Chocolate and cinnamon?! I mean, come one. Another favorite combo of mine. These blondies sort of remind me of a breakfast coffee cake, but with the addition of chocolate. Not only did I use cinnamon in the batter itself, but I added cinnamon chips. If you haven’t had cinnamon blondies and you’re a cinnamon lover – it’s definitely a must!

Remember these perfect whole wheat waffles? How could you not. Here is round 2, as promised. I turned these delicious waffles into french toast! I love french toast and I love waffles, so why not have the best of both worlds. So I had waffles one day, and french toast the next. Perfect breakfast(s) if you ask me.
I love waffles. You know this. But I also love whole wheat waffles… except when they’re dense bricks. Whole wheat baked goods sometimes have a problem staying the light and fluffy consistency you know. I often use half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat to avoid this. Not these waffles. They are THEE best whole wheat waffles I have ver made (and I’ve made a lot!). One of the tricks is using whole wheat pastry flour, since it’s a finer consistency. These are the waffles you can turn someone who “doesn’t like whole wheat” into a believer. (Maybe a picky kid perhaps?)
Happy Cinco de Mayo! I love making ‘themed’ desserts, and since we had a little double-dinner-date with some friends last night, I made these Margarita Mini Cakes. Since I don’t want to get my unborn child tipsy, I left out the tequila. But I added it to the recipe as an option, just in case you wanted some. I think they’re delicious either way!
