Enjoy Life Muffin Review
Have you seen these in a store near you lately? I was in the City a few months ago and saw these, read the ingredients, and was very pleased because it wasn’t full of junk. However, I didn’t feel compelled to purchase it since we already have a go-to recipe of our own. Time goes by, and it hits me. Duh! You’re The Allergy Chef. You owe it to the internet to buy this and make the kids eat it so you can write about it on the blog. So, that’s why we’re here today. Full disclosure: We weren’t paid or given this product in exchange for a review. However, it was on sale at the store, if that counts for anything. (yes, still working on my comedy routine)

In addition to the muffin mix, I also used this as an opportunity to use their mega chunk chocolate chips. In general, I don’t use these often, as the kids seem just happy with the mini chocolate chips that Enjoy Life makes. Read More
Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffins
It was late one night, and I didn’t have a plan for breakfast. I know, that’s totally out of character for me. It’s just that, things have been so busy around here lately. So rather than get sleep, I decided to prepare a quick muffin batter. Back when we were getting ready for the Maker Faire, I wanted to have a banana muffin to sell at the event, but I wasn’t able to nail down time to create anything. Now that I needed to have a breakfast for the kdis, this was my golden opportunity.
A little note. I baked a test muffin and had The Papa try it, yes, in the middle of the night. The baking time was 18 minutes, but it was a little dry, and 15 – 17 minutes may have done the trick. I put the batter in the fridge, and went to bed. However, the baking time changed once the batter was being cooked from cold. I share this with you so you’ll know why there’s variation, and you’ll know how to plan your baking.

For Nut Free: Omit walnut/pecan mix, and use a safe non-dairy milk substitute (or cow’s milk if that’s what you drink) Read More
