Skinny Chocolate Cupcakes

Sometimes the only fix for a sweet tooth is chocolate. I suppose, on rare occasion, chocolate desserts and sweets are not the answer to every single problem we face (should this happen to you frequently, consult a doctor immediately). For me though, I tend to go towards chocolate desserts more than fruity ones. This post is no exception to my chocolate rule. I wanted to make something chocolaty, rich, and delicious, preferably in a portable cake mode. Oh, but I didn’t want all those calories to go along with it.

Glazed Blueberry Muffin Cookies

In general, I’m a fan of soft cookies over crunchy cookies. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before. Anyway, soft, fluffy cookies are just delightful. I am not generally a fan of fruit in cookies. However, this cookie may be a delicious exception. This cookie is a great mixture of soft, cake-like texture and a nice pop of blueberry. Oh, did I mention it has a cream cheese glaze? There’s that too.

So, when someone suggests a recipe idea to me or a food to make, I add it to my list. If I haven’t already made it, or if it isn’t on my blog, I take those suggestions very seriously. I compile a list of foods I want to try and what others have suggested. This recipe was inspired by my mother-in-law. When you have over ripe bananas, there is only so much you can do with them. In my opinion, the best use of bananas like that is banana bread.

If you have followed my blog, you know I love fried foods. However, I don’t like the way they make me feel. I’m not a fan of biting into food and grease shoots out of it. Disgusting. So, I’ve been working on baking “fried” food in the oven. Why fry food when you can easily bake it with the same, if not better, results? Every oven fried food I’ve made has come out very delicious, and this recipe is no exception.

Happy February everyone! Also, happy Super Bowl Sunday! I will be posting some recipes this week from our Super Bowl snackingpalooza, but for now, I wanted to post something different. Have you ever seen recipes that are “copycat” ones, such as: copycat Red Lobster cheddar biscuits, Twinkies, Olive Garden bread sticks, etc.? Well this one post is similar to a copycat post. It’s just slightly different, but the flavors are the exact same. No bake Twix cookies. These taste like a Twix bar, but better.

Now, I’m not under the delusion that everyone will love all of my recipes on here. We all have different taste buds, which I appreciate. I certainly don’t like everything that Samuel likes. Having said that, I love posting interesting recipes that are fun and unique. I have really started enjoying trying new things in the kitchen since starting my blog in November. This recipe fall under that category. Will everyone like it? No. It’s different and definitely not the norm.

Pumpkin, Chocolate, & Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies


Pumpkin, Chocolate, & Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies | jollycrumbs.com

Have you ever eaten a food and wondered where it had been your whole life? It was almost a food epiphany really. Well, I had that. I was making cookies (yes, I made cookies twice this week don’t judge me) again, only this time was different. As I was making them, I thought they looked and smelled pretty good. Then, I baked them. Then, I ate one. My world exploded into colors I’ve never seen before. These are really, really good. If you’ve never had a cookie like this, you’ll wonder where it has been your whole life.
