The other day I was out walking my dog and got a frantic call from my roommate… also out walking her dogs.
all these guys…. ye we have a zoo in our house.
Anyways… so my roommate is squeaking like mad on the phone about a bird who sounds like a cat and nobody will ever believe her and i must come quickly.. bird.. cat… what??!!
I had no idea what the girl was on about. So I said ok ok I am coming….
We have a beautiful green path behind our house and thats where they were. When I got there she was staring up into a tree and said sssshhhh the bird is making a noise like a cat.
I kinda thought the exam period had gotten to her head.
And then I heard a cat mew.
And looked up into the tree and there was this bird:
Every time it opened its mouth a mewing sound came out. My roommate was jumping around like a crazy lady saying:
‘ את קולטת כאילו????’
do you hear??? do you understand whats going on here???? The bird is making a sound like a cat???!!!!
and then it went’ rraawwrrrrrrrrrr’ like a pissed off cat.
We were laughing hysterically and she was saying thank god you are here!!! No-one would ever have believed me!!!!
And then a quick google search told us they bird is a Jay known for mimicry. I felt stupid.. with my zoology degree and all.
Best I just go eat muffins.
So these were originally meant to be cupcakes and then I ran out of time to make the icing.. and because I am a greedy girl who loves to eat I still ate them anyway 🙂
And they were super delicious so I just thought to leave the recipe as it is! With no icing.
for the muffins:
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tbspoon raw tehina
1/4 cup coconut oil
Blend everything together and bake at 180 for 15-20 mninutes
For the filling
Blend raw tehina with dates
Spoon out a hole in the muffin, fill it up with the tehina filling and and put the lid back on
These went down well even with non-paleo people.
