So this may or may not have been made a few months ago but I just found some pictures and felt like sharing...
around Valentines I found some flimsy silicone muffin trays (pans?) in the shape of hearts and I'm not one to shy away from novelty kitchenware, let me tell you!

They may look like misshapen lumps but hot damn, do they taste good!

I used this awesome recipe:

Strawberry Banana Muffins
Ingredients (use vegan versions if you want):
4 oz. unsalted non-hydrogenated vegan margarine
1 1/4 cup vegan sugar (anything that isn't refined)
1 banana
2 cup flour (I use whole wheat)
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegan milk substitute, with a little arrowroot as thickener (You don't have to use arrowroot if you use about 1/2 cup of flax meal, the best egg replacer and nutrient-adder ever)
1 teaspoon vanilla
15 fresh strawberries, dry, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
Directions:
Cream together margarine and vegan sugar until light and fluffy. Add the banana, and cream until well blended. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Combine soy milk, arrowroot and vanilla. Alternate adding wet and dry mixtures to creamed mixture. Fold in strawberries. Fill muffin tins nearly full, and bake at 375F for 25 to 30 minutes.

It turned out that they were quite decadent and could almost be cupcakes (aside from the whole healthy tasting factor).  So, being xhxcorexemox I split some of them in half and filled the gap with organic strawberry jam which looked much more badass and tasted much more awesome!

The best part is that they stayed sooo moist the next day, I don't think they lasted much longer than that.

You can also make 'em with other berries, get fancy with jams or glazes, or just keep 'em banana if you're feeling simplistic.  Viva la Muffcakes!

I would actually love some for breakfast right now too, haha.

That is my favorite plate and I use it for all my food "presentations", like the food is endorsed by superheroes or has superhero powers so it's super awesome.

When I first read the post i thought it was about me being mean. I was like 'hurry up' when the page was loading. i am just glad it is not about me being heartless!
