Hazelnut Flour Muffins with a Coffee Cream Cheese Topping

IMG_7272

I’ve recently been playing around with hazelnut flour as I came across a bag of this in a supermarket.   I substituted a few recipes that I usually use almond flour with the hazelnut flour and was delighted with the results.   I love the hazelnut flavour and combined it with coffee for the cream cheese topping.  You could change the topping or omit it all together.   I liked it as it reminded me of a coffee and walnut cake.  If you don’t have hazelnut flour you could make your own by grinding the nuts (the same way that you would make almond flour).  Sadly for me, hazelnuts are not in abundance where I live so you can understand my excitement when I came across a bag of this flour and saw how low in carbs it was too.  I think I squealed out loud with girlish glee….makes a change from my loud swearing at seeing how expensive the cauliflowers are in that shop.

Yummy, tell me more Diva…

Coffee Hand Scrub

This one is for coffee lovers.  Although I love the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee I do not drink it for fear of bouncing off the walls in a caffeine frenzy!  This scrub is a great exfoliater as well as a moistuiser.   This can be used on the feet as well as the hands.   I recommend that you put this on over the sink as it can get messy!
