My Best Ever (Accidental) Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

chocolate-pumpkin-muffins-3

Sometimes things just don’t go as planned, ya know? Like when you set out to bake 24 delicious, fluffy pumpkin muffins and you accidentally add six tablespoons of cocoa powder to the mix.

Uh, yeah. Whoops.

One might wonder how this type of accident happens, so let me explain it to you. First of all, keep in mind that I had been sick for over a week when this incident occurred (I just don’t think straight when I’m under the weather).

None of them have really stuck with me, so I decided to keep things simple and create my own. This recipe is actually very similar to my original homemade latte recipe; the only real difference is that you add pumpkin pie spice to the coffee grounds! It’s so simple but so incredibly delicious. Read More

If you know me at all, you probably know that I LOVE my sleep. I feel fully rested somewhere between 9-10 hours a night, but since life doesn’t often allow me that luxury, I usually get somewhere between 7-8 hours. For most people that may enough, but I still wake up tired. As you can guess, this only fuels my already existent love for coffee.

I’ve learned over the years that it’s not good to drink copious amounts of coffee, though. My favorite doctor-author, Joel Furhman, suggests that if you must have coffee, try and limit yourself to one cup per day. That being said, if I’m going to limit myself in an effort to support my health, I’ve decided that there is absolutely no time to drink bad coffee! Read More
