Cinnamon Mug Cake

 

Do you ever just go to sleep with every intention in the world of going to your 8am Psych lecture but then your husband accidentally sets alarms for 5:00am AND 5:30am, waking you up both times; when you finally fall asleep again, your husband has a sleep spasm and accidentally flails his arm into your face to jolt you awake again; you decide to just wake up a little later and skip a shower to get to school on time; and you wake up for a last time to your dog literally vomiting on you (he ate too much too quickly -_-), THEN PEEING ON YOU?

Loaded Magic Bars (V + GF)

I wasn’t sure what to title these because I know that there are so many different names for the same bars: magic bards, hello dolly bars, and seven layer bars. But more than name confusion, I didn’t even know if I should call them by their original name because at this point they are WAY more than that. In addition to the traditional chocolate, pecans, coconut, and sweetened condensed milk, I packed in here some peanuts, almond slivers, pretzels, white chocolate chips, and caramel. PLUS, I exchanged the graham crust for a gluten free almond-date base.

But the real star here is the sweetened condensed coconut milk.

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

Let’s firstly send a huge thank you to The Viet Vegan for the delicious peanut butter cup recipe that made these cupcakes possible.

I have made this recipe three times consistently, and it is pretty reliable. I would love to have shared it with you all earlier, but they were just so good that we kept eating them all…

Even with this batch, I made 12 and told Mitch that I needed at least 8 for pictures. The next morning, I had six left. The morning after that (the day I finally had time to take some pictures), I had four sad little spared cupcakes.
