The Muffins Julia Roberts Makes For Breakfast

These baked treats definitely don't taste like health food. Plus, three more favorite recipes from celebrities.

    She's probably best known for her roles in Steel Magnolias, Pretty Woman and Erin Brockovich, but we think Julia Roberts also deserves major props for her delicious and nutritious banana muffins. They perfectly encapsulate the actor's healthy, natural California vibe -- and, lucky us, we found the recipe in Candace Nelson's new The Sprinkles Baking Book. They're pumped up with omega-3-rich hemp hearts and flaxseed meal, plus antioxidant-filled, crunchy chia seeds. Plus, the muffins are sweetened with coconut sugar, which beautifully complements the banana flavor.

    Nashvillian Reese Witherspoon learned everything she knows about Southern hospitality from her grandparents Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon. Dorothea, who drove white Cadillacs and always wore pearls, was a renowned entertainer, and her buttermilk biscuits were always crowd-pleasers. Bake them until the tops are puffed and golden brown -- and then split one open to reveal the pillowy goodness inside.

    Jamie Oliver says shortbread is a great dessert if you're unsure what to make (especially if it's for a party where there will be other items on the table), and we have to agree: It's simple enough to accompany a cup of tea, but can also complement anything from panna cotta to a tart. The British celebrity chef's version is buttery, crumbly and adaptable, so you can add flavors such as lemon or orange, even lavender.

    In 2005, viewers and readers saw Oprah like they'd never seen her before -- preparing a batch of sizzling-hot corn fritters. "One morning, Stedman asked me for those corn fritters, so I just did it my own way," she says. They're supereasy to make; you can use fresh, frozen or canned corn. The one non-negotiable: cornmeal. It gives the cakes nice texture and a bit of heft.
