I have wanted to start blogging some of my cooking and recipes for a long time now and just haven’t done it. I don’t know why. I have so many pictures of food in different stages of completeness and lots of recipes to share; some of which I think people might enjoy. I guess I’ve just been a little self-conscious about it. I’m going to try and get over it and start here.
A friend of mine (thanks Amy) sent me the link to this recipe and I thought Lily would really like it. I made some changes to it to make it something that I’m happier to give to Lil.
3/4 cup of all purpose flour
3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup of organic rice drink (or milk)
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mashed bananas (about 1 1/2 bananas)
1 dash cinnamon
Here’s my ode to The Pioneer Woman.
I forgot to put the cinnamon in the picture.
Preheat oven to 400. Prepare the mini muffin pan(s) by lightly spraying with pam.
Verdict: Lily and Waldo really liked them. Waldo said they were a tiny bit dry, but he thought that was a fair trade off, given that I used applesauce instead of oil. Next time I’m going to add a little more banana and applesauce. He also said that he could barely taste the cinnamon so I’m going to add more next time.
According to the site I got the recipe from, these freeze beautifully, so I’m got a few days worth in a air tight container and the rest in the freezer.
