Maple Zucchini Banana Muffins

It's muffin time!  Time for me to make some more healthy muffins to snack on, so my husband and I have something sweet to eat with our coffee without feeling guilty.  Last time I made some Maple Pumpkin Banana Muffins based off of the recipe for my Strawberry Coconut Banana Muffins.  This time I opted for zucchini, since that's what was in the fridge this week.  These Maple Zucchini Banana Muffins are just as flavorful as the other two.  I even increased the ratio of wheat flour to all purpose flour in the recipe to make them even more healthy.  Although, you could probably use just whole wheat flour.  The real key is the coconut oil, that's what make them so light and fluffy.

Maple Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

GF Maple Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies by The Sweet Chick

A couple of weeks ago my brother-in-law and girlfriend came down for a visit. I always make sweets for my guests, so I made regular chocolate chip cookies for him and gluten free Maple Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies for her, since she has been recently diagnosed with gluten allergies. Well, turns out my husband, daughter, and extremely picky son really liked them, so I have been baking some pretty much every week for snacks and school lunches. If it tastes good and it’s healthy, then it’s a double bonus.

Blueberry Yum Yum Smoothie


Blueberry Yum Yum Smoothie by The Sweet Chick
I had never heard of a Blueberry Yum Yum dessert until one of my neighbors suggested I make it.  Of course I did.  It's super easy and oh my, it is so delectable.  It's a no bake layer cake made with crushed Lorna Doone shortbread cookies, blueberry pie filling, whipped topping, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and pecans.  What's not to like about that?  I thought it would be perfect to make as a dessert smoothie.  Yeah, I know it's not a healthy smoothie, but sometimes you have to be bad.  You can use low fat whipped topping and cream cheese if it makes you feel better.  Me, I'm sticking to the good stuff.

Candy Corn Creme Blondies


Candy Corn Creme Blondies by The Sweet Chick
Apparently, I didn't get rid of all my Halloween candy.  I found a bag of Hershey's Candy Corn Creme bars in the back of the pantry and I still had a bag of Candy Corn M&M's that I hadn't opened.  The kids already had enough candy, so I needed to use these in some kind of dessert.  Blondies came to mind, because I have never made them, not have I ever eaten them.  Shocking isn't it.  I'm a chocaholic so I tend to migrate towards chocolaty desserts.  These Candy Corn Creme Blondies may change that.

Spiced Butternut Squash Cupcakes

Spiced Butternut Squash Cupcakes by The Sweet Chick

O.M.G. I've been dying to share these cupcakes.  I think these are the best tasting cupcakes ever.  The flavor combinations are superb.  I was playing around with some butter rum flavoring that my neighbor gave me and some fresh butternut squash puree I made, resulting in these fabulous, spiced Butternut Squash Cupcakes with butter rum flavor.  I think I just found my new flavor to use in just about everything.  I was always a vanilla girl, but now I think I am switching over to butter rum.  It's has a slightly sinful taste to it.  I love it!
