Eat Like Nina Dobrev

Hi peeps!

Can I get a WOOP WOOP?! YAY, its Friday again which means its time for another Eat Like blog where I show case a menu of the Celeb of the Week. Today's blog is about Nina Dobrev, born Nina Konstantinova Dobreva of Bulgarian descent; or better known as Elena from The Vampire Diaries. This dark-haired beauty is a mere 55kg's and her favourite colour is black. Her other favourite things include, cheetahs, Grey's Anatomy and a novel by the title "The Lovely Bones" (that's a pretty good book, that! I've read it too and thoroughly enjoyed it. Its penned by Alice Sebold). This Capricorn's favourite foods include chocolate, pizza- especially pizza tonno and peanut butter puffins with unsweetend almond milk. Go figure! I've never even heard of that! Sounds like its worth finding a recipe for this weird and wacky dessert and I was lucky to find one at And here it is: (onviously this is an american recipe, so for the rest of us, we gonna have to wing it if we wanna bake these babies)

Peanutbutter Puffins with Unsweetend Almond Milk
1/2 c. Organic Oat Flour
1/2 c. dry medium-grind corn meal
1/3 c. smooth organic peanut butter
1 1/4 c. unsweetened Vanilla almond milk
1 tbsp. sweet organic brown rice syrup
1/4 tsp. sea salt

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. (180C)
2. Mix together dry ingredients first, then add wet ones. Stir until no lumps.
3. Spread onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (foil will work if sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, but not as well, trust me!). I wasn’t able to spread the goop (hehe) all the way to each edge, but close enough. Just spread out until pretty thin (a lil less than 1/4 inch should work).
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until it starts browning at the edges.
5. Remove from oven, remove parchment paper (with goop) from cookie sheet and cut into one inch slices. Then put the slices back onto the cookie sheet and into the oven to crisp a bit more. I left ‘em in for an additional 10 minutes, flipping half way. They got really nice and crisp! Remove from oven and YUMMO!

They taste even better after they’ve been refrigerated.

Note: if you like your Puffins a little sweeter, add 1/2 tbsp. more brown rice syrup. As they are, there are more savory than they are sweet.

Well, Nina, there you go! An awesome recipe for your peanutbutter puffins with almond milk. Enjoy girlfriend! Hope you all do too. Have a great weekend all and see you bright eyed but not so bushy tailed on Monday.
