These are the breakfast muffins of my dreams, and if you’re a coffee lover too, probably yours.

My days recently have needed a lot of coffee. I’ve just been going recently. I had finals week, and then graduation, and as you’re reading this (if that’s between 5/21-5/26, that is), I’m at Sasquatch music festival at the Gorge. Five long nights of concert going and shenanigans, it’s bound to be a great time – but I know I’m coming back exhausted. [Read more…]

This Cheddar, Apple and Bacon Waffle is a sweet and savory spin on your favorite breakfast indulgence. Served with sautéed apples and syrup for an unforgettable breakfast or brunch!Well, it’s done. Yesterday was my last day of college classes. All I have left to do now is finish my finals (all of which are take home exams – thank you professors!!) and graduate. That’s it. It’s surreal.

As for the post grad part, it looks like I’ll be heading back down to San Diego again! Doing what is to be determined, but I am ditching the clouds and rain of the Pacific Northwest and heading back to the sunshine. I’m definitely going to miss the rain and the clouds though, and the city, and my college campus. [Read more…]

This Banana Coconut Granola tastes warm and tropical, and is full of crunch from the coconut flakes and pecans! It makes the perfect snack by itself, or mix it into some yogurt for the perfect breakfast.I’m a total granola fiend. Seriously. I go through granola so quickly because I eat it for breakfast, no joke, just about every single morning. My go-to favorite breakfast is Greek yogurt (sometime flavored, sometimes not), berries (whichever ones I have), and a scoop of whatever homemade granola I have at the time. It’s simple, so delicious, and fills me up until lunch.

I really never get sick of it, and that’s probably because it’s a rare occurrence that I make the same granola recipe more than once. Usually, I make some slight variation on one of my favorite recipes that I’ve already posted on here. [Read more…]

These Paleo Banana Blueberry Muffins are moist, sweet, and perfect to pop in your mouth as a quick snack or easy breakfast. They're gluten-free and sweetened only with bananas!Remember the Caramel Filled Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins I made a few weeks back? Remember how I said they’re probably not the best choice for a breakfast muffin, and lean more on the side of dessert than healthy breakfast muffin? These little Paleo Banana Blueberry Muffins are the opposite.

These little guys were bound to be a hit, because I adapted the recipe off one of the most popular recipes on Bakerita – Paleo Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread. It’s sooo good and totally tastes like regular banana bread, hence why everyone loves it. And because this recipe is loosely tied to that one…I had a feeling these would be delicious. [Read more…]

These caramel center makes this easy, one-bowl recipe even more delicious.These muffins aren’t really the kind of muffin that you enjoy as a healthy breakfast. This is more of a decadent dessert muffin, or the perfect Sunday morning brunch indulgence. And oh my goodness, is it indulgent.

Despite all the sweet, delicious flavors going on here, one special ingredient stands out: the chocolate chips, but mostly because these are not any ordinary chocolate chips. These chocolate chips are filled with caramel. Seriously, each little chip has gooey caramel inside of it. These beauties are the product of Nestle Toll House, and the DelightFulls come in four flavors – caramel (mmm), peanut butter, mint, and cherry. [Read more…]

Editing the pictures of this cheesy english muffin bread is making me seriously wish I had some more of it right now.

I’ve been loving making breads recently (you saw my blueberry bagels a few weeks ago, right?) and I especially love it since I’ve discovered instant yeast. Instead of having to proof yeast, which I always stressed out about, you just stir it in with the flour and add your hot liquid. Voila. Stress free! [Read more…]

Their perfection is in their simplicity, and I mean it when I say these muffins are super addicting, flavorful, and delicious.

I first made these as an excuse to bake for a school project for my social entrepreneurship class. My group and I had to participate in a business plan competition as part of the class, so of course when I heard that people got to vote for the people’s choice award, I knew I had to bake something to help sway people’s votes my way.

Phew, long title, but it still doesn’t describe everything I want you to know about this granola. We’ll get into that.

For a long time, variations on this coconut macadamia nut granola and this coconut pecan granola were my go-to granola recipes. But, then I fell in love with dried cranberries and started wanting to cover everything in chocolate, so I tweaked things to create this new favorite, and discovered a new fun trick for making granola extra crunchy and clustery: egg whites.
