I woke up to this today:
The snow was still coming down and no one could go anywhere and even if we could nothing was open . . . so I decided to defeat the snow day by making these:
- Don't they look tasty? I promise they totally were. And wait for it, kids: 77 calories per muffin!
- Banana Blizzard Muffins:
- 3 very ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup Honey
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
- 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 2 tablespoons Water
Preheat Oven to 375 and line or grease 24 muffin cups. Mash bananas and add honey, eggs and apple sauce. Mix in 2 tablespoons of water. Sift together dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Spoon into prepared muffin cups and bake for 10-12 minutes. Makes 24 muffins.
I hope everyone who was in the path of the storm is warm and safe! It took a long time time and three adults to do it but we pretty well got the house dug out. Now we just need a plow to come and take care of the street - its been over 24 hours and if one doesn't come by morning, I'll have no choice but to take another snow day!
