Snickerdoodle Muffins

I’m not usually one to follow the crowd.

Ok, that’s a lie. I snubbed skinny jeans for a loooong time, and now I’m in.

And I didn’t even consider hemp hearts, or chia seeds, or many of the other weird things that I eat now, until I saw a whole stream of other bloggers take the first step.

So, really, this recipe should come as no surprise.

Have you noticed the stream of crazy hybrid dessert recipes floating around lately?

These brownies are really a mash up of brownie batter, cookie dough, and Oreo cookies.

And then there’s these Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Cupcakes

And don’t forget the ever popular concept of wrapping bite sized candy bars in cookie dough and baking them.. Or, if you’re Matty B, just eating them raw.

I put spinach in all the kid’s smoothies.

Our bedtime snacks are always bowls of crudités and fresh fruit.

But these Snickerdoodle Cupcakes Muffins? I didn’t even try.

They’re vegan, certainly. They are not, capital NOT healthy.

On the bottom, a cinnamon spice muffin cupcake. On the top, an honest to goodness Snickerdoodle cookie. I thought it was genius. I thought I was being creative.

Genius? Absolutely.

Creative? Maybe not. At least I didn’t poke a mini Snickers bar down in the middle. Yet…

  1. Lots of eye-candy on this post chica!! Those look delish. I have to tell you, however; I just can’t do the skinny jeans. I did them in the 80’s, but now you can’t get me to give up my favorite boot-cut pair. Hehe – oh well. Celeste :)
