Nutella Swirled Peanut Butter Chips Blondie – Delishar

This is my first blondie, and quite honestly I’m liking it a lot! It’s a one bowl bake that requires no mixer and very little clean up! The blondie has a caramel-ish flavour with a fudgy center, and a crackling top. Very interesting texture! I love the balance of the slightly salty peanut butter chips, caramel center, and the distinct taste of the Nutella that everyone loves!

After taking the pictures, I cut them up further into 4 smaller bite size pieces for each square, and boy are they addictive! I had to keep them away from my home to exercise some self-control. So I took them to school to contribute to the table of goodies and my colleagues were popping them non-stop. :p But hey, I’m sharing the goodness! 🙂

Banana Peanut Butter Nutella Muffins – Delishar

The night before baking, I asked my girls if they would like to make some muffins for breakfast. The both of them jumped in joy, randomly shouting out the muffins they’d like to make. “Apple muffins! Chocolate muffins! Banana muffins! Yummy muffins!”, they were so excited. So we had a short discussion before deciding on banana muffins, and of course with some chocolate in it. I suggested Nutella. This is going to be the first time that they are introduced to that jar of sinful deliciousness. 

Yeah, we have been pretty strict about the girls’ diet. But we also believe in everything in moderation. The girls have to earn their own muffins by making it themselves. With some help from mummy, of course. My eldest, Melody helped with measuring the ingredients, mashing the bananas, and whisking the dry ingredients. Peighton lined the muffin tins, and helped with mixing the wet ingredients. They both took turns to mix in the wet and dry ingredients. And while I wasn’t looking, they sneakily popped a few peanut butter chips in their mouth.

It was a learning experience not just for the girls but also for myself. I had to learn to let go, and not be such a perfectionist about flour flying all over the place, and not exact measurements. I had to tell myself that each swirl that the girls created is uniquely beautiful on its own. It was an experience where I had to focus on the present, and allow myself to take in the positive energy exuded by the girls, rather than focusing on the should haves. I’m thankful for this experience, and grateful for the smiles and joy on the girls faces. They were truly mindful, and being in the moment. I’ve got so much to learn from them.

Oops! This post sort of took a turn to be a reflective piece! Oh well, the muffin turned out awesome by the way! They were soft, fluffy, and makes the perfect little snack! If you have not tried baking with your kids, you should. It’s a great bonding experience, but be prepared to make a mess, and just have fun. 🙂
