I was able to bake muffins, vacuum and do laundry. D was thrilled to play with my new computer. I looked at a few recipes and finally came up with one of my own for Banana Muffins.
I will of course share it with you.
Preheat your oven to 350 and spray a 12 cup muffin tin with nonstick spray. You could probably use the paper liners if you like – I am all out so I opted for the spray.
In a medium bowl mash 2 small bananas (about 1/2 a cup), then add 1 tbsp canola oil, 2 egg whites, 1/3 cup agave, 1/3 cup rice milk, 1/2 tsp almond extract and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Set aside to prepare dry ingredients.
In a large bowl measure 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour, 1/4 cup oat flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt. Add the wet ingredients to the dry; stir to combine but do not over mix.
Divide the batter evenly into the 12 cups. Pop in the oven for about 15 minutes – check with a toothpick to see if they are done. I left the muffins in the pan to cool for about 5 minutes then moved them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
My honey sampled one – keep in mind he never likes anything baked with whole wheat flour. Well he liked these, woo hoo – we have a winner recipe.
Onto the other eats of the day. I had a ROLL! bar for a snack after my cleaning, laundry & baking extravaganza.
For dinner I had 2 TJ’s Turkey Meatballs on an Arnold Thin with a little marinara sauce. I also roasted brussels sprouts – I roasted them in the oven with a tsp of olive oil until they were nicely browned. These little guys rocked!!!
I had a sliced golden delicious apple with my meal too.
For dessert I had to taste test my Banana Muffins. I had 2 of them with 1/2 a cup Chocolate PB Soy Delicious.
The muffins are GREAT. They are not too sweet and the banana flavor is perfect.
I am hoping to do some Yoga For Runners before we sit down to pay some bills. Maybe the yoga will relax me so that as I see our money disappear I won’t freak out. Time to get the little man up into his bed – he is being a goof-off at the moment. Have a great night.
