Banana muffins with butterscotch chips

Posted by on Jun 6, 2015 in Snack Bar | 0 comments

My husband went crazy for these – so so good! Next time I will definitely double. This recipe is so quick and simple. Start with your oven preheated to 400 for the first 5 mins than reduce to 350 for the remaining 15 – (20 mins baking in total). I find this method works best for me and my oven, but I played around with temps and times many times before using this as my base. 3 large ripe bananas, mashed 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup white sugar (could use all white if preferred) 1 egg 1⁄3 cup melted...

Maple berry muffins

The other day my friend served muffins at a play date and they were so good I asked for the recipe right away.  She wanted them to be more moist so I made a few modifications. The results are so tasty I needed to get the muffins out of sight so they would last for through the week. Bonus, it is maple syrup season and these are a delicious way to incorporate one of Canada’s staples =) Here is what you need: 2 cups flour (I used 1c white, 1c whole wheat) 1/4 cup  sugar 1 tbsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp baking...

Best yet Oat & Choc chip Muffins

This was a great Sunday morning. I made my best muffins I’ve made to date, but as a result I don’t have enough left to last the week. I’ve been trying to make a muffin that rises with a crispy top and I was pleased how this fast-to-throw-together recipe turned out. This morning I watched a video on the chemistry of baking and did some research on muffin making which I think helped. I took a very basic recipe and added my own flair to make these very flavorful. I absolutely love my silicone muffin...

Okay, so it’s not exactly the season for pumpkin, but I’ve been thinking about pumpkin muffins a lot so I had to follow through with a recipe. I recently purchased a pumpkin muffin and just loved it! It got me thinking that my muffins are never so light and fluffy so I was on a mission to try again. I read lots of recipes and reviews then went for it. The results were yummy and in fact I am loving a warm muffin now =) However, these were not like the fluffy, puffy muffins I’d purchased so my...
