No, this isn’t a food blog and I’m far from competing in the fury filled kitchen on the next instalment of Top Chef Canada, but these delicious little muffins have saved my carb loving ass so many times in the midst of craving something decadent and sweet, without consuming a copious amount of sugar, which is a huge win for me. My love of baking and cooking really started to diminish as I began to realize how horrible literally everything is for you these days, so I’ve really had to work on refining, testing and modifying a lot of the recipes that I love to make in order for them to agree with my sugar absorbing genetic makeup. Everyone I know always asks me for the recipe, so I thought I’d share it here…so, enjoy! Or just go to Tim Hortons and get yourself a fat filled fruit explosion of happiness….whatever!
