Lemon Coconut Poppy Seed Gluten-Free Muffins

There’s a gluten-free and vegan bakery in Toronto, called Bunner’s.  They are famous for their cinnamon buns, and I’ve been dying to go visit to try them.  My personal trainer, Neil, really loves their cinnamon buns, and was trying to get me to go for a long bike ride with the temptation of gluten-free cinnamon […]

Banana Nut Muffins (aka. Ash’s Celebratory Muffs)

The lovely Ash and I were getting together today for some much deserved tea time and a celebration — and as such I totally needed to make celebratory mini muffins. Or “Celebration Muffs” as we are now calling them. I went with banana nut as my flavour of the day, as I had some bananas […]

Kabocha Squash & Cheddar Muffins

Sundays to me are a perfect baking day. You get a baked treat for one of your meals or snacks, and you have leftovers for the rest of the week. There’s nothing like waking up on a dreary & rainy Monday morning and having homemade muffins waiting for you. These are savoury muffins, and a […]

Apple Cinnamon Mini Muffins (Vegan & Gluten-Free!)

Growing up, my Mum and I used to make muffins together. As the stories go, when I was really little (around 2 years old), she didn’t know what to do with me to keep me occupied all day. So we made muffins. I was small enough to sit under the counter without my head touching […]

Cheddar & Chive Polenta Muffins

Guess what I invented? Cheddar & Chive Polenta Muffins: And ohhh are they good. As soon as I had the batter mixed I knew they were good, and all my suspicions were reinforced when they were baking.  Nothing else smells this good baking.  Mmmm.  (As a heads up, they may look done at around 20-25 […]

Millet & Ginger Muffins

I am currently in a breakfast phase where all I want to eat is muffins. Last week they were Meghan‘s Vegan & Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins (yum!), and this week I wanted something with even more fall spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and crystallized ginger are my go-to fall baking spices, and they are great in […]

Gluten-Free Mulberry & Lemon Polenta Muffins

This is a muffin recipe that I’ve been tinkering with for a while, in many different iterations. I love the crunchy texture and bite that cornmeal (polenta) adds to baked goods.  It’s perfect on the bottom of crusty artisan breads or homemade pizza crusts, and I just adore it in muffins and pancakes.  I even […]

Gluten-Free Rhubarb Ginger Muffins

These sweet/tart muffins are courtesy of a few currently converging influences: A recipe from my favourite nutritionist, Meghan Telpner, for a cake I had at one of her cooking classes this year.  Ohhhh, it was divine — strawberries and sweet potato!  Who knew? The appearance of one of my favourite things on the planet: rhubarb!  […]

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Inspiration strikes again, threefold: Whole Wheat Muffins from Mark Bittman!!  For some reason, reading about Whole Wheat Muffins on his New York Times blog made me desperate to make muffins.  Now. With pumpkin. Inspired by all the non-wheat flours in my pantry, I had to try something gluten-free. Meghan Telpner’s Turmeric Tea (like Chai, with […]
