Quick breads and muffins are 2 of my most favorite things ever! So when I saw this recipe over at Eat the Weeds, I knew I just had to try it! I made a few changes (really, when don’t I?), used muffin tins to bake them, and 25 minutes later, voila! – dandelion muffins!
Ehh, they’re not really muffins. They’re definitely very much on the bread side of things, but slap some raw honey across their cute little muffin-tops and a sprinkle of cinnamon, and you’ve got yourself a yummy mid-morning snack 🙂 …or an afternoon snack…or a midnight snack. Yeah, I’ve been snacking LOL 😉
I used raw honey and coconut oil to replace the honey and oil that’s called for in the recipe. I also added in some vanilla, cocoa powder, and coconut flakes for some texture and sweetness – excellent choice, if I do say so myself!
There’s really not much left to say about these, so I’ll let you peruse through the lovely pics…I think I spent more time photographing these than I did baking them LOL. Anyways, here you go… Enjoy!
