I had a weird afternoon on Thursday, and somehow I decided that I should bake.
So bake I did! We had three bananas that needed to be used for something besides eating, and I love All Recipes’ website. I just typed in “bananas” and “muffins” (because I figured I could do that. And then I perused the choices. I came up with one that sounded yummy…and I was right! Side note: I like to think that I usually am right.
They turned out very well!
Click here for the recipe in its original form, but see below for the way that I did it.
- 3/4 cup butter – softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas
- 3/4 cup honey
- 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, bananas and honey; mix well. Combine dry ingredients; stir into creamed mixture just until moistened. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until cupcakes test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
If you are into Weight Watchers, these are 5 points. Not too shabby.
I liked them!
Ok – before you go too nuts on me about the raw egg bit, I am not forcing them to eat these. They asked for them, and they are nearly 18. Soon they will need to make their own choices without me, right? I know…I am just trying to convince myself that I did not poison them.
What are you baking lately? What are your favorite websites for recipes?
What are you doing reading this blog when there is a Sioux hockey game on and it is beautiful outside!?!?!?! Seriously – is anyone else loving Minnesota’s new March?
