Love Muffins

Spring time: a time for rainy weather, blossoming flowers, and Hallmark cards! Whether you have a love muffin in your life or not, you can still make these delicious muffin recipes that feature easy-to-make purees in their ingredients! Impress your family and friends or whip up a batch for yourself. After all, who says you can’t be  your own love muffin?

If you’re a pumpkin lover:

  • Try The Best Ever Pumpkin Muffins from Lovely Little Kitchen. It uses 15 ounces of pumpkin puree that you can whip up easily in your Baby Bullet! One of the users substituted butternut squash for the pumpkin and, because it was so sweet, they only needed to add a little sugar. Pick your puree and make them your own!

If you’re a sweet potato lover:

  • Try the Mini Sweet Potato Muffins from Weelicious that use 1 cup of sweet potato puree. If you can get that sweet, tender, almost-candied quality to your sweet potato, your kids (and probably you) will have trouble putting these down.

If you have a picky eater:

  • Try these Carrot Muffins from Mess for Less that hide a deliciously healthy carrot puree inside. The top of the muffin ends up being crunchy, while the inside stays nice and moist.

If you’re feeling adventurous:

  • Try Pop Sugar’s Cat Cora’s Kitchen by Gaea’s Feta & Olive Cakes. You just need to grind up a few ounces of almonds to make this unusual and savory muffin work. Just add a dash of feta cheese, powdered sugar, honey and pitted olives. It’s perfect if your sweet tooth is a little more subdued.

However you find yourself spending your spring days, whether it’s indulgently baking, or just spending precious time with your actual love muffin, I’d love to share with you one of my favorite quotes on the subject of love. (If you know me, you know I’m a quote addict):

“Out of love, I made you a cake. Also out of milk, eggs, flour, sugar and vanilla.”
