I have TOTALLY been slacking with posts. I didn’t even post my 12th cupcake for the 12 cupcakes of Christmas!!!!!! Ah!!! I told myself I was going to be productive and post throughout the holiday….. well, obviously that didn’t happen.

My 12th cupcake was a cupcake wreath. You could use any cupcake you want to make this. All you need is 12 cupcakes (of your choice), and vanilla buttercream or cream cheese frosting dyed green. Melted red chocolates (to make into a bow- I slacked and didn’t do that) and “fun” sprinkles as I like to call them. (aka those different colored sprinkles)

You can find any cupcake recipe on my blog or the internet.

Here is where you can find my vanilla buttercream and here is where you can find my vanilla cream cheese frosting!

Here is a tutorial on how to make chocolate garnishes!

Ok, let’s get to the actual point of this post. These super yummy and healthy (yes!!!! healthy!!!!) banana peanut butter muffins. The only unhealthy thing in these is the all-purpose flour I used. I should really invest in some other flour.

These make for a great grab and go breakfast. They are packed with protein (peanut butter + greek yogurt + an egg), they have no sugar in them (Truvia Brown Sugar baking blend!!!) and they have ground flaxseed (hello, superfood!)

A note for when you bake these: I would just grease the pan instead of using muffin liners.

If you do use muffin liners, be sure that the muffins are COMPLETELY cooled before peeling them off. I was too anxious in this picture and it came off on the liner.

Here is what you need to make these delicious muffins!

  • ok... you guys... kombucha margaritas!!! I combined two of my favorite things (kombucha + tequila, duh) for #nationalmargaritaday and the result was this guava jalapeño margarita and possibly one of the best margs I’ve ever made.
