Hippy recipes adapted from Taylor Camp

I wrote a post on the Blog about Taylor Camp Muffins along with a recipe. I added some photographs but I didn't explain in detail what the Camp was all about. If you've never heard of Taylor Camp, you can research it. It was a very Hippy Commune located in Hawaii. The stories and the photographs are quite interesting. I've included the original post at the end of this recipe and I added additional photographs. It was a very Trippy Place but not so uncommon during it's time.
I've decided to add another very Hippy Commune Recipe that they may have made at Taylor Camp. Here is the recipe for The Hippy in the Kitchen's Treats.

The Hippy in the Kitchen Treats:

Here's what you'll need:
1 - 8" X 8" pan lined with 2 pieces of Parchment Paper extending 2" over all 4 sides.

Taylor Camp Muffins:

I named these but I don't think I can take the time to explain it.
