"Pink Pie"

“Pink Pie”

My 2.5 year old took a very recent liking to eating muffins, except for some reason he calls muffins “pie”. Today he asked for a “pink pie.” Lucky for us, we had strawberry jam in our fridge, and I always have the other muffin ingredients on hand. I whipped these up lickety-split! There’s no added sugar because the jam is already sweetened (plus they contain banana). This recipe makes 10 toddler-sized muffins (meaning I didn’t fill them very full). Enjoy!

Strawberry Jam Muffins

Dry Ingredients:

1/2 C all-purpose flour
1/3 C oat flour
1/3 C corn flour
1/3 C quinoa flour (ground quinoa)
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder

Wet Ingredients:

1/2 C organic strawberry jam (or try another flavor!)
1 mashed ripe banana
2 T liquid oil (avocado, olive, canola)
1/4 C soy milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350-370 degrees (this depends on your oven…I used to bake all my muffins at 350 degrees but then I moved to a new home and I have to set it to 370 degrees.)
  2. Combine dry ingredients in medium bowl.
  3. Mash banana on a plate and mash in other wet ingredients.
  4. Add wet blend to the dry ingredients.
  5. Portion in muffin liners or a greased muffin pan (I’m a fan of the silicone muffin liners!)
  6. Bake for 23 minutes (check at about 20 minutes).
  7. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
  8. Enjoy the “pie”!

All Mixed-Up, in Bend, Oregon

I’m visiting my family in Bend, Oregon.

Ever since my niece and nephew were little, my sister has used the words “treat land” to describe dessert.

Last evening, after our dinner of homemade veggie burgers, roasted cauliflower, and baked beans, the 9 year old said she knew exactly what she wanted for “T.L.”

She suggested we all take a stroll to the frozen yogurt shop, where they offer non-dairy sorbets.  Who could say no to that, on a pretty spring evening?  All Mixed-Up is located in Northwest Crossing.

Lucky for vegans, All Mixed-Up has a section for non-dairy sorbets.  You can pick between two flavors or swirl the two together.  Last night they had coconut and strawberry lemonade flavors.  The selection changes from time to time.  You can also pick some toppings.  The fresh fruit, chopped nuts and a few other items are vegan.  The price for your treat is determined by weight.

I hid some strawberries and blackberries in the bottom of my bowl and I opted for a little of each yogurt flavor.  I sprinkled the coconut side with some chopped peanuts, mochi cubes and an Oreo style cookie half.  Delicious!

Final tip:

All Mixed-Up also has vegan soups.

I’ll have to go back for the soup at another time.
