  • Banana Oat Muffins

    I have always been a huge muffin lover. When I was in Teacher’s College I used to buy a coffee and a muffin (almost as big as my face) at the campus café. It was total heaven on earth. There was another café near my practice teaching school (on the east side of Vancouver) and they sold muffin tops, and the best coffee. I’m not kidding, the best muffin tops in the world.  Who doesn't love a muffin top, as long as it's on a muffin and not a waist! These Banana Oat Muffins are pretty ...
  • Pumpkin and Pear Streusel Muffins

    I’ve been on a major pumpkin kick lately.  It seems I just can’t get enough of pumpkin.  And since it’s pumpkin season, it seems to be the one vegetable on everyone’s mind (or is it a fruit?). Pumpkin is jam-packed with vitamins, nutrients and anti-oxidants.  Not to mention it’s low in calories.  Sounds like a perfect veggie to add to just about anything!     This is a perfect Fall muffin.  When I first created it, Bartlett pears were at their peak.  If ...
  • Oat, Almond & Date Muffins

    I am hosting this month’s Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free and I decided to choose a Springtime Brunch theme. I love brunch. It’s my favorite meal to host. I like to load the table with fresh fruit and veggies, granola, cinnamon buns, quick breads or muffins, and other delightful breakfast-meets-lunch treats. One brunch staple you can’t go wrong with is the beloved muffin. I love a good muffin and I am always playing with new variations in my kitchen. My Oat, Almond and ...
  • (What’s The Story) Morning Glory Muffins

    Liv and I baked side by side for the first time this weekend. Prior to this, I've mixed flour at the counter and she's mixed flour and water at her little red table.  We've both been completely happy this way. But Saturday I asked her if she wanted to bake with me - she was thrilled.  Livvie will be 2 at the end of October.  She's more than ready! And she did a great job. There were only a few accidents along the way. It was so much fun and so cute!  It took me back to Callum's ...
  • Quinoa Banana Muffins

    You will thank me for these muffins, so hurry up and get the ingredients so you can make them! I'm on a bit of a quinoa flour kick right now.  Might be because I just spent $80 on a gigantic bag! You have to be careful when adding quinoa flour to your baked goods - they can quickly get a bitter taste (in my opinion).  Some people don't even like the taste at all! But quinoa is so good for you. It's irresistible! I've been using quinoa flour in my bread lately (replacing the ...
  • Gluten-Free Buckwheat Carrot Muffins

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. I need a chocolate detox. Ever since we ate that Fat Pants Cake I have been in major need of a little chocolate break (I can't believe I just wrote that but it's true). That cake was divine but it overloaded me just a wee bit!  So much so, we haven't finished it off.  It's that sweet. Luckily, my good friend M.C. gave me a great recipe; it's the perfect recipe for chocolate detox. ...
  • Easy Oatmeal Muffins – GF and Vegan

    I adore muffins. So do my babes.  We like to make mini-muffins as often as possible!  There's nothing cuter than Livvie's little hand wrapped around a muffin.  So sweet.  If I could, I think I'd make them for breakfast every day. This is a recipe I've been making for years.  It's adapted from a Taste of London (Ontario) Cookbook we bought.  I've made it successfully with all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, spelt flour, and of course gluten-free flour blends.  Here's the GF version ...
