Great Summer Recipes
Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter Churro Doughnuts with cinnamon sticks in the background on a white background

I’m a sucker for a great doughnut, but sometimes I want to eat a whole dozen of them. My doctor tells me that eating that much fried dough isn’t good for me, but I’ve found a loophole. My Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter “Churro” Doughnuts are baked not fried. You still probably shouldn’t eat a dozen of them by yourself though.

Cinnamon Almond Carrot Cake Muffins on a cooling rack with peanut butter spread on the half cut muffin on a white background

This is usually where I’d make a clever joke about rabbits, but when it comes to my Cinnamon Almond Carrot Cake Muffins, I don’t mess around. Trust me, the joke I had was good. Real good. Make sure you hurry to the grocery store and get everything you need—don’t forget JUSTIN’S® Cinnamon Almond Butter. Okay, I didn’t really have a joke. I couldn’t think of anything.

 

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge in cupcake wrappers stacked on a cloth with Justin's peanut butter and milk jar in the background
