I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely love a good crumb muffin; Whether it’s an old fashioned cinnamon crumb muffin, or one that’s been loaded with juicy seasonal fruit – I am always game to devour one.
Soooo this happened… I don’t really know how it happened… but it happened, and I am definitely not sorry.
At first, I was just planning on posting this No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream for you guys… but then I made a batch of double chocolate muffins (because it was the middle of the week and I needed chocolate), and just as I was about to stuff my face with a muffin, I had a thought… warmChocolate Muffin + melty Strawberry Ice Cream? YUP!
Generally I am not a person who claims to know a lot about life. In fact if you asked me for advice about any particular subject in life, I would probably tell you that I am not the best person to ask. I’m twenty-six years old and I feel like I am in a constant state of learning when it comes to the everyday ups and downs of life. I make mistakes, and my mind feels like it’s changing all the time; So for the most part I am careful about making statements about what “I know” to be true in life.
That being said, if there was one thing I think I can say that I know for sure in this life, it’s that no matter what the situation, a freshly baked muffin always makes me feel a whole lot better. Do you feel the same way? Or maybe in your case it’s not a muffin – maybe it’s a chocolate chip cookie or a buttery scone or a slice of banana bread or a bowl of pasta.
Whatever the dish may be, I truly believe that when good food is prepared with love from the heart, it has the power to make the world feel a whole lot better; Even when we are feeling our most vulnerable or defeated. Do you guys feel the same way?
Sometimes you just really need a good chocolate muffin. You know like a super moist, fudgey muffin, loaded with good quality milk and dark chocolate chunks. Are we on the same page here?
So here’s the thing these muffins are so chocolatey and delicious, that they could basically qualify as a dessert – however, because they are a “muffin” it is therefore perfectly acceptable for you to eat them for your breakfast. Ergo – you get to eat chocolate for breakfast and feel perfectly okay about it… (not that I think you ever need a legit reason to eat chocolate for breakfast).
Friends! I Keep promising you that I will be keeping up with more recipe posts & I feel like I keep letting you down!
I can’t tell you all how much I love having you request recipes when I post photos to instagram & I really want to do my best to post them quickly for you, but sometimes I really just don’t know where the time goes. But it was a rainy Vancouver day today, so we had a nice cozy day at home, giving Cole & I some much needed time to catch up on some things we have been putting off.
I have a serious soft spot in my heart for a good, classic chocolate chip muffin. Just the thought of sitting down with a warm, chocolate chip muffin and an ice cold glass of milk gets me all warm and fuzzy inside.
I guess chocolate chip muffins just have a way of bringing back happy childhood memories for me because when my brothers and I were still little, and my mom had to bring us along with her to the mall, she would always reward us with a special treat at the end of our trip if we were well behaved while she did her shopping. The kind of treat would change depending on which mall we happened to be in on a given day, but there was one mall close to home that used to have the most amazing muffin shop in the food court that she would often take us to.
Why hello there friendlies! I am so excited to announce that this recipe post is my first official contributor post to the Tastes of Lizzy T website! Eeeps! I was so nervous about my first contributor post, but at the same time so very, very excited!
I was so humbled when I was asked to be a 2016 contributor to Tastes of Lizzy T among so many other talented food bloggers, so I am so incredibly grateful to have been included. And if you haven’t already checked out her website, you need to asap. There are so many drool educing recipes it’s seriously unreal, so please go and take a peak if you haven’t already <3
Uhmm yeah, you read that correctly – I said Peanut Butter. Banana. Chocolate Chunk. Muffins… Yeah baby.
Now I know what you’re thinking… “enough said” – am I right? I mean honestly, the title says it all. If I was reading this post title on another bloggers site, they would have had me at peanut butter – no further explanation needed.
Are we on the same page about peanut butter here? For me peanut butter has never needed any kind of justification. But I guess that’s just because I am a peanut butter addict. Seriously, if a group called peanut butter addicts anonymous existed, I would be a member.
