Carob-Bran-Almond butter-coconut-cappuccino muffin!

While I was home last weekend, I didn’t waste any time taking advantage of my full kitchen. A working stove and oven? Yes, please. Usually it’s microwave city for me, which doesn’t leave much room for experimentation or creativity with my eats.

I started with muffins! These were great, and mostly store-bought ingredients but it was fun to add my twist on the recipe.

Carob-bran almond butter coconut muffins!

I started with two boxes of mix: bran muffin and a new No Pudge brand on the market, cappuccino! I used the entire box of bran and two heaping spoonfuls of cappuccino brownie mix.

Mixes

Then kept it vegan by adding almond milk, almond butter, and coconut milk to combine:

Ingredients.

I also added carob chips and coconut shavings, yum!

The result was a light and moist, warm, sweet & salty muffin. I know these aren’t *typical* muffins because of the lack of oils and eggs, but I lick putting my own twist on recipes, and I thought they turned out great, even if I did end up picking carob chips out of most of them 😉

Muffins!

Other kitchen concoctions, new recipes:

Mixed cereal bowl w/ homemade jam, carob chips, frozen fruit, nut buts and coconut flakes.

…after the Almond Milk pour..

Lettuce wraps w/ tomato and avocado slices, fat free feta and an aged hazelnut balsamic drizzle,

And a ROASTED dinner bowl! This was veggies, bbq fake meat, tons of spices and bbq/siratcha sauce!

Sweet taters, broc, onion, peas, bbq fake meat strips, carrots, snap peas

roasted @ 400 degrees, seasoned with red pepper flakes, garlic and herb seasoning, s and p and bbq/siratcha sauce

This was good. But spiiiicccccccay!!

Q: What’s the most successful experiment you’ve had in the kitchen?

Off to seize the day, make bfast and study!
