Banana Chocolate Espresso Breakfast Cake

OK..  I need to admit something before I continue. I am addicted to Wild Friends Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter and can't stop consuming it!  It all started with my lava cakes and my daily smoothies.  

You can make this recipe as cupcakes, a loaf or what I did - use a cake pan and enjoy with your friends and a cup of tea.

Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Muffins

Every mother must have a chocolate chip muffin recipe! This is my version, and my kids and their friends have had many a dozen of these delicious muffins. You may want to double the recipe and freeze half to have them on hand when needed.

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin

I came up with this lemon poppy seed muffin when I was going through my spices that came in from simply organic and decided to use the poppy seeds. I actually am not a huge fan of them as I hate picking them out of my teeth! However, my husband loves them so these are for him!

I had leftover butternut squash and decided to try out this recipe. I didn't tell him that I was using squash in his muffins and I was so excited that he loved them. If you need to cook your squash you can find the instructions below the recipe but you can also find them in your freezer section too!

Mini-Polenta Muffin Croutons

I make soup at my friends house as she hosted a ladies cooking class at her house. I wanted to make croutons but something a little different.  I decided to make these mini-muffin croutons and each person can crumble on top of the soup.  These were a big hit.

Note:  These are not a muffin consistency as you would consider a "muffin".  These are more of a crouton texture.  Great for a salad or soup!  You can also add some cheddar cheese, chopped jalapeño or even chopped scallions to the batter!

Muffins with Pancetta and Herbs

Muffins with Pancetta and Herbs

Some mornings we just want muffins and a cup of coffee. I am Italian and there is always pancetta in my refrigerator. Using fresh herbs in these muffins makes them extra special but if you don't have them handy go ahead and use dried.

*CHEFS NOTE* A little tip on finely chopping pancetta: place in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm then you will find it easier to chop with a sharp chefs knife.

I have been on a muffin kick lately!  I do live my muffin pan and this recipe makes 12 perfect muffins. I use an ice cream scoop to keep them all the same size in shape.

I also used the enjoy life mega chunks. 

Our friend Joe came over for dinner and he and I were digging into them before we ate my Veal Parmesan which was also amazing.

Enjoy these Paleo Muffins!

What do you do with 1 carrot, 1 apple and some nuts leftover from Thanksgiving!  You make Paleo Morning Glory Muffins! This recipe makes 12 muffins in my Bialetti Aeternum Muffin Pan!  I used an ice cream scoop to make them all the same size.

Truth:  I ate my first one warm with sunbutter spread over both halves (I cut in half to enjoy more sunbutter).  The perfect snack with my cup of green tea this afternoon.  

I used sunbutter (sunflower spread) but feel free to use your favorite nutbutter!
