lil' lemon & green tea SOY muffins

What is 1/2 hour to you? Nothing if you're waitng for the muffins to bake, right? To someone who is dying, half an hour might be all the time you have to make an impact in their lives before their destiny is sealed forever. Today, a patient died - 1/2 hr after we assessed him. A quick lunch and when we came back, he was gone. It's SO sad :(
I nearly cried. My heart was so heavy. I can't believe that he passed away just like that. A thought that came through my mind was,

"Be humble and treat everyone special. Focus on them for that brief moment for it might be the last you ever see them."

Anyways, to lighten up, I baked muffins (again! lol). This time, it's a totally different recipe from the one before. This has soy yogurt, maple syrup, matcha, brown sugar, white chocolate...etc. So i guess you can say its cholesterol and lactose-free lemon & green tea soy muffins.

Comments: Friends who ate the wild blueberry muffin and lemon green tea muffin said that the difference between both is distinct. The former is like a snack muffin while the latter is like a breakfast muffin. The reason is because the latter is sweeter. She went on to say that these muffins taste like pancakes with maple syrup!
