LLBalanced Jumbo Morning Glory Muffins

Rating: A-

I love trying Laura Lee's recipes, and I even ordered a Jumbo Muffin pan just to make these.  Here's the recipe if you want to give them a try. They're really good, but I think I was just slightly underwhelmed with the flavor of these. I don't really even know why. I think maybe if I made them again, I would add something else. Maybe coconut extract? They're really moist and tasty though. And relatively healthy. I made mine with almond flour instead of rye flour (celiac disease...duh), added coconut and semi-dried apricots, and they turned out great.  I think I'm just more of a chocolate girl. Haha!

Simple Mills (Takes the Cake!)

Rating: A+

I am so impressed with this brand.  It's so easy to make, and everything I've tried has been delicious. This is the vanilla cake mix, and I definitely think it's better than the Cake Therapy Mix (although the chocolate cake therapy one was really good). Anyway, this mix is amazing, and I probably need to limit how many I buy so I don't start overeating muffins and cake. I bought the Dollop Vegan frosting and really didn't like how it tasted, so I just melted some Manna Butter in a pan and added some crushed blackberries. I liked it, but they taste great on their own with some nutbutter as well. Go buy it!
