BANANAS N’ NUTSCAKES

it’s been a while since i baked anything other than emergency microwave brownies and muddy buddies (which aren’t baked at all, actually), so today i decided to make something yum. enter banana cupcakes with vanilla frosting topped with wet walnuts. they’re sweet and moist and purdy good if i do say so myself.

GINGER GLAZED MATCHA MUFFINS

i don’t love green tea, but for some reason i’ve really wanted to bake with matcha green tea powder for a long time. when i took my first bite of these muffins they were surprisingly tea-y, and by the second bite i was hooked. they’re very subtle and faintly sweet with a nice leafy green color. nummmmm.

CHOCOLATE SALTED ALMOND COOKIES

these cookies were inspired by an especially yummy chocolate bar i once had. they’d be REALLY good with chocolate chips (or chopped up dark chocolate ritter sport, my choco of choice) but it was 10pm when i made these and i didn’t have any. these really did the trick though, and they’re especially good fresh out of the oven.

CHEWY PIGNIOLI SUGAR COOKIES

my first attempt at pignioli cookies was a miserable failure and i have not touched almond paste since, but once i made almond milk i needed something to do with the pulp-turned-almond meal. these cookies are basically an almond flavored sugar cookie covered in icing and pine nuts.. not really a pignioli cookie, but who cares? they’re crunchy and chewy at the same time and i think they’re pretty freaking tasty.
