Lemon Blueberry Muffins {top 8 & gluten free}

I'm loving testing out the NEW! Enjoy Life Foods boxed mixes. With simple directions and minimal ingredients to add, I can easily use them to create fun, unique recipes with no fuss. 

This morning I decided to use the Muffin Mix to create some yummy, lemony, blueberry muffins. The lemon adds a nice bright flavor and the blueberries pop for a fresh summery flavor. I like to pop some fresh blueberries in the freezer overnight so they don't turn the batter blue when I use them when baking. 


Lemon Blueberry Muffins

1 box Enjoy Life Foods Muffin Mix
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup + 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup canola oil
Zest of 2 lemons 
1/2 cup fresh blueberries (frozen overnight)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or spray lightly with oil.

Following the directions on the box, combine muffin mix, water, oil, lemon juice and lemon zest. Fold in blueberries. 

Fill muffin wells two-thirds full with batter. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and sprinkle with powdered sugar (optional) before serving while muffins are still warm.

Cornbread Muffins {gluten free & vegan}

During the cooler months, one of our favorite meals is chili. I make a huge batch and cook it all day in the slow cooker. These Cornbread Muffins are the perfect side dish. Actually, they are perfect for a side with just about anything! I also happen to love them for breakfast, drizzled with a bit of maple syrup. Just thinking about it now...I'm going to have to make another batch!

Blueberry Cornbread Donuts {gluten free & vegan}

Well, I finally got bored with sitting around watching TV and decided to get to work on some long overdue recipe posts. Lately, as soon as I feel a little bit of baking/cooking motivation coming on, I take advantage, create a new recipe, and shoot photos. It's the actual posting of those recipes that's been neglected after that. But...I'm going to do my best to get caught up on a few of our favorites so that I can share them with you!

These Blueberry Cornbread Donuts were a fun experiment that turned out really unique and delicious. They can definitely be made in the more traditional muffin shape, but I thought the donuts were a fun and interesting change. Plus, my boys seem to eat things better when they're shaped like junk food rather than their healthier counterparts.

Grasshopper Pie {gluten free & vegan}

My apologies for being a little M.I.A. since around Christmastime, but thank you for hanging in here! What started as a fun winter/holiday break quickly turned into a sickness-filled couple of weeks for our little family. Shortly after the new year began, we found out that we are expecting! Our family of four will be a family of five in early September and we are SO excited!

I have felt pretty awful for the most part these past few months, but I am thrilled to say that I am (finally) regaining my energy and not feeling sick as often. Just in time for spring - thank goodness!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies {Dairy, Egg, Soy & Gluten Free}

I have seen photos of Chocolate Crinkle Cookies floating around the internet the past few weeks and I love how beautiful they look. I assumed there had to be some elaborate trick to making them look so pretty, but once I began reading about them, they are actually super simple! The powdered sugar coating adds a hint of sweetness which transforms the flavor of your ordinary chocolate cookies.

You can really use just about any chocolate cookie recipe. I love making my Chocolate Brownie Cookies. In a pinch, I have also used Immaculate Baking Company's Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough, which I typically keep in my freezer for last minute cookie cravings (mostly for safe school treats quickly, actually). This dough contains eggs and soy. They have a warning on the label regarding the company's manufacturing processes due to being made in a facility that processes other allergens as well. We typically avoid foods/products made in a facility where milk is used, but there are a few companies who label well and are forthcoming with their processes that I do feel comfortable with them.
