The month of December is all about savoring for me. Really enjoying every minute of every day leading up to Christmas and ultimately welcoming a new year. I like to slow down, reflect, dream, and simply enjoy the moment I find myself in. Instead of cramming in as many things as possible into my day, I’ve been concentrating on doing more things that I love and make me happy and doing them well, instead of running around like crazy and checking things off my to do list.

Peace and Simplicity – I adore you.

I have been trying to take a break in the middle of each day, enjoying a hot cup of tea and sometimes munching on a little treat. Most recently I’ve been loving these muffins. With their coffee cake like texture and gingerbread flavor, I don’t even have to think twice about slowing down for 15 minutes.

These muffins are calling my name and there’s nothing I can do but dive right in. [Read more…]

Croissant French Toast Muffins with Streusel Topping

 French Toast in muffin form. Yep, it’s a thing and you totally need to try it. You might never go back to the way you used to make French toast. It’s da best!

I hope you’re hungry. And just in case you aren’t, consider yourself warned. You’re about to be, especially if breakfast foods are your jam.

Brinner (aka breakfast for dinner) has always been a thing in the Deliciously Yum house. At least once a week, I prepare some of our favorite breakfast items and it’s honestly the one meal I look forward to the most.

Just because I’m not a huge breakfast eater in the morning, doesn’t mean that I don’t adore anything that has to do with the first meal of the day (at any other time ;).

Pancakes, breakfast burritos, cinnamon rolls and the list goes on and on. I seriously love it all and French toast is no exception, especially when it comes in the form of muffins and is a cinch to prepare.

Are you in? Pull out the syrup – you’re going to need it! [Read more…]

Caramelized Banana & Peanut Butter Oat Streusel Muffins

 One of my healthiest and most scrumptious muffin recipes. Complete with Caramelized Bananas, Creamy Peanut Butter and a Streusel Topping.

Guilt-free indulgence has a name. And a very long one for that matter. I tried keeping it short and sweet, but couldn’t get myself to leave out either one of the components. Can you blame me? Caramelized bananas had to be part of the name, I mean we’re talking CARAMELIZED bananas here. Which is quite possibly one of my new obsessions. It’s what happens when you want to make banana muffins, but don’t have any ripe bananas and zero patience. More on that in a second.

Peanut butter, oats, and streusel are equally as dear to my heart, which is why I’m growing more and more fond of the name. I know it’s a mouthful, much like the muffins themselves, but one bite and you’ll understand why they deserve a special name.

I took all of my breakfast wants and combined them into one amazing muffin. Not only was I looking for a quick breakfast on the go, but it had to be satisfying, give me a lot of energy and leave me looking forward to the next day when I could have another.

All of which were met in this handheld goodie. [Read more…]
