What I particularly enjoy about this recipe is the amount of salt in it. While it does have some brown sugar to help bring out the sweetness in the pumpkin and corn, it’s most definitely a muffin erring more on the side of "savory" than "sweet." Perfect, in my opinion, to enjoy over a cup of coffee in the morning or pass around the dinner table at night.
Give it a go and feel free to experiment with some of your favorite variations. Want to top it with chopped nuts or streusel? Go right ahead. Hankering to fold in 1 cup of shredded dry Jack or sharp cheddar cheese? Brilliant! – Patrick Deckertags: breakfast snacks lunch box brunch rice, grains and breads vegetables bake more
My newly teenaged daughter loves chocolate, but she also loves my lemon squares, but I don't make them very often, as they are not a majority favorite in my house. The other day I made these lime bars as a riff on the lemon squares and we both liked them even more.tags: desserts lunch box cookies fruit bake more

I am a self-professed saltaholic, and love nothing more than a crispy, salty snack to mindlessly munch. I made these roasted garbanzo beans (chickpeas) and was pleased with the result – a healthy substitute for salty chips.tags: snacks lunch box Budget-Friendly beans bake more
