Recently, I have been finding myself scouring the kitchen for a little snack that didn’t involve ice cream. I found some all-too-ripe-bananas, so naturally, banana bread was calling.

Date-Nut Bran Muffins

I used to eat plain nonfat yogurt almost every morning with fruit and granola, but ever since Greek yogurt stole my heart, I haven’t looked back.

Sorry, I’m not sorry.

Easter Ginger Carrot & Zucchini Breakfast Muffins

by Chrissy



With Easter coming up, it’s the perfect excuse to make these extra-ordinary breakfast muffins! They are so tasty and super healthy, any house guest would be glad to start the day with a cup of joe and freshly baked Ginger Carrot & Zucchini Muffin. If not, they can find the front door…just kidding, that would be mean. But seriously, sometimes a light breakfast is the way to go, especially when that Easter ham or lamb dinner is … Read more...
