Sweet Summer.

I love love love drama.

Not my own personal drama.

But I love listening to everyone else’s drama and then giving my advice.

My advice most often consists of telling the person who has been wronged to “not give one flying flip” about the other person and go on their merry way.

I think this has something to do with my obsession with Real Housewives.

Just when I think I have friends or family members who have problems, I turn on Real Housewives and boom!

Their problems take the cake.

I would have to say, however, that watching the Real Housewives of New Jersey is definitely comparable to watching two of my family members have a cat fight.

When it happens, it happens, it’s bad and then five minutes later we are laughing over pasta and meatballs.

Ummmmm…okay, maybe not.

Y’allllllll…how is it July 1st?

The only thing I can think about right now is that my class is over Wednesday, and I am seriously craving a hot dog on the grill, slathered in caramelized onions, with a side of homemade vanilla Bluebell and a fruit crisp.

The funny thing is…

I hate hot dogs.

But yet I am craving one.

Like, I’m pretty sure I could even go for a New York street hot dog right now.

Let’s get real.

When I want something summer-y, I make something w/ fruit.

And throw some coconut in it.

Because summer.

Duh.

These muffins are summer on a plate.

They are super buttery.

IMG_2408

But yet, have no butter in them.

Sorry Paula Deen, we used olive oil in these.

IMG_2410

Poor Paula.

IMG_2411

Oh, and these babies are perfectly sweet.

IMG_2412

But don’t have any sugar in them.

IMG_2415

Just a bit of stevia……like whaaaaaaaat?

IMG_2418

I know, I know.

    Yes…I AM going to be THAT annoying person and ask you if there is ANY way one could replace the 1/2 cup of egg whites with something vegan?

    (ALSO…how many egg whites is in 1/2 cup?)

    Thanks 🙂

    • Chelsy says:

      Zosia, you could try to replace the egg whites with apple sauce or maybe a banana. I think flaxseed eggs would throw off the texture if you used that. Also, yes I made 13 muffins, but I used one 12 cup muffin pan, and then put the extra one in a small cup by itself. There are 2 large eggs per 1/2 c. egg whites.

  2. zosia says:

    one more question…you say use a 12-muffin pan, but your nutritional stats are for 1/13…

    ?

  3. Natalia says:

    I am vegan so I was wondering how can I substitute the eggs and egg whites for something vegan.

    Thank you!

    • Chelsy says:

      Natalia, maybe use a banana in place of the egg, or apple sauce. Flax eggs would make the texture super gummy here and I wouldn’t advise using them 😉

  4. Casey says:

    Could I replace the stevia with honey in equal amounts? Or would I have to add more honey? This looks wonderful!

    • Chelsy says:

      Casey, yes, you can totally replace the stevia with honey in equal amounts 🙂 I have made these with honey and they have come out just fine 🙂 Let me know how it goes 🙂
