Roasted Banana Muffins

Roasted Banana Muffins

by Pam on March 3, 2013

I have been seeing a lot of roasted banana bread out in the blogosphere and the idea of roasting the bananas intrigued me. I happened to have three over ripe bananas in the freezer to use up so I decided to make the kids some muffins for an after school snack. I first thawed my frozen bananas out then roasted them for 20 minutes. The smell of them roasting is outstanding! Seriously, I was drooling over the smell. I used some whole wheat in the muffins instead of all white flour to make them a bit healthier. The muffins turned out to be flavorful, moist, and super delicious. My son and daughter both loved them and asked if they could have them for breakfast the following day and I loved that they made my house smell amazing while they baked.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees then coat a muffin pan with cooking spray. Line a baking sheet with tin foil.

Place the thawed over ripe bananas on the baking sheet.

Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool for 10-15 minutes.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, roasted bananas, and vanilla then continue beating until well combined.  In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove together, mix well. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just combined.

Place into the oven and bake 23-25 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the muffins cool on a rack. Slather with butter and enjoy!

Pecan, Coconut, and Cherry Granola

Pecan, Coconut, and Cherry Granola

by Pam on December 8, 2013

Homemade granola is so easy to make, tastes WAY better than store bought granola, and is so much healthier (if you want it to be). I decided to whip up a batch this weekend. I had an afternoon snack with this granola over some Greek coconut yogurt and it was amazing! My kids both enjoyed their granola with a bit of milk and said it was “SO GOOD”! This homemade granola is great with yogurt, as cereal, plain, and over ice cream. If you have never made your own granola – try this recipe! It is so DELICIOUS!

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking dish with the silpat mat.

Heat the coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat until just warmed and the oil has become a liquid. Set aside.

Combine the oatmeal, chopped pecans, coconut, salt, and brown sugar together in a large bowl. Mix until well combined. Add the maple syrup mixture to the granola mixture and mix well until evenly coated.

Spread out evenly on the baking sheet.

Place into the oven and bake, stirring every 10 minutes, for 30-40 minutes, or until it’s golden brown and crispy. Cool completely on the baking sheet before adding the dried cherries. Pour the homemade granola into an airtight container. Enjoy!
