no-bake granola bars

These no-bake granola bars are quick, easy, and endlessly adaptable. Well hello! Some of you might have assumed, given the lengthy silence around these parts, that I’ve been busy having a baby. It’s a fair assumption, given my condition when we last spoke, but unfortunately not correct. Baby Muffin Myth is still baking away, much…

Presumably many of you are heading back to work or school after this weekend, so I thought I’d give you a little something sweet you could pack along with you. These little bars are absolutely loaded with seeds: quinoa, chia, sunflower seeds are the main stars, and flax seeds play a supporting role. The bars…

strawberry coconut super smoothie

The little university pool that I normally swim in on my lunch hour closed for the season about a month ago, so I’ve had to switch to morning swimming before work at a much bigger facility closer to home. Although this change in routine has its inconveniences (I’m totally not a morning person) I’m really…

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…

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Or Happy Friday! Whatever you’re into. As I mentioned previously, Paul and I aren’t in the habit of doing anything special on the 14th of February. This year we happen to be zipping off to Barcelona on the day of love, but it’s for a race, not for romance. I mean,…

pumpkin seed butter

 A few months ago, when it was still lovely and warm and light outside, we had some massive roadwork happen just outside our apartment. It was a bit of a mess, but really, because we drive bicycles rather than cars, we were largely unaffected. We also knew, because this work was happening one block at…

spicy black bean ragout

Hi Hi. Listen, I know I’ve been terrible lately. You should see my dashboard – a graveyard of abandoned half written posts, which, when I find time to get back to them seem no longer relevant. I’m trying to figure out a system that will help me do it all. A full time job, a…

almond butter with vanilla and sea salt

One of the silly things about this land I live in is the nut butter situation. I remember one time being at the supermarket and trying to decide between the ridiculously tiny and expensive jar of creamy peanut butter, or the ridiculously tiny and expensive jar of crunchy peanut butter (it was the only time…

white bean tortilla with piri piri

By the time you are reading this I will have gallivanted around the Cinque Terra, and have probably eaten and drank my own body weight in olives, bread, pasta, and wine. Ahhhh. Did you follow along on Facebook? We’re spending one night back in Stockholm before we head to BC, to the place where my soul lives,…

cottage cheese muffins

It’s been a little while since a muffin recipe has graced the pages of The Muffin Myth. When I bump into someone I haven’t seen in a while and they say, “I love reading your muffin blog!” it makes me think that they don’t actually read it. You know it’s not a muffin blog, right?…
