Banana Blizzard Muffins

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!

    What do you do when you have a snow day? (Feel free to fill in whatever crippling weather event happens in your climate if necessary)


    1. Those really do look yummy!! I don't normally do baking, but that is something I'd be willing to try!

    2. Oh my goodness, we never see that much snow here in Oregon. Way to make the most of a snow day.
