Chocolate Energy Bites

These Chocolate Energy Bites are naturally sweetened with dates for a healthy snack. They’ve got lots of protein and healthy fats thanks to almonds, use only 4 ingredients (plus spices), and are incredibly easy to make! This energy bites recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and Whole 30 compliant. 

roasted banana ice cream

My baby turned one last week. Although it was an unexpectedly weepy and nostalgic day for me, Niko seemed to give zero effs about it. I walked into his room on Wednesday morning singing happy birthday, and he shouted something that I interpreted along the lines of, “shut your face and give me that damn bottle,…

raw chocolate raspberry mousse

These luscious little pots of raw chocolate mousse come together in a flash. They’re lightly flavoured with raspberry, totally vegan, gluten-free, and free from refined sugar. My husband and I are not particularly romantic people. We don’t hold hands, and we’re not cuddlers. If you’re a snuggler, power to you. I think you’re weird, but…

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…

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! There have been ups and downs. Celebrations and frustrations. New jobs, and new friends. Broken ankles and broken dishes….

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!…

naturally sweetened chocolate, two ways

Paul and I have travelled at Christmas time every year for the past five years, and so have chosen to forego gifts in favour of experiences. This year is no exception. Last night we splurged out on a dinner out to celebrate Christmas together – dining out isn’t something we do very often, let alone on…

raw chocolate pudding

When I’m going through tough times, I have a tendency to look for the answers in a bowl of pudding. I’m not advocating for emotional eating, but sometimes you just need a little something, you know? And pudding, at least the way I make it, makes for a fine little something any day of the…

naturally sweetened pumpkin pie

This naturally sweetened pumpkin pie uses dates, maple syrup, and nothing else for a delicious Thanksgiving treat! Over the years I’ve had a few pumpkin pie mishaps, some of which I told my family about, and some of which (like the time, when leaving our apartment to head over to my parents house and balancing…

What follows is a list of mainly salads and sides, things that are easy to throw together and transport well, things that will…

whole wheat chocolate chip cookies

If you are in my Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook feed, then you were bombarded by step by step photos on Saturday as I made these cupcakes for Paul’s birthday. Annie suggests garnishing the cupcakes with mini chocolate chips (which, since even regular chocolate chips are basically impossible to find in Stockholm, I didn’t bother looking…

strawberry birthday cupcakes

Birthday cupcakes? Dang straight! The Muffin Myth was launched one year ago today! If I may, I’ll take a moment to thank once again the people responsible for helping me get this project off the ground, those who continue to support me in this endeavor, those who read, and those who actually make the recipes I…

no (refined) sugar chocolate coconut granola

My friend Lindsay taught me how to run. I mean, I was always physically capable, I think, but I had viewed running mostly as something that was necessary only when being chased. Or something conceived by my high school gym teachers, who would  torture us by seeing how many times we could run around the…
