but I would never do it again! It was painful. If you have a team to do it with though it is a pretty awesome experience and I'd recommend doing it once for sure. Anyway, hope you didn't miss me too much. On with the recipe.
