salted coconut caramels

I have been off work, on maternity leave, for two weeks now, and I must tell you I’m not all that good at having nothing to do. Ok, it’s not like I actually have *nothing* to do, I’ve been keeping busy fielding all kinds of amusing emails and text messages from well-meaning people coming out…

no-bake granola bars

These no-bake granola bars are quick, easy, and endlessly adaptable. Well hello! Some of you might have assumed, given the lengthy silence around these parts, that I’ve been busy having a baby.

2015: looking back, looking forward

Hi Folks! It was a quiet December around here mostly due to a really, really bonkers month at work which meant working every weekend, many nights past midnight, and during the final push an actual all nighter at the office. As I’m sure you can imagine, that took quite a toll on my very pregnant body, and…

The holiday season is full of temptation, but there are also healthy snacking options abound!

Paired with a handful of walnuts for some protein and healthy fats,…

snack attack! pair salty olives (loaded with healthy fats) with whole grain crackers for this week's snack! // themuffinmyth.com

snack attack! olives + crackers

I’ve been having my fair share of delectable olives this week in Crete, so I thought it was only appropriate to share one of my favourite snacking combos: olives and whole-grain crackers. It’s true that olives are a very fatty fruit – up to 85% of the calories in olives come from fat – but…

no sugar banana bran muffins

Five years ago, almost to the day, I published a recipe for a bran muffin sweetened with only dates and bananas. To this day it remains the recipe on this site that I am most proud of, and probably the most Muffin Mythiest muffin recipe there is, so I thought it was high time I…
