instead of the same ole' cereal. For weeks I have been on a "snack kick" for after school and now I may move on from that *since I've found some great snack recipes through Kids in The Kitchen as well as magazines and blogs. Now I think I am gonna move to breakfast ideas in my house. I think Lu was excited for a "change" and now that the muffins are gone I have to find something to replace them :) so onto my new adventure I will go!! Got any ideas? *I would really rather make something that will last all week like muffins or homemade waffles frozen so that I dont have to cook so early every single morning*
We made Simple Banana Muffins and at the end we changed it up a bit for some variety, so heres the how to:Lightly beat 1 egg, then pour in 1 cup of sugar and stir, then 1/3 cup of melted butter, and stir again!
In another bowl mash up 4 bananas *we used a potato masher* and doesn't this picture say it all! "Mom I've gotta use ALL my strength here, quick putting the pressure on me by snapping so many pictures"
Add the bananas to the first bowl *w/ sugar and egg* then add to the bowl 1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt. STIR WELL!
We divided the mixture into 3 ways.
Added nothing else to the first mixture, to the second mixture we added 2 handfuls of choc chips, and to the third mixture added finely chopped walnuts. All 3 were really tasty. My choice was the banana/walnut. Of course Lu's choice was banana/choc. And Joshy liked them all :)
