Hello.

Millions of MUFFINS

Millions of MUFFINS

Lately I’ve been baking a lot of muffins and wanted to compile a few of my favorite recipes that I have developed all in one place. I tried to create a range of flavors that would appeal to a lot of different tastes and preferences so hopefully there is something for you here! I also kept all of my ingredients whole: no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners, all real good for you stuff that you can easily find at your local grocery store. Some of these recipes are more breakfasty, some are more desserty, but you can eat any of these at any time of the day (I know I did).

One thing I’ve been hearing a lot recently is about people restricting their sweets intake and not eating dessert all the time. I know when I tell people that I eat dessert practically every night they give me a funny look and aren’t really sure how to respond…because eating dessert is bad, right? NO!!!! Eating dessert is delicious and amazing. I can’t go to bed without having something sweet, but I don’t love filling my body with loads of refined sugar every night. Some days I go out for ice cream or have full sugary cookies/cake, but most nights I will bake something myself or go into my freezer and warm up something that I’ve already made. This, for one, saves me lots of $$$, and two, is better for my body. I feel better when I eat something that I’ve made at home because it’s unprocessed and, like I said previously, full of whole ingredients that I can pronounce, which is something very important to me personally. Moral of the story is if you like dessert, eat it. Bake it at home, go out and buy it, whatever you like. It’s not weird or super unhealthy, and we shouldn’t let the so-called “norms” of society dictate what or when we eat (there’s also no scientific proof that it is bad to eat after 7pm????).

Anyways, that’s it for my dessert rant. Now, onto the muffins.

*PS—the gluten free recipes are labeled as so*
