20 Recipes to Try When You’re Stress Baking

When you’re stressed, it’s only natural that you’re going to try to do something to help yourself feel better, right? For some, that might be a long run. For others, a face mask, bath, early bedtime, chat with a therapist or close friend, a night in front of your TV, or a healthy meal at home. But for people who enjoy baking, that’s a pretty common way to relieve a little stress. In my opinion, it’s one of the best. Less stress and you get treats at the end for your effort? Sounds like a win-win to me.

While you’re inside, stressed, and maybe a little stir-crazy, these recipes are here for you for any and all of your stress baking needs.
