Another great breakfast snack from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours, carrot spice muffins.
We’ve got carrot, we’ve got golden raisins, we’ve got pecans, we’ve got toasted coconut, we’ve got coconut oil substituted in for canola, we’ve got Greek yogurt and coconut milk substituted in for the milk (no shortage of coconut, you see). Excellent level of moisture. Success.
I love breakfast.
I don’t mind a ready-made cinnamon bun now and then, perhaps because I grew up having them on Christmas and other special occasions (other holidays featuring elaborate breakfasts, overnight guests, etc.)? One cannot always be rolling out pastry dough. This one is from Trader Joe’s.
Plate and mug from Jars ceramics, stunning glazes from this brand.
Lately I make this kind of pseudo-latte with a base of coffee and about 1/3 c of melted vanilla ice cream poured over the top, drizzled with caramel. [Then I drizzle anything else that seems promising with caramel as well.] Sometimes I’ll add a dash of Monin Hazelnut syrup, if I’ve woken up with a sweet tooth and am feeling really decadent.
