Matt and I have officially moved! I am so excited that I now live in a HOUSE (first time in a long time), with Matt (best part), and it’s beautiful. We have an avocado tree in the backyard, we have a backyard!, and there’s a trail behind the lot we’re on that is so nice to walk on after work. Oh, and the kitchen is a dream! It has a nice stove/oven that heats things evenly and reliably. It’s awesome.
It’s also inspiring. Last week was our first real week here and I baked up a storm. Every oven is a little different so I figured I should dive in and figure mine out! Starting with these soft, rich peppermint chocolate chip cupcakes covered in a smooth dark chocolate peppermint glaze.
These banana chocolate chip muffins are your classic recipe, made slightly healthier by subbing coconut oil + applesauce for butter and using less sugar! They also have no white sugar and use a mix of whole wheat pastry flour and regular flour. But they’re still super moist, sweet and satisfying.
