CC Cookie Muffins


Yup, it's a cookie, it's a mini muffin, it was a total toss up in the air, say a little prayer, and hope it comes out right. Seriously now, why do I try to randomly make up stuff when I know full well I'm making it to give to someone as a "get well" baked good. I'm crazy! I seriously think I have a problem. It's easy, print a recipe, follow it word for word. NOT look up a recipe and then change all but one of the ingredients and come up with something totally random... maybe I should start a support group? Recipe tweaker anonymous?

Mini anything are cool in my book and these are no exception. They are somewhat dangerous though, I kept wanting to pop one after another into my mouth, so freakin tasty!!

Im just as guilty, always messing around with GOOD recipes...however its those recipes that turn into our own personalized little creations. Just like these little muffins! They sound SO good and I love how healthy you made them :)

Alright Steph, my three favorite foods are cookies, cake, and muffins. You have combined two of them and I am very impressed. Love the recipe!

April said...

These look great and healthy! I think I will give these a try!

Marta said...

Mini-anythings are so cute! I love the bite-sized treats, they are somehow more satisfying and make you feel less guilty. Though these look healthy enough, so not guilt here! Delicious!

VeggieGirl said...

No worries!! Love the creation :)

These are perfect cute little treats! Love the idea and can't wait to make them!

That's my kind of muffin!! Awesome!! I agree with Marta-- anything mini is always adorable.

Natalie said...

These looks delicious and healthy! My only problem with small treats is that I tend to eat more!!

Anne said...

Those look so good! And I think it's cool that you have enough skill to make up recipes and have em come out great. I definitely don't! Haha

Mags said...

Recipes Tweakers Anonymous...LOL! I'm so guilty of that too Steph.

Great looking cookie muffins!

haha Yea that's the problem with me and mini ANYTHING...I can't help but keep eating them and I think it's OK to eat a whole batch because they're mini! :) They look absolutely delicious!

Pam said...

I love the look and sound of these muffins. I've been using ww flour in mine lately, and I love it.

Astra Libris said...

Oh my goodness, SUCH an amazing recipe! You're brilliant! Chocolate chip cookie muffins = SO COOL!!

I'm right there with you in recipe tweakers' anonymous... :-) It's so much more fun to tweak a recipe than just follow along, isn't it? :-)

Mini anything is very cool you're right! :D How adorable and I bet they were really well received :)

Megan said...

Looks like an experiment gone right!! And I'm all about the minis!

Jeanne said...

If no one tweaked then where would we be? You gotta try new combinations to see if it's going to be good. These look great!

I love your "healthification" of treats. I wanted to make a treat for a friend training for a marathon - something nutritious and filling. Is there something that you could recommend from your recipes that I could make and post on my blog?

Thanks!

Make them into bars instead of cookies (update at the bottom of the post about it) and they are the perfect filling snack that will fuel anyone through a workout!
