Hi, guys! Happy Saturday! Just wanted to share a fun recipe that I created for The Laughing Cow the other day.

These Gluten-Free Golf Green Apple Muffins turned out so well, and they’d be perfect for any kind of golf-themed get-together this spring, especially a brunch. They’re made with almond meal, chunks of apple, honey, pecans, and cinnamon, so they’re hearty, satisfying, and slightly sweet. The “frosting” is simply Light Swiss from The Laughing Cow mixed with green food coloring. The combination of sweet + cheesy + nutty is absolutely delicious!

The other day, my friends at The Laughing Cow sent me this “what is your snacking style?” flowchart, and I thought it was cool. Just wanted to share it with you guys!
