Hearty Blueberry Muffins

Monday, September 28, 2015
Looking for the perfect snack or breakfast on the go?  These hearty blueberry muffins are the perfect fit!  They pack a punch with protein and fiber along with plump anti-oxidant rich blueberries.


RECIPE: 
(yield 18+ muffins)

Ingredients: 
2 cups AP Flour
1 cups whole oats
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups greek yogurt
2 eggs
4 T. coconut oil or melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup or more of blueberries
1/4 cup of milk or more

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

1. Mix the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.

2. Mix the yogurt, eggs, oil, and vanilla.

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry.  Stir until combined.  Add the milk if needed, sometimes I need to add a little more.  Be careful not to over mix as it will make your muffins tough.

4. Scoop into muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees for 16 - 20 minutes or until done.

ENJOY!

FOR MUFFINS AT HIGH ALTITUDE:
CHANGE THE BAKING POWDER TO 3/4 TSP AND THE BAKING SODA TO 3/4 TSP.

Camping Party Dessert Buffet

Saturday, May 2, 2015
I feel so lucky to have been asked to make a dessert table for Finn's 2nd birthday/ adoption party.  His family is blessed to have him in their lives "officially" and I know they were excited to celebrate.  Quite a journey with a wonderful ending.

Sugar Free Blueberry Scones

Thursday, March 19, 2015
Constant baking for my toddler has got me thinking of ways to make baking healthier.  I am always trying to find ways to alter recipes to be more kid friendly.  Less sugar, more fruit.  Less oil and butter and more of the good stuff.  I know, butter is the good stuff, but not when it's a daily affair.  So when I saw this recipe on my friends blog over at JUDD to the MAX, I decided to give it a try.  These scones are already pretty healthy as is, but I made a few changes and they came out great.


I love blueberries.  My husband loves blueberry scones. WIN WIN.

Rockstar Party

Sunday, February 22, 2015
My nephew Ziggy is a born rockstar.  When he came to town for 2 weeks this month I decided to throw him a big welcoming party to celebrate his rocker status and welcome him to America.  My brother and his family live in Korea and this was their first debut to the USA.  Totally deserving of a rockstar welcome baby party, right?

I had an order this week for a petal baby shower cake.  I was so excited to make something fun and creamy blue!  I have been making so many chocolate cakes, which I LOVE, but I enjoy making different things too.

Floral Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Baking in the winter has its perks.  For starters, I don't have air conditioning so in the summer, buttercream can become a bit of a challenge in an 85 degree kitchen.  Cream cheese icing is also much easier to work with in a cooler kitchen.  Today's carrot cake cupcakes turned out beautifully with crisp cream cheese icing.

Spinach Chocolate Chip Muffins

Saturday, January 24, 2015
I love to bake.  Unfortunately, any time I bake my 1 1/2 year old begs for whatever is coming out of the oven to become his afternoon snack.  He loves muffins, cookies, frosting, cake, etc.  This kid is going to be diabetic before he even realizes what sugar is if he gets to sample all of my baking!


Enter spinach muffins.  I searched for healthy recipes and found a version of these babies online.  I adjusted them for high altitude and added chocolate chips and voila!  An instant favorite.  Want to try them?  I knew you would!  Keep reading for the recipe.
