And the forecast is…

Rain…and lots of it. Is “lots” even a word? I mean, I’m not technically referring to a car lot or anything like that. I will go with it. Whatev’s. Anyway, today has consisted of some intense reading for my psych class, followed by an intermission where I decided to make a rack of pork ribs slathered in a yummy barbecue sauce. Holy barbecue heaven! More on that later. That is neither here nor there. Today’s forecast calls for muffins. 
Chai-spiced Banana Blueberry Coconut Muffins, to be exact.
These muffins are everything I want in a cup of chai tea…only with the dynamic duo (well, in this case) blueberries and bananas. Oh, and the ever almighty coconut.

Just think…a delicious muffin spiced with the aromas of a hot chai tea…ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and a hint of cardamom. 

Oh, add some fruits for good measure and 
a bit of coconut and you might as well be enjoying this on an island as you lounge in a hammock under the swaying palm trees.
These are absolutely lovely for breakfast with a cup of chai tea…or a cup of coffee!
