Strawberry Muffins

5Ks are not my favorite.  I don’t know why I thought I wanted to run one on Sunday, but I went to sleep really nervous on Saturday night and was even more stressed about it when I woke up.  I tried to tell myself I could just run it […]

Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

A couple good things happened recently. Most importantly, I ran 4 miles with some of my favorite people last night and had NO hip pain! I think the obsessive foam rolling, one-legged squats, and stretching every chance I get really have been helping. We followed it up with grilled […]

Banana Espresso Chocolate Chip Muffins

It’s been a little rainy lately. Rain makes me want to run (I had a delightfully soggy 4.5 mile run yesterday at 9:46 pace…I’m getting faster!) It also makes me want to bake. I made some Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. They disappeared far too quickly. Apparently the rain made Mike […]

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

So, I have a one-week-old already. WHAT?! The first few days were a complete blur of feeding, changing, and very sporadic sleeping. My parents were here all week, and Mike was home from work, so I really didn’t have to do anything other than hang out with the cutest […]

Glazed Doughnut Muffins

I knew these were a winner the minute Mike took a bite (without knowing anything about the recipe) and said “Wow this tastes just like a doughnut!” Not only was he impressed with their doughnut-like quality, he had no idea that they were vegan and whole wheat. Pretty awesome […]

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

First it was cupcakes, then it was Cheesecake bars. Seeing lemon and blueberry together, and then walking into Trader Joe’s to find they finally have the big packages of blueberries again (and from the USA, not Chile!) made it impossible not to make my own lemon and blueberry recipe. […]

Persimmon Muffins

I haven’t eaten a persimmon in at least a few years, so I’m not sure why I decided to buy 3 hard-as-a-rock hachiya persimmons at the store the other day. As soon as I brought them home I started looking for recipes, but immediately realized it would be days […]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Thanks to Veterans Day, I did not have to be at school today. I decided it would be a great opportunity to try my hand at being a housewife! First I packed a nutritions lunch for my hard-working husband. Then I went to Target and bought some new boots […]

Chocolate Chip Muffins with Peanut Butter Swirl

I feel like muffins come in 3 categories. Healthy, Seems Like it Should be Healthy, and Let’s Be Honest This is Actually a Cupcake. These fall into the last category, but sometimes life just calls for ridiculously indulgent treats for breakfast. I made these for my usual Friday take-to-work […]

Vegan Spelt Banana Muffins

Mike and I recently faced an incredibly difficult decision. He had a great opportunity at one end of the state and I had a great opportunity at the other end. Either place we moved, one of us would be giving up a lot. We agonized for hours. Then we […]
