Double Coconut Maui Muffins. (GF + Vegan)

This week in Los Angeles, it has been so perfectly gloomy. There is a strange symphony of sounds outside my window. Birds happily chirping to the cloudy grey skies, as busy cars splash through puddles along the slick streets. It is a slow and cozy start to spring, with yes ok, a few patches of blue sky and sunshine. And I looooove it.

This wet weather (and maybe cold weather if you are out east!) is perfect for curling up with a new book, cradling a mug of matcha or ginger tea, and nibbling freshly baked muffins. Muffins like these I am sharing today..

Vegan, gluten-free, no-sugar-added Double Coconut Maui Muffins. They are super simple to make and have the most luscious, rich and moist coconut texture. They taste like a tropical island feels to your skin and senses. Get my recipe and find out which three books I am excited about this week!


Dueling Avocado + Sweet Potato Kale Salad

My ultimate salad bowl duel. Avocado and sweet potato facing off on a bed of kale. Boom.

For my Dueling Avocado + Sweet Potato Kale Salad, buttery avocado mingles with caramelized cubes of golden sweet potato, ribbons of beets, protein-rich hemp seeds and a creamy vegan dressing with spicy, sweet, smoky flavors.

(warning.. serious fan girling ahead. Hamilton. Swoon.)

Aside from this amazing salad, another one of my obsessions lately is the Broadway musical Hamilton. Anyone else?
