Banana-Coconut Blueberry Muffins | Attempt II

The flavour of these are amazing.  They are so moist and have an abundance of juicy blueberries in them. However, I seem to have lost some of the “muffin” quality.  Despite reducing the amount of yogurt,  somehow these were still extremely moist.  So moist that I could not safely store them on the counter, because… Continue reading Banana-Coconut Blueberry Muffins | Attempt II

Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

I now consider this recipe a success. The first time around, the muffins were good…but rather dense and heavy. To improve the fluffiness of the muffin, I used greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt (which reduced the amount of liquid in the batter) and omitted the milk altogether.  I also whipped the egg whites and… Continue reading Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Then I realized: I have 2 fresh lemons.  Why not make something special with them?  Even better, I also had poppy seeds,… Continue reading Recipe-in-Progress: Honey-Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Vanilla Chai Latte

I did not used to be a tea-drinker. I still do not drink tea very often, but I am working on that.  One of my favourite has become chai tea.  I had been working on finding the best tea (in tea bags) to buy, but then I thought: why not just make my own? I’ve… Continue reading Vanilla Chai Latte

Toasted Coconut, Chocolate, and Apricot Granola Bars

This is rather similar to the Apricot-Pistachio Granola that I made several months ago. This time, I wanted to make bars instead of loose granola.  Also, I decided to up the coconut flavour and substitute in chocolate instead of pistachios.  (Substituting in chocolate is ALWAYS a great idea, right?) Um, for as much guessing as… Continue reading Toasted Coconut, Chocolate, and Apricot Granola Bars
