Guilt-Free (well, less guilt) Whole Wheat Muffins

Feb 25, 2019blog, Popular, Recipes0 comments

I’m all about taste, so most of my dessert recipes use the good stuff i.e. sugar, oil, white flour, all that is evil in today’s world.  Hey, there is a time and a place for everything -no one really wants whole wheat- low fat- sugar free birthday cake after all.  But obviously you can’t eat birthday cake everyday, even the mad hatter would agree.  So I like to make healthier options to satisfy the sweet tooth and not have to feel guilty about it.  I have a line up of muffins that I like to make and keep my freezer stocked with.  The kids love taking a muffin to school and I like that they are still eating right.

This year I used a couple of my favorite muffin recipes to create the concept for this Brunch N Much Mishloach Manot arrangement.  I wasn’t reinventing the wheel or anything, just offering a low guilt sweet option to treat your loved ones in Israel.

 I am not one to be secretive about my recipes- I’m always happy to share with the world.  So, here are some yummy recipes for you to try.  And feel free to pass it on!

I don’t know about you, but my brain is always thinking of Purim.  I may see a cute container or dish in the summer and I think, “How would I use this in a Mishloach Manot arrangement?”   So, I’m always on the lookout for new or interesting ways to present food. I...

Gourmet Hamantashen- Part 3 – Brownie filled hamentashen

As far as hamantashen dough goes, I love to use Susie Fishbein's sugar cookie recipe with a variety of fillings.  This year, I tried something new and it was a real hit with my testers (read: my kids and the seminary girls that we had over.)  Try them, I...
