We had a fabulous “Soft Opening” weekend! I want to thank all our wonderful visitors that dropped by to enjoy our Spring Celebration with us! This cute couple enjoyed a picnic, others strolled around the garden, many paused to “destress” blowing bubbles with friends & family! Being out in nature is a wonderful tonic to help destress & relax, and that’s just what I experienced this weekend, along with all the visitors. The humming birds were so delightful to watch, fluttering around us, in the warm sunshine & fresh country air 🙂 Heavenly!! I was thrilled that the Pear Orchard adjacent to our lavender farm was at it’s peak beauty for our soft opening weekend!

Spring Cheers!!! 🙂

IMG_0203Just for laughs 🙂 I took this pic of Cas, on his first visit to our lavender farm! Cool dude!

Here is a recipe of my favorite snack muffin that I carry alone with me when I’m out working “on the farm”! I am baking up 2-3 dozen to freeze, then I’m sure to have a high energy, tasty snack after “digging in the dirt” and tending my Lavender Farm! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do 🙂

The combined flavors of coconut, culinary lavender, vanilla, and blueberries give this muffin a delicious, tasty, mouth-watering aromatic flavor that you can’t resist!! Coconut flour is an excellent non-grain alternative, with a mild coconut flavor. The coconut flour and chia seeds add a powerhouse of energy, omega 3’s, protein, and fiber, that will keep you powered as you “dig in the dirt” tending your garden. This recipe is GF and Dairy Free!  Good eats <3

Gently stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients, and then add ground Chia Seeds & blueberries. (It will look really wet at first, then instantly the coconut flour will absorb the liquids as you blend it all together)

Scoop batter into greased or lined muffin tins, filling 3/4 full. Bake for 25 minutes until muffins begin to turn golden brown. I like to insert a tooth pic to check center of muffins, and if tooth pic comes out clean then muffins are done. Immediately remove from tins and cool on rack.
