Keto Snickerdoodle Muffins (low-carb, dairy-free + paleo)

Keto Snickerdoodle Muffins (low-carb, dairy-free + paleo)

The perfect keto treat! Low-carb ketogenic snickerdoodle muffins with crackled tops sprinkled with cinnamon “sugar”. I’ve never forget the first time I had a snickerdoodle.

Gluten-free muffins made with roasted sweet potato and chocolate chunks. Topped with a maple-infused quinoa crumble topping.

Pumpkin Spice Muffin Mounds (gluten-free + paleo)

Pumpkin Spice Muffin Mounds (gluten-free + paleo)

I tested this recipe a bunch of different ways to make sure it was absolutely perfect for you. Originally, I wanted to make coconut flour scones but no matter what I did, the flour just wouldn’t cooperate. The consistency was off. I’m sure it would have all come together had I used almond flour, but…

Chocolate Muffins (gluten-free + grain-free)

Kevin’s Mom, Renee, was here visiting for a 2 week stint before she made her way to Germany to visit Kevin’s sister. During Renee’s time here, we got to celebrate her birthday. Instead of getting her a gift that she’d have to lug around with her on her trip, Kevin and I made a batch…

Cranberry Sauce Muffins (vegan + grain-free)

Cranberry Sauce Muffins (vegan + grain-free)

Like you, I’m not a fan of the gummy muffin. You know the kind; especially if you’re gluten-free, egg-free or vegan. The uncooked center, hard exterior – it’s anything but a muffin. I want that pull apart gluten-filled consistency, the crisp, slightly crystallized sugar exterior and a fluffy inside… now that’s a muffin my friends.

Apple Pie Cupcakes with Cream “Cheese” Frosting

I’ve been watching a lot of Food Network TV since we moved in to our new place. Every time I tune in, Anna Olson is front and center preparing another one of her irresistible desserts. Chocolate ganache, creme brulee, ladyfingers, each recipe more delectable than the last but laden with every single ingredient that I’m…

Dairy-free Cheddar Apple Muffins

Dairy-free Cheddar Apple Muffins

All of the hustle and bustle surrounding the move has thrown a rather large wrench into my daily routine. Basically, my life’s been a ball of inconsistency for the past 2 months. While I enjoy living life on the edge from time to time, I’ve been yearning to create structure to my days and get…

Strawberry Banana Muffins

Strawberry Banana Muffins

When I first started blogging about my gluten-free pursuits in the kitchen, I sucked at making muffins and quick breads. Like… really, really sucked. I’m not cutting myself down in the slightest, just stating the facts – baked goods (other than cookies) were not my strong point. I remember making 4 separate batches of movin’…

Vanilla Pear Muffins

Vanilla Pear Muffins

I’m pretty sure I’ve become obsessed with muffins. It feels like I’ve been posting a gluten-free muffin recipe each and every week. Hmm… I supposed I have been. But wait, these muffins are just as good as the last and they’re grain-free too which is a bonus, right? Perhaps I’ve been drawn to create muffins…

Good-for-You Chocolate Chip Muffins

Good-for-You Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love bringing along homemade muffins with me on hotel vacations. They’re fantastic for snack or breakfast, can be filled with protein and healthy fats (which I always seem to lack when I travel), and even if they get squished during my trip, they still taste great. Generally I rely on a mini bar to…

Did you have a great weekend? Ours was so jam-packed with activities that I feel like I’ve been away from the office in ages. Always a good thing :) Kevin and I attended an afternoon showing of Batman on Friday. We were a bit disappointed in the movie, a view we’re 100% alone on when…

Kevin comes home tonight and as of this morning, I have three nanaimo bars saved in the freezer with his name on them. Now, the trick is going to be to keep it that way for the remainder of the day. Given my track record, I thought it would be in my best interest to…

Rise and Shine Muffins

Rise and Shine Muffins

While visiting London this past November, a couple of colleagues and I quickly developed a morning ritual of meeting at the Starbucks on Berkeley Street before heading in to the office. Since Starbucks doesn’t offer any gluten-free baked goods; and even if they did, I’m not sure I’d be inclined to pass up a homemade…

Grain-free Ginger Spice Muffin Tops

Grain-free Ginger Spice Muffin Tops

The potential coconut sensitivity that I mentioned on Friday = false alarm. Thank goodness. I spent most of the weekend panicking that my love for coconut had eventually led to a sensitivity. (When you eat too much of one thing, especially when you’re prone to allergies, your body can begin to develop a sensitivity to…
