Chocolate Chip Coconut Oat Muffins

Chocolate Chip Coconut Oat Muffins

If there was only one muffin recipe I could make for the rest of my life, this would be it!  These are so SO good and filling but not too dense and perfectly moist and sweet but not too sweet and the topping…THE TOPPING, is beyond.  Loaded with heart healthy oats, shredded coconut, and a smattering of chocolate chips, this muffin is substantial.  One will fill you up – it’s like a bowl of oatmeal in delicious muffin form!

DIY Flavored Coconut Butters – Sweet and Savory

DIY Flavored Coconut Butters - Sweet and Savory
Easy.  Delicious.  Nutritious.  Affordable.   Skip those $10 – $15 jars of expensive coconut butter and DIY it!  I bought a 5-pound bag of organic unsweetened shredded coconut for $13 and made my own jar of coconut butter for about 60 cents!  It’s easy and you can add all kinds of flavorings to suit your condiment needs.  I made a Vanilla Cinnamon version and a Yellow Curry version.  Sweet.  Savory.

St. Patty’s Day Cake

Happy St. Patty’s Day!  I had a St. Patrick’s Day party last night and made this crazy cake:  chocolate espresso guinness cake with avocado coconut cream cheese frosting.  It’s weird.  In a good way.  It’s a very dark, damp cake which makes the avocado-colored frosting really stand out.  Actually, it kinda reminds me of that one 80’s tv show on Nickelodeon, You Can’t Do That On Television…what was it they used to say to get slimed?
