Mini-Chocolate Muffins

Friend tested, mother instructed, and kid-approved — these muffins are as close to those white-pouch mini-muffins as you’ll get out your very own kitchen! Not only that, they’re easy, moist (there’s that word 😏), and done in less than 30👌🏻!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or raisins
  1. Pre-heat oven 425F.
  2. In smaller bowl, combine wet ingredients (egg, milk, & melted butter)
  3. In a larger second bowl, add flours, sugar, baking soda -- then, fold wet ingredients into dry.
  4. Turn in kiwis & mini chocolate chips (raisins, if you've chosen). Don’t over-mix!
  5. Spray mini, or regular size, muffin tin and cook at 425 F for 12-15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean — breakfast, treat, or snack is served!

Açaí Smoothie Bowl

It was one of those weeks where I try throwing everything in a pot and açaí what happens! Bad food puns aside, following my trip to Chicago, I aimed to create a bowl that reminded me of the @leftcoastfood açaí smoothie bowl ...I also happened to be craving something tropical and refreshing -- so this dish was born!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 packet of Açaí, (Trader Joe's has)
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 container of Siggi's Yogurt

Optional:

  • 1/2 cup Kodiak Cakes pancake mix
  • 1/4 cup raisins or dried fruit
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup cashew butter
  1. Blend milk with açaí packet. Then, stir in quinoa, water, and vanilla extract.
  2. Add to instant pot, select high pressure and 2 minute cook time.
  3. When beeping, instant pot turns off. Allow to sit for 10 minutes, then pressure release to release any remaining pressure.
  4. Scoop into a bowl and add Siggis yogurt, fruit, nuts or granola.

**attn** by no means do you need an instant pot to make this or any recipe posted lately. It just speeds up the process!
