Baked Goods

Our collection of Baked Goods recipes have been specially created by a nutritionist. Many are made with wholegrain flours, sweetened just the right amount (never too much) and created with a healthy influence in mind. The No Sugar Banana Bran Muffins are a must-try item, as are Fudgy Adzuki Bean Brownies. Or, give the Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake a go.

make and freeze breakfast bars

I learned something shocking recently. Not everyone loves overnight oats as much as I do. I know. It’s crazy, right? For one thing, the texture, which I find magically creamy and delicious, is not for everyone. Also, being the winter and all, not everyone is into the idea of a cold breakfast. And perhaps most…

single serving chocolate cake

Sometimes portion control is the easiest path to moderation, so today I’m sharing a single serving chocolate cake. Because everyone deserves a little cake sometimes! I’ve been going grey since my early 20’s. I think at around 22 I found my first grey hair and though they slowly trickled in, in the last few years…

peaches and cream muffins

I don’t know about you guys, but I am clinging to this summer like my life depends on it. This time of year seems fleeting and fragile, and I want to hold on to it for as long as possible. Peaches are one of my favourite summer fruits. I believe their lusciousness and fragility warrants…

Today is a big day on The Muffin Myth! Exactly four years ago today I hit publish on my first post with absolutely no idea what would happen next. And what a four years it has been!

almond-pulp muffins with cherries and chia

Remember when we made our own almond milk? Mmmmm, home made almond milk is sooooo good! That pulp though! What do we do with the leftover pulp?! I hate wasting food, so I was determined to come up with a recipe that not only used the almond pulp, but used the whole batch. 1 batch…

coco cocoa banana bread

I read something recently about the relationships between mothers and children, about how children know deeply who their mothers are because they are the only ones who know what their hearts sound like on the inside. Isn’t that just the loveliest thing? You know what else is lovely? Chocolate coconut banana bread. This recipe has…

fudgy adzuki bean brownies

One time while I was at a party that I had made most of the food for, including a few chocolate cakes (this cake, to be specific), a girl came up to me and asked if there was sugar in the cakes. I told her of course there was sugar in the cakes. They’re cakes! Chocolate cakes!…

I run a rescue operation for unwanted bananas. I don’t discriminate against age or colour, if there is a neglected, speckley banana I will give it a good home.

spicy chocolate snickerdoodles

I’ve officially reached the time of year when my diet consists of more cookie dough than not cookie dough. I’ll tell ya, I feel pretty gross. The problem is that last week I baked 500 scones and at least as many cookies for a holiday open house, and there was a lot of, err, sampling…

whole wheat ricotta muffins with cinnamon roasted apples

I intended on posting this muffin as a summer recipe. I dreamed it up as something to do with the precious bag of white whole wheat flour generously handed to me by The Flour Peddler. I picked a small bowl of early season blackberries to carefully fold into the batter. Drove to the egg man,…

happy crackers

Mmmm, crackers. Who doesn’t like crackers? They’re comfort food. They’re convenience food. But healthy food? Usually not. Making crackers is something that has been on my list for ages, and now that I’ve made these I’m wondering why I waited so long. I guess it seemed a bit daunting, but it totally isn’t. These crackers…
