  • Lexi, these look amazing and I can’t wait to try making them! But, there was one thing I noticed in your video…It looked like your skillet and muffin pan were non-stick. I thought non-stick pans were a no-no because they are not healthy to cook with. Please let me know what you think.

  • These are absolutely delicious. Eating one now with a salad for lunch. Made one batch in my muffin tin but they stuck a little and I was tired and didn’t want to continue baking them 12 at a time ( I had doubled the recipe) . So I lined a 9×13″ pan with parchment and just baked the whole thing and cut it into squares and it worked perfect. I’ll just freeze the portions that way. I am so excited to try all the delicious recipes on this site. I have 4 more printed and ready to go.
