Eat and Run- Breakfast and a Muffin

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Just looking through some recipe books today- thinking it's time to make some more muffins for breakfast and freeze them. I see there are many muffins at All -in particular- breakfast muffins.

 My girls had always been the kind that it was easier for them to eat and run with a muffin then have breakfast. A favourite to everyone is Mom's Banana Muffins. I always add a few chipits to mine, but nuts work equally as well. Go with the cheaper nut- at times- peanuts may be a cheaper nut than pecans or walnuts.And most stores always have an abundance of the good old overripe bananas.Other muffin favourites of ours are carrot, blueberry and bran. We have alot of wild blueberries that grow around here. Check your reduced bins at your local grocery store for carrots or any other fixings that would be great in a muffin recipe. Pretty much anything goes.

Mom's Banana Muffins

1/2 cup vegetable oil

With an electric mixer, beat oil and sugar.
Add eggs and then bananas. Dissolve soda in sour cream. Turn mixer to low speed and slowly add soda/sour milk to banana mixture. Sift in flour and mix gently. Add nuts or chipits.Blend. Fill muffin cups and bake at 375 degrees for 17-20 minutes.
