If I’m talking about “a few of my favorite things”, I certainly cannot forget my fix of banana bread desserts! I’ve mentioned before that my favorite type of sweets are muffins and coffee cakes; they are always the tasters I take the most of at Trader Joe’s! Unfortunately this week marked the end of winter break, so I decided to bake some banana muffins for advisory to help ease back into the school routine. Continue reading

What’s better that celebrating a day off of school than with a yummy, fresh-baked breakfast?! Simply whip up this super easy muffin recipe for a delicious breakfast treat that’s available to-go!

Single Lady Blueberry Muffins (Healthy!)

Chocolate Covered Katie is quite possibly one my favorite food bloggers. EVER. She bakes healthy and guilt-free vegan desserts that still taste fantastic! I use the non-vegan versions, though, because I think they taste richer and more authentic. Because I absolutely love her baked oatmeals, I decided to try her “Single Lady Cupcakes” for an afternoon snack. Muffins are one of my favorite desserts, and I like blueberry muffins even more, so this recipe was my soulmate! The muffins are fluffy, delicious, and best of all low-cal! Enjoy!

***NOTE: You can put whatever you like in the muffins, or leave  them plain. Also, the recipe is designed to make one huge muffin, but I split it up into two medium sized ones instead.
