The only trouble has been getting that darn pit out! I found a picture of a tool that I want to try.  Let me know if you have ever used a mango slicer!

In my quest to eat more mangoes I made this recipe. 

Banana Mango muffins

1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 eggs
1/3 cup raw honey
1 ripe banana
1 tablespoon coconut flour

2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp chia seeds
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup chopped pecans for topping
1 medium mango, peeled and cut into small squares


Combine all of the wet ingredients, except the mango, Add the dry ingredients and mix well Next add the mango stir until incorporated but don't mush it up. 

Pour into muffin tins. 
(I always use liners) Top with pecans and Bake for 20-24 minutes at 350 degrees. 

Allow to cool completely before devouring!

Yes they were delicious! The little pieces of mango are a wonderful pop of sweetness in this muffin. Next time I might even add more mango!  his little one 

What I learned

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

Even a little bit of sweetness can make a difference.  You never know what a smile can do for someone. An act of kindness can sweeten someones day, a kind word can change someones outlook, a soft touch can bring comfort. 

I work with the cutest kindergarten and first graders.  Some of them come from homes that are anything but sweet. They are starving for a smile, a look a touch.  Giving it to them is a joy for me and world of difference for many of them. 

Yesterday one student showed me how his father disciplines him. This little ones face became twisted and full of anger as he told me of his father's angry words and harshness with him. All I could do was speak softly, crouch down and look him in the eyes and tell him how happy I was to have him at our school.  Then in a sweet moment he wrapped his arms around me. 

We have a choice to make a difference in this world. I choose joy and want to share that joy with everyone I meet. 

Who needs to have a little bit of His sweetness shared with them today?
