Good food Good mood

My 9 y/o daughter burns between 1,200 and 1,500 calories a day during gymnastics practice.

Oatmeal bread with coconut and dried blueberries

This is a rendition of the oatmeal muffin with orange zest and cherries I posted a week ago. I love the way the sweetened coconut flakes browned up.
