Seeduction Muffins

I used to be obsessed (I mean, obsessed) with this bread at Whole Foods called Seeduction bread. It’s the heartiest, nuttiest (or seediest) bread I think I’ve ever had and it’s so so tasty. If you’re not avoiding gluten or grains, I highly recommend it on pure taste alone. You know those breads that are… Continue reading Seeduction Muffins

Go-Bananas Banana Nut Muffins

Ba. Nanas. That's all I can say about these unbelievably, crazy, so-delicious-you'll-go-bananas banana nut muffins. That, and literally, they really are just bananas.

Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

I call these my "grown-up" rice crispy treats. They're the more mature and sophisticated version of the original marshmallow treat. That is, as mature and sophisticated as a treat you lick off your fingers can be... With real ingredients, all natural sweeteners and protein-rich peanut butter, could it be that one of the funnest foods… Continue reading Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats
