Hello, Tuesday. How was everyone’s Mondays?
I was pooped after a full day of teaching 8th grade PE. We just started a dodge ball unit. Yeah…
For breakfast I polished off the last of these banana bread muffin bites, along with some cottage cheese and OJ. It was kind of a thrown-together kind of breakfast, but I love the convenience from munching on these muffin bites on my way out the door.
I found the recipe on Angela’s vegan food blog: Oh She Glows. I’m not exactly vegan, but I find myself on her site often when looking to fill a sweet tooth the clean-eating way!
Banana Bread Muffin Bites
In a food processor or high-powered blender:
- 2 bananas
- 1/2 c dates (be sure to soak in water for at least half an hour before blending!)
- 1/4 c coconut oil (can substitute apple sauce)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- a couple pinches of salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 c oats
Mix in chocolate chips and additional 1/2 c oats. Scoop into 1.5-2 inch mounds on parchment or foil-lined baking sheet and bake about 17 minutes @ 350-degrees, or until golden brown on bottom.
And there you have it. A quick, out-the-door breakfast snack for the busy work week.
In a tupperware, ready to roll in the morning.
I was reading this morning in Hebrews 10. Paul was talking about the new covenant that God made with His people. Regarding our sin, God says in verse 17:
I will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds.
-God, Hebrews 10:17
“I will never again remember…”
We’ve all heard the saying: “Forgive and forget.” It’s meant to imply that in order to forgive someone, you need to forget that they have even wronged you. But so is not the case with God. He doesn’t “forget” things. He’s a God of justice, not a judge that looks the other way when it comes to sin.
So here’s what makes Hebrews 10:17 so powerful: God doesn’t forget our sin. He chooses to not remember it. There’s a difference.
QUESTION OF THE DAY
How much more powerful is “choosing to not remember” than “forgetting?”
