Also you can add chocolate chips for some extra FUN!

Mix all your dry ingredients together. {Flours, flax, baking soda & powder, salt}

 Step two:

Add your wet ingredients to the dry. {Bananas, egg, milk, applesauce, and chocolate chips if you so desire}

Zambia 2013



Dan and I just got back from a trip of a lifetime. We spent one full month in Zambia, Africa. We worked with a missions organization called SIM. We had the privilege of working with the APPLE project. APPLE stands for Aids Prevention Plus Life Education. It's an incredible ministry that is changing lives all over Zambia. The teachers (who are almost all volunteers) go into the schools to teach a "life skills" course. They teach on subjects like friendship, romance without regret, communication, family, sex and aids. The project's goal is to teach about God and to eliminate the epidemic of Aids in their country. We had the privilege to work with the program for one month and it changed our lives. Here are some pics of our month in Zambia!
