Recipe: Lemon Chia Seed Muffins (V)

Oh, yes. Another muffin recipe. These remind me of the classic Lemon Poppyseed muffins while growing up; I remember being obsessed with Caribou’s Lemon Poppyseed loaf, with the best part being—of course—the vanilla icing on top. The recipe below is 100% whole wheat, as well as vegan if you use flax eggs. The nuts in the…

Playlist: Dreamy Feels

Recipe: Banana Quinoa Muffins

Another muffin recipe! These do remind me of banana bread, but they have a distinct flavor due to different add-ins. The almonds, of course, and quinoa add a nutty flavor, and the coconut sugar and cinnamon provide sweetness & spice. If you are out of almonds or prefer something else, feel free to switch them…
