7:37am

Let’s just say, hypothetically, that it’s the morning of your son’s snack day at school. You’re making banana chocolate chip muffins, which may be one of the greatest snack day switcheroos in history as they contain ground flax and whole wheat flour, no eggs or butter, and only about 1 tbsp of finely chopped up chocolate, yet they taste like dessert. You’re doubling the recipe to meet your quota, and shortly after you slide the first tray into the oven, it suddenly hits you why the recipe didn’t make quite as many as you’d expected. You’ve doubled everything except the flour.

After some fierce internal swearing, you could conceivably retrieve the muffins from the oven where they’re barely warm and scoop them, one by one, back into the mixing bowl. All the while, you’d probably be praising silicone baking cups and cursing your irresponsible math skills.

I might be going out on a limb here, but if this were to ever happen to you, I’m going to guess that it’s going to be just fine. So don’t panic.

In other news, Hot Wheels just ate his third breakfast. We think he might be turning into a hobbit.
