Paleo Banana Muffins

banana muffin

With one browning banana sitting on the counter, I set out to find a muffin recipe so that I could have a delicious breakfast pastry. I came across this banana nut muffin recipe on PaleOMG and thought I’d give it a try. And I’m so glad I did!

I’m reposting the recipe, mostly so I can save it for myself because I am definitely going to make these again (like, tomorrow)! The two changes I made were using crushed almonds instead of walnuts, and using sugar-free chocolate chips. Oh, and I cut the recipe in thirds since I only had one banana, but it still made 6 muffins!

Banana Crumb Muffins


I always buy bananas at Costco because they are so darn cheap, but as it turns out, I can never finish all of them. With my extra bananas, I decided to make banana muffins and found this lovely looking recipe on Allrecipes.com.

They are so yummy that I have already eaten two!

Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Vegan Carrot Cupcakes


Here’s a new challenge for you: make a cupcake that’s healthy! This is exactly what I set out to do, and it was definitely challenging, but that’s what I love about baking! I was going to invent my own recipe by combining a few vegan and gluten-free recipes, when I stumbled across this one on the internet which was exactly what I was looking for.

Well, I was going to include a link to the site, but it looks like they have failed to pay their hosting bill! You can find the original recipe at the end of this post.

Coffee Cakes

My family is getting together tomorrow morning to watch the football game. As usual with me, I consider this an excuse to bake something so I decided on coffee cake since it will be in the morning.

I did a lot of recipe hunting and wasn’t satisfied with what was out there because some recipes called for cake mix as a recipe (lazy!) and others called for sour cream (eww) so I finally ended up with this basic coffee cake recipe on cooks.com.

This is my altered version of the recipe (I added applesauce and vanilla to the mix) and rather than putting the mixture in a cake pan, I split it up into cupcake liners.
