Long time, no see but finally I am set up in one place for longer than a few days. I’ve had a fantastic time travelling around and am looking forward to sharing some of my journey with you guys in future posts. You might also have noticed that I’ve been changing the design of my blog and I still am doing work on the posts to make it uniform in the new design so please bare with me as I do the last of my labour of love. Anywho, in the mean time I’d like to present to you my new favourite sweet treat! These muffins are made with cannelini beans which might seem a little odd but it works really well, I promise. I kept seeing sweet recipes around made with beans so I wanted to play around with it myself and after a few failures this recipe was formed. I decided to make them with apple and cinnamon because to me that’s such a traditional and classic pairing and I thought I’d bring something more familiar in with the more unfamiliar bean base. I hope you give these a try and if you do share it with me on Instagram using the hashtag #mygoodeatings, I’d love to see your creations!
Also, last thing! I’m now on bloglovin and if you would like to keep updated with new recipes please use the link below:
