Happy Saturday, friends!
Since Luis proposed, I can't think of the last Saturday we didn't have something major to do or somewhere important to be. Today is the first day in over a year that I am doing nothing with no apologies! Plus, my back has been killing me since sand volleyball, so I decided to meander through a few loads of laundry and try a new muffin recipe I've been eyeballing on my Kitchen 526 board for a long time. The recpie in question? PUMPKIN. BANANA. OATMEAL. MUFFINS. YES PLEASE!
Fall is basically code for PUMPKIN in my kitchen. So here's how Mom Endeavors' recipe turned out for me in my little northern Illinois apartment :-)
Here's a look at the dry ingredients: oatmeal "flour", cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and I added about 1/4 cup of dried cranberries and 1/4 cup of walnuts that I had on hand.
After mixing that up real good, I added my wet ingredients: eggs, pumpkin puree (YUMMM!!), two ripe bananas (OHH YEAH!!!), some oil (I didn't have applesauce), and vanilla. Are you drooling yet?
I greased up my pan and popped these babies into a hot oven. They made my house smell amazing, by the way.
And presto! Here's now they came out 20 minutes later!
My rating? The muffins were reeeeally good! They were a delicious blend of sweet and savory and just the most wonderful fall treat. If you've got these ingredients tucked in your cabinets, go for it and give this great recipe a try.
