One nice thing about a miserable winter with too much snow, hail and wind and way too many sub-freezing temps was that it gave me a good excuse opportunity to get caught up on reading. I am a slave to best-sellers' lists! But I also love word-of-mouth recommendations. Anyhoo, these were my favorite winter reads:
Probably most everyone has "Eat Healthier" at the top of the resolutions list. I ran across this tasty muffin recipe with oat flour, oats and bananas. No eggs or white sugar. A little ginger, cinnamon and molasses for good measure. Made a batch this morning and really liked them. Bagged them by 2s and popped them into the freezer.
Banana Oat Muffins
Spray a 12 hole muffin tin with coconut oil spray. Preheat oven to 365 degrees.
Mash 2 or 3 ripe bananas and add 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, sprinkle or two of ground ginger, 1 T molasses and 1/2 t vanilla. Mix well and set aside.
In a separate bowl whisk together 1/2 cup rolled oats, 2 cups oat flour, 2 t baking powder, 1 t baking soda, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 t salt and 1 t cinnamon. Stir in the banana mixture and combine well. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin. Bake 18 minutes.
