Wild Tree Avocado Chocolate Muffin

For the past year I’ve been baking and cooking with grapeseed oil – not exclusively, but “on and off” in pan-frying and baking. It has a high smoking point, so it doesn’t smoke and splatter in the skillet, and I’m convinced its viscous quality helps lock the moisture into baked goods.   As far as health […]

Chocolate Muffins with Coconut Oil

Chocolate Muffins with Coconut Oil

I was in the mood for brownies, but Fuzz wanted chocolate muffins. This was our compromise — very chocolaty muffins, sweet enough for dessert, but not so sweet they’d be confused with cupcakes and rich enough not to need icing. In other words, they’re true muffins and not cupcakes. Just for fun, I used coconut […]

trapeze school

School resumed today, so I guess the holidays are officially over. No more spontaneous trips to the roller rink or mid-afternoon trapeze classes. That’s Fuzz (in case you thought it was me) whose latent talent for the trapeze arts came out yesterday at Trapeze Austin. She’s never been to the circus, but she says she’s […]

Chocolate Muffin

Yesterday I mentioned a crazy chocolate muffin kick. Well, I’m coming off it. I got the results I wanted (for now) and like this recipe enough to share it. Let me preface this by saying it’s easy to make really rich, delicious, buttery chocolate muffins. Obviously, making them tasty and lower in calories and fat […]

chocolate muffin

I like big crowns and I cannot lie. No flat top muffins need apply. When a muffin is hot There’s no reason to cut It up if it’s not high. Sorry for the rap (and thank you Sir Mix A Lot), but muffins with nice tops make me really happy; especially when they’re experimental muffins […]

Chocolate Ricotta Muffins

chocolate Ricotta Muffin

Making chocolate ricotta muffins seemed like the perfect way to use a cup of leftover ricotta cheese, so this morning I did a search for some recipes. Molly Katzen’s chocolate ricotta muffins appeared most often during my search, and while they looked good, a few people complained they had low fat texture and weren’t very sweet. Given those reviews, I decided to make a couple of changes. First, I halved the batch thinking I’d get 6, I got about 8 big muffins.

Spiced Cocoa Muffin Chocolate Muffin

What a great feeling it is to switch on the oven light and see that your muffins have risen up, up, up and have beautiful crowns. It’s especially nice when you’re trying a brand new recipe with flavors you know everyone will love. In this case, it’s chocolate with a hint of spice.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Here’s another recipe using Greek yogurt. These muffins are lower in fat than most and have a some fiber from whole wheat flour, applesauce and zucchini. Too keep the muffins moist, I used a little molasses, but honey or maple syrup would probably work just as well and add a little boost of flavor in […]
